Re: Non-Trek - A Present for Mom

I think this is pretty much final. For the record, I would say that feathers are kind of interesting to paint, but I wouldn't go so far as to call them fun.



And finally, an enlarged view of some of the finer details:



Now all I gotta do is somehow get it printed and framed in time for Christmas. Wish me luck!

Re: Non-Trek - A Present for Mom

Fantastically well done sir. Bravo. The wings look rather ethereal, as if they have more in common with the clouds than her more substantial human form. I don't know if it is intentional but an excellent result either way.

Clearly a labor of love.

Well, now that Christmas has come and gone, one has to ask "How did you Mom like her one-of-a-kind present?"

Re: Non-Trek - A Present for Mom

She loved it. However, the canvas print I had done came out with the colors rather muted and they positioned it too low on the stretcher boards, so I'm probably going to have it redone.

If you can post a picture of the finished product I'm sure everyone would love to see it. I'm glad your Mom liked it!

Re: Non-Trek - A Present for Mom

Hey Vektor, I was just looking at your avatar pic and the art here. You didn't pull a "Da Vinci" and feminize your face for this did you?

Re: Non-Trek - A Present for Mom

Well, not consciously. I would give the idea no credence at all except you're the second person to ask if I had done that. Personally, I don't see a resemblance.
