This is the first project I've felt even approaches being worthy of uploading to Putty&Paint;, so I thought I'd create an account and give it a go.

It's by no means perfect but I really enjoyed painting it. The organic forms of this figure are just great and allow a lot of texture to be painted on top.

I've included photos on a couple of different backdrops. I think the orange works well too.

I'd love your thoughts!

      Thanks Josh, I appreciate the comment. When I was painting this, it was almost like the figure itself was speaking to me.

      Thanks so much Seyni, that’s very kind of you. The artwork certainly did inspire me a lot, and the figure itself just seemed to guide my brush as I was painting.
