Re: African Future FINISHED

Patrick thank you! For posting all your wip pics, I cannot thank you enough. I learn so much from other artists processes.

And, this finished piece is really compelling. Those eyes!

Re: African Future FINISHED

Patrick, I'm not sure which I like more, your wildlife or portraits! I've decided to look at this forum a bit, I have done a few portraits, but I'd like to get into I more. Anyways, thank you so much for sharing! Love the colors and the eyes are incredible!

Re: African Future FINISHED

Hi guys, thanks so much for the great compliments. You are very kind.

A bit of news, this piece has just been featured in an article I got published in Australian Artist Magazine. Eight pages and a really great 'advert' for my art since they included other images than the WIP I did. I also got a small piece of the cover which was a nice surprise. The printing quality is brilliant. I have to say they do a good job so I'm happy. Here are the pages (small resolution so I don't muck around with their copyright)

If you are in Australia, it's out now.
