Re: Wolf portrait in pastels (WIP)
gorgeous pastel painting! did u post this to the soft pastel forums at all? if you haven't you definitely should, I'm sure everyone over there would love to assess this bad boy. the wolf almost looks "cute" to me, for some reason... i wonder why... i think it has something to do with its snout. It's snout makes it look cute.. or, whatever cute looks like to my subconscious mind, lol. the tiger, on the other hand, that tiger looks so majestic. they're both amazing, to me. Love em both.
and i am so so sooo glad to see someone creating fine art with ONLY soft/dry pastels that many pastel snobs would refer to as "under painting pastels" lol. screw that. i am sooo happy to see that you've made two amazing paintings, and your even entered them into a pastel contest, and one of them was accepted, and they were created with REMBRANDTS, and CONTE crayons!! that makes me giddy, with a little tickle in my chest/stomach, to see that you're doing some seriously amazing and awesome work with pastels that many would call "hard" ........ppffffffttttt... hard? don't tell me that rems are too hard, because they aren't. Rembrandts are soft enough to be the top layer, over conte crayons. Nupastels are soft enough to go over conte crayons too. rems and Nupastels are both soft pastels capable of creating entire pastel painting. period! period!! haha.
you can do an entire painting with rems or nus, and it can come out great. end.
this came out really great bro. really great. and the tiger is awesome too bud. cool. cool paintings. i like your choice of pastel brands, haha. keep it up.
