    Great painting !

  • Alex ✍

    Very unique approach!

  • Matteo

    That violet halo it’s amazing!

  • Adam

    Amazing stuff, especially the owl. I think the owl is almost too good as it draws attention away from the excellent work on the man. what a wonderful problem to have. ;)  Gold ofc

  • Luca Riva

    Gold! Interesting use of color and contrast

    Indeed a magical paintjob with a lot of things going on. I love the color transitions and its variety. The amazing work on detail on every part. The only downside for me would be that nothing really draws focus. Everything single works amazingly good and demands attention on its own. As on overall look on the bust everything distracts from eachother. Just my personal perseption of course. Really looking forward where your journey takes you! Gold from my side still. Keep on happy painting!

      Thank you for your words and honest opinion my friend . I agree with you , giant white beard and white feathers on an owl taking away attention, and because of a size it’s hard to create really strong focal points here. I know sometimes to follow your vision you’re need to take some risks , so I totally understand what you’re talking about . Also a lot of small details taking away some focus , but I sometimes I think there are some things you just need to do and you need to try even if it’s breaking some rules.
      Thak you and have a good day

    There’s so much to look at in this but the Galactic beard takes the prize..

    I am less in love with this painting than the previous one (Rage). I have more difficulty reading it ... but the painting itself does not suffer from any weakness, it’s magic to understand the colors at this point !!
