The little black strap...

Liepke's show was hot as hell, as one could have imagined... i plan to go back there and take more pictures as there were too many people on the opening night. Please, do your eyes a favor and go feast on these... He even signed my book~ ^o^

and here's my sunday painting. i really messed up the values on this one; the red light threw me off completely~ darn it.

Shelly. I just looked down your blog. Your digital painting is on a completely different level then mine: I love it! I particularly love the pirate one.

Thanks for the heads up, I'm planning on getting to the show this week. Great that they let you take pictures.

Hey, thanks again for showing me that Liepke book!

Red light like that is super hard to paint. It just drowns out everything you normally expect to see in a head.

thanks for the amazing liepke pics, im jealous!!! I know what you mean about the light, anytime I have to break out my color theory for goofy light it hurts...ha

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net( no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet( in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.

Ohhhh my gooood shelly!! Good job! I'm so mad I've missed previous exibits here on the east coast, but these photos are SO juicy and rich and show such detail that you'll never find anywhere else on line. You gotta take some more... for us :-P Thanx again for these!

Holy Smokes those are good pics! Those paintings look awesome up close! Man I love how he paints. Nice portrait by the way. Your drawing/structure in these just keeps getting better.

Scott Flanders said...

Shelly I think you are a babe... seriously though, you inspire me. You and I should be art friends. Come say hi.

mmm you mean those cooler color parts
on his face (shadow side),
that would be the only thing
that looks off to me, but the rest
including the head structure is awesome, i like
the hair volume too.
Keep up the great work dude :-D

Wow, thanks for posting those Liepke shots. So great! It's so hard to find decent pic of his on the web.

J. Fiorino said...

Wow nice work! I love the closeup of the girl's face (laying sideways looking towards the floor). Keep it up!

wow - that cheered me up !
Thanks for those .

I like your painting also - pretty succesful if you ask me . It's amazing how we all dislike our own paintings so quickly .

Cheers .
