Re: Demon

Maybe it is slightly too abstract. Because you named it "Demon" I looked for some kind of face, and eventually was able to discern one. Without the title, I might not have seen the face. Perhaps a little brightness in the eyes would make the viewer pick them out quickly; once those two reference points are distinguished, the rest follows.

Re: Demon

well, i'm not getting 'demon' out of it ... perhaps in real life viewing i might ... does it have eye caverns? i cannot tell and that's truly one of the disadvantages of online viewing.

post details if you're able

Re: Demon

Itís a great painting it does not need the title as itís clearly a portrait with features.
Let people work when viewing it and avoid the obvious certainty.

Tipo.

On second look, I think that's right. I originally looked at it on a handheld device, which shrinks the image and makes details more obscure. Now that I'm seeing it on a regular computer monitor, the structure of the image is much more readily ascertained. No need for enhancement.

Side note: Good that you used a light, neutral background, instead of filling the whole canvas with details.
