Artwork Description

Just finished this Tori Amos piece for a calendar I am helping to put together with some other artists to benefit the organization, RAINN. Any opinions? I am debating whether to leave the digitally added symbol above her head.

Thanks again, Michele...the crappy part is, I just gave it to the San Diego Comicon Art Auction (proceeds to charity), and it only got 200 bucks...and that is WITH a calendar signed by Tori! Oy.

I love this. You have done a wonderful job capturing a likeness, and that stonework looks so good it makes me want to reach out and touch it.

This is very nicely done. I really like the stones in the wall especially, but they wouldn't look half as good if the rest of the image wasn't also working so well. Really nice!

Thanks....I waffled on the star symbol, but thought it needed something to liven it up.

Did you order the new Tori calendar on the RAINN site?

I dont like it it looks like it was put there after the thoght of the the art work. Im a BIG Tori fan and that look you gave her is hers. I LOVE IT.

Good suggestion, where were you when I needed you? I was sorta thinking of having it symbolize her thoughts and being, but behind the hand woulda been nice too.

I like the symbol, but it seems a little out of place. Where it is, it does detract a bit from Tori, who I think is supposed to be the focus. Maybe putting it on her chest, peeking out from behind her hand? Just a thought...

Nicely done, I like the symbol. What does Tori think? 8^)

Hey its Santiwana, Im not logged in right now, but I love it! I actually did a video for taxivision, but I didnt think it was up to her standards so I didn't enter it even though everyonelse disagreed with me. I dont know about the digital symbol above her head, I like it, but it kind of seperates from the rest of the picture? I don't know just my opinion. Smile Otherwise I love it!!!

thanks very much lisa. glad you think the digital doesn't stand out too much (and, yeah, the rest if watercolor, which if you put the time in, I am sure you could master).

I like the symbol, I think it fits well with the rest of the piece. I could tell it was digital, but it doesn't look strange there. As for the rest of it, it's watercolor, right? I love that, I wish I could get it to work for me. It's a very beautiful composition.

Art at its best.
