Thank you, Linda. The petroglyphs are the real ones (beside the funny ones of our times). "Baronimpossible" alias Simon makes a great egypt pharao Wink

I love how you gave such a modern twist to King Tut! This is such a unique concept that I haven't seen before.

Thanks Peter, and always when I look at it - I see that I have not enough shadows at the "hat" - TRUE - but still like it Laughing out loud

Cool pastel work and funny idea ^^. A bit flat on the hat (or whatever that was called ^^), but I understand this is an old pic.
The expression is wonderful!

oh man! what a brilliant idea and execution! I think you've made Simon reeeally happy with this Wink - you have a very unique artistic eye bringing vivid facial features and certain sensitivity and personality in portraits, I admire that.. - very good job!

Hi Rita! So, this is what the famed Mr Dominic looks like hmm? I know him as Baron Impossible over on CGTalk and have marvelled at his works for a good while now. This is a great portrait! I love how you've handled the lighting and the folds in his skin. I alos like how the eyes aren't overworked... in a lot of portraiture, people pay too attention to them and not the rest of the piece, but you've struck a nice balance. And his chest hair is very well done too... cracking stuff!

Hi Dan, glad you liked them. When I decided to paint "modern" symbols mixed with the ancient ones - I couldnt stop laughing...

Hey Rita,
This is a great concept. I especially like the symbols in the background. The bicycle and smiley face. Cracked me up!
