Artwork Description

OK, I went ahead and did it...I made a larger (in color) version of Grevious Angel (luckily, it worked out both for a class assignment and to have a new piece for DragonCon). It turned out pretty good, I think...but I would love opinions, of course!

There is a message, but hopefully not in your face...the title is a clue.

I am mesmerized by this image... cannot stop staring at it... the colors, so vivid, the imagery... just gorgeous and intense. I dabble in watercolors but this simply blows my mind. I also enjoy your spooky subjects, the 'spooky' is something I explore (via photography) on my own website- LostDestinations.com Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful gift with us, Ken --Shady

Hey Ken, Thanks for all the kind words, I've seen your work in Spectrum and really dig your stuff also! I did a bunch of cover stuff for White-Wolf a few years back, but haven't worked with them in a while.

I have to admit I browse this site as a hobbyist who enjoys the art that is produced in fantasy settings and more. And I've been a fan of your work from the very first image of yours I've seen White-wolf publish. Finding your collection here and seeing all of my favorite images in one place is just awesome. But seeing this peice.

It is simply gorgeous I could stare at it all day long.

Ken - I am running out of words - praising your work...

Hey, Ken...how do you keep your edges crisp, in your watercolors? Do you use some sort of mask/frisket? This is one of my faves, to be sure....

Thanks again to everyone! Ward, the painting is about 20 x 30 or so.

This is water colour? Amazing palette! I was not aware you could get this effect with water colour - great job.

Ah excellent! So nice to get to see this with color (although the b/w version still has its own appeal). And yes, stupid wars suck stupidly. Sad

Brilliant use of complimentary colors. Fantastic pose and expression. Superbly rendered. Um...I dig it!

The message... WTC -- Baghdad?

Art at its best.
