This is indeed quite inspiring work....I absolutely love the Klimt influence here in this one!
All great artists usually grab their inspiration from the works of others....
take care,

In any case, I like your accepted portrait. Very well done.

Very Klimt-y, extremely decorative but a little ironic too?

wow cool what a coincidence i did my selfportrait in klimt style at first too but they didn't accept it so i made another one!

BEAUTIFUL. I love Klimt, and I love your drawing. How talentuous you are !!!

djinn's picture

Well, the drawing is based on a picture taken at my wedding party, so I was probably feeling rather smug. Smile

Nice work, May-Lin! The amount of detail is magnificent. Like the smile
Smile -what were you thinking just then?

I just noticed that three out of my five gallery pictures have Klimt influence...lol. Patience...I have a lot, but every time I finish a picture I tell myself that the next one is going to be looser and less detailed...and every time I end up with something like this. It's a curse!

djinn's picture

Yup, this is me. Crooked smile and all. Smile Thanks for your comment.

Hello! Is this you May-Lin? lovely colour extravaganza! nicely detailed and beautifully coloured, excellent!

Yay! more Klimt influence! I love the blend of realism and stylized shapes in this. (You must have SO much patience to execute those subtle, complex patterns in the gown. )

Art at its best.
