Once again, thank you my very generous friend for your kind words and encouragement! :heart: I kind of wish this had more of a "watercolor" feel to it, because I went really opaque with the paint. As I told you, I'm not very good with loose mediums like you are. :)

hahaha I eat your dust, Captain there's no point hiding it :D
It's true that it doesn't quite have the classic "watercolour effect", but it's awsome anyway..it's very powerful..and at the end is the result that matters..no? you couldn't have achieved such a strong impact if you would have done it in the classic watercolours way :D

Heeeey! I resent that remark. ;P I don't like placing myself above people. Just because you do things a different way, does not make one better than the other. The only thing that separates me from you right now is a level of experience, and the only reason I have that is because my school crammed like 10 years of art training and experience into 3. You're how old (not to be rude or anything)? You'll get there with more time and experimenting. What matters is that I see you have the potential to really soar with your artwork. Keep at it, and don't let yourself get discouraged.
I understand, and I appreciate what you're saying. I just wish I had been more bold and tried to go outside of my comfort zone with this one.

I'm almost your age...I've turned 20 few weeks ago..that school keep getting more and more interesting everytime you mention it..it's such a shame there is no such a thing here...it's tough, though, isn't it? did you start already "good" at drawing or did you get good at school?

Oh, okay. Keep at it! I was about 20 when I started at The Kubert School, and I think you're a lot better than when I started. You certainly have a better head on you for design and color (which I knew nothing of), and you clearly know enough about drawing faces to the point where you can exaggerate them correctly. You will undoubtedly get a lot better. Just keep at it and never think you're done learning. :)

The "I have not felt this presence since... (obiwan)" scene came to mind immediately looking at this piece :)

Really nice work, I love the effect of the watercolours and the bluish tint!
