The first time I opened this I laughed and even though I knew what to expect the second time round I still laughed. What a truly wonderful painting, Artby. I keep thinking he is about to jump out of the computer at me he seems so real.

Now THIS is a case where the title is important to the piece. Beautifully painted and very evocative.

Thanks. I was shooting for whimsical with a hint of dread. I didn't want to create the typical Pinocchio nose, so to draw attention to it I distorted the nose in a sort of abstract way.

What a nice surprise when I opened the thread. Funny, and yeah...a tad dark (right up my alley). I like the texture in your work, too. I can also imagine this one done bigger...almost lifesized...head to head and eyeball to eyeball.

Great impact.

He jumps off the picture plane. Reminds me of Caravaggio and some of Hals' work.
