  1. What, you think you're some sort of big man making 3 posts in 4 days???

    It looks really good, I especially like how the foliage and shadows come together to form a sort of skull face in front of the old man. What it the actual story here?

  2. thanks for the comment . The painting is for my thesis .It is about a trip my grandmother and i went on down into a ravine that my grandfather and her took alot of pride in . It was a very clean and clear space but when my grandfather got sick the ravine became overgrown with plant life and what you see in the painting is what is left . And its funny that you see a skull in the painting , i definitely didn't mean to put it in there but the painting is definitely about mortality.

  4. Hah, I would say, in the final piece, make the sleeves less baggy, cause its reading a bit like a wizard robe/wand. Now that might just be me seeing what I want to see, but maybe not. I think the bagginess of the sleeves is the culprit.
