I just got my Tablet this week. First time user, long time admirerer LOL. this is very cool!! I love the stark red against the cooler hues. So how do you like it so far? Which tablet did you get? I got the Intuos4 Medium. I will hopefully post something soon.

I am normally not into this type of artwork, but this I like! The eyes MAKE IT!

I like it too. Very bold. And the eyes are certainly alive!

I really dig the colors! So warm, yet cold mixed together. Very nice.

There is NOTHING wrong with digital art. This looks great-very painterly. Great transparency with the colors.

Very nice, Ken. You realize once you've crossed to the dark side there is no turning back.:)

Your watercolor approach reminds me of Charles Reid's figure paintings. Your's are much bolder, but I've always liked the look.

thanks for all the nice comments.

every time you work in digital art, you want to go back to traditional in some way, but you have to keep struggling thru. it takes so long at first just to change brush tips. you have to think about so many different mechanics that don't come naturally like drawing with a real pencil or paint brush.

it gets easier, but it is a steep learning curve, not an easy way to make art. you have to learn the software, inside and out. so many people think digital art is just popping in a photo and apply a couple of filters.

most give it up, as i have so many times in the past. good luck to all who stay with it! ken

Wow! I really like this. I can only echo what others have said. I think you are right about everytime you work in digital art, you want to go back to traditional in some way (at least for me anyway). Maybe it is a tactile connection (or disconnection) of sorts? After years of computer graphics, I just recently got back into doing pen and ink drawings after 19 years not drawing.
