New stuff, new stuff!

First off, I have FINISHED "Queen of Bones"!! It turned out glorious, I love it I love it! Click below to see her........

It's even prettier in "real life" - very subtle tones and detail....

Oh yes - the commission I was working on the other day - I got the "okay" from the customer to sell prints, so here goes......

And then I have all kinds of prints for my new Alice painting.......

Ooh, spooky! I love the chilly feeling the skeleton dragon gives me. And I like her expression-- she seems even more otherworldly. A little bit like Jadis when she was in Charn...

Ha! I actually thought about her a couple of days ago - perhaps inspiration? The Magician's Nephew has always been my favourite CS Lewis book!

Isn't he cute? Here they call them "Lop Eared" bunnies. The tattoo on the girl's arm means "dragon" and the one on her hip means "rabbit".

Wow, great new painting! I love her eyes, but what I like most is how chilly she looks in her skin tones but that you still put warmth into the knees, fingers etc. Great work!

Oh the Queen of bones has a very evil face.
She probably doesn't have many friends! lol I would be too scared of her.
The detail is lovely, once again, well done.

OooooooH...that is intense.
definitely a masterpiece.
I wish I was brave enough to put color down on some of mine...the color is what really brings it to life.
It's really stunning!!
Great work!

Thank you very much!

About 8 years ago I worked almost completely monochromatically, but then I started delving into colour more, and I find it can be a lot more expressive.

I love her!! The bone dragon is so cool and I love the way her thin angular face mimics the bones!

Doh!! I forgot to look at the other one before commenting! Back to look at the other...

She is my new favorite! Even if I can't get the original I will have to get a large print! You need to do more bone queen paintings- you know a whole series *lol*.

Lol, "Queen of Bones #452" - I can picture it now! ;)

Well, I was actually thinking about painting some other scary Queen like regal ladies associated with other materials.......

Ok, the copper dragon is so beautiful! I love everything, the costume, the subtle colors of the background, and of course the girl is cute and pretty, but I think I love the bunny best of all!! He looks so ferocious for such a little bunny (and I've known ferocious bunnies in real life)! I'm sure the buyer is just jumping for joy!

Aw! Hehe, thank you Neva! The tattoo on her hip means "Rabbit" and the one on her arm means "Dragon".

=) I think that they were very happy with the painting - they didn't even ask for revisions, and that's always a good sign, hehe!

Thank you Dawn!!!! I almost made the whole background made entirely of tiny bones, but then I decided to put a big Bone Dragon there instead - I think that was the better way to go =)
