Sophisticated, humorous and a technical tour de force. Bravo!

Re: 'My Own Personal Minions', a new WIP

Looks great Alan. I completely understand the feeling of not being satisfied, I am the same way with everything I do doesnít matter if itís a painting or a fishing rod that Iíve built. I see every flaw and weak spot in it, nobody else can see it but I always know itís there. Personally I think what youíve done is fantastic. Hope to see a new WIP from you soon, I always learn a ton from your posts.

Hey Alan,

I'm on and off this forum but still can't believe that I missed this one... Stunning work... just speechless knowing amount of care and patience required.

My hat's off to you buddy.

All the best.

Zoran

Re: 'My Own Personal Minions', a new WIP

I love the sense of depth between the foreground and background.

Re: 'My Own Personal Minions', a new WIP

scmelik,
Thanks for the praise, glad you can relate to never being satisfied with your work. Don't know what to do for my new painting, but be assured I will be posting it as a WIP thread.

Zoran,
Thanks for stopping by my friend! Love your work, hope to see some new stuff soon!

maryinasia,
Thank you for the kind words - getting the right sense of depth is very important.

I can't really add anything that hasn't been said already, but anyway - fantastic work! I don't know what I admire most - your paint handling skills or your work ethic. Two years, wow!

Thank you so much Ola, very high praise coming from you - the work on your website is spectacular! Someday I'll try a portrait in your style, but I'm too afraid to screw it up right now.

Got a job traveling full time. Haven't had time for anything for about a year. Was thinking of doing a portrait old school maybe this week.
