Wow! Your coloured pencil work is tremendous! I especially love the skin tones, and the characterization! Amazing work!

James, just browsing through your gallery again. This is my favorite. Remarkable job of skin texture, especially in the "laugh lines" on the smirk. The warm orange colors are perfect.

What an absolutely lovely comment, Lai! thank you so very much!

I always enjoy returning to you gallery.
Well, there is something beside your perfect technique, something with the emotion -- your characters are always so cheerful and merry. Even I was in a bad mood, I cant help beening touched by them and having smile on my face too.

And that is the very important value of art and painting, to make this world more beautiful Smile

I don't know how you get those lustrous, vibrant colors out of a pencil! This painting just glows!

Thanks Ihsan! I rely quite a bit on character in my work, hoping it will make up for any inadequacies! lol!

Cheers, Bill! doing this one again in colour was a blast!

You sure get some great character into those facial expressions, James Smile Nice to see this delightful work. There are a lot of subtle touches and details here. Nice work!

Excellent work again Jim! I love the expression and all the great little details.

Thanks, Tom, I did this on dark brown heavy catridge paper, which meant having to do a few layers of pencils, especially white, it does seem to give the impression of paint!

Thanks, Mary! I thought I'd try and catch that summery feel that you seem to excel in!

somerset's picture

Thank you Vicki! yeah, the spider guy was inspired by Ric Quiros's great illustrations!

Thank you, and it's funny you should mention the weather, Anne! cause the heat has caused me no end of trouble, y'see I draw flat so sweating hands can be a problem specially with watercolour pencils! drip drip..Argh!!!

somerset's picture

Thanks Rita, I,ve always liked this expression, and I just had to do a colour version to enhance it!

Art at its best.
