Wayyyyyyy out of the comfort zone on this one in both medium and subject! Oil pastel on Mi-Tientes (smooth side).

I like this, Digi. It has a sort of savagery about it that suits the subject. Good work!

Great job! Like the shading of the skull and the coloring you've done with it.

I like your bold approach to this one. Its good to venture out of the zone sometimes - and this was one of the good one! Great use of colour and assertive strokes. Love it.

Digi, you took an intense image and made it even more intense!! Love the reds you added..gives the feeling of violence that perhaps this wolf did suffer..I also like that this made you venture out of your comfort zone. I always feel thats what these things are about:)

glad you took a walk on the wild side (out the comfort zone)
I think this a great work
free strokes, vibrant hues, nice placement
the green is really alive, red almost looking like rose petals
honoring the dead, resting skull
I find your color choices very moving for this piece
and the application (especially in the grass) exciting

Digistyle, I think you summed up what these FND's are about, leaving our comfort zones!

These colors are so intense, and yet they work so well with the cool, smooth skull. I love the blends on the skull, it really portrays the curve and the light.

The deep reds really dramatize the sharp, dangerous teeth too.

Love it!

I thought the reds looked rose-petal-ish, too. The background lines bring action to this lifeless scene.

This is really great digi. I love the colour so vibrant and fresh ...you've given a bit of life to a morbid object:! Glad you came out of your comfort zone and can't wait to see what you do next with those oil pastels:)

Hey if we never venture out of our comfort zones - we would never get anywhere! ;)

Glad you ventured - very nice!

Thanks, everyone! I like the oil pastels, though they usually frustrate me! This was a good image to use them on. I had to focus on the larger shapes and not worry so much about the detail. Looking forward to seeing everyone's work at the next event!
