Re: The Gangsters

I am a bit late too the party.....sorry! But I really wanted to comment nonetheless -so here goes -

WOW!! Double time!!! I think you have certainly achieved each dogs individuality -their faces are phenomenal -I would just love to be able to see some detail of all that work, is that possible? They have such character and I can see the detail in their faces even though its not close-up, its very tantalising

I am in awe of your talent .

Re: The Gangsters

Here is a detail shot. It has a dust line from the scan I have not fixed yet.

Re: The Gangsters

Great piece. Looks like a family portrait. Are they related?

Re: The Gangsters

This really has amazing impact so to learn that close- up the pencil is really quite delicate on their faces is a revelation too me .
I can really see the work that you put into their fur aswell it looks so soft and luxuriant.
Thank you so much for providing a close-up and don't worry about the dust, your piece would still be stunning even if the glass on the scanner had mud smeared on it... (A slight exaggeration but you catch my drift .

Re: The Gangsters

The dogs are not related, they are owned buy one person. These do guard the family

Re: The Gangsters

Thanks also for the closeup. I do think making a painting smaller does make it look "better" somehow (well in least on some of my paintings it does!), but now I have seen the closeup I must say it's great small or large.

I really like the softness you have achieved in this. I am not really soft, low colour saturation artist myself but I am really attracted to this. I might give this look a go one day!
