So I decided to deleted my first posting of my Saladin seeing the picture was so damn bad. This photo is from the 2015 MMSI show in Chicago.. and is Much much better than anything I can do. I think I need to take a photography course... thanks for looking!

I was able finally access my computer, so I decided to upload other pictures..

    Great work buddy, shame there’s not multiple angles, I know your paint with pics mine are shocking! GOLD!

      I’m on my phone. I can only load 1 pic at a time. When I try to do more, all the pics turn the same as whatever the last photo loaded is.

    Great paint works

  • Jeff Burns "Tinman"

    So I have to say, this has been my most confusing experience as a figure painter and has raised many questions. My previous post with Saladin with a terrible picture (what I thought) had a much higher score than when I put up a better picture (what I think is better).. Why is this? Is my perseption of my own work so distorted that I think I am better than I actually am? Or is my perception of what I think a “good” photo distorted? Were people before when they voted just being generous with my older works to create an inflated score and sense of accomplishment as a painter? I by no means think myself a fantastic painter and I have still much to learn. I thought I have been improving yet the scores are telling me otherwise. Honestly I am having a difficult time with the feelings I’m experiencing..

    • Jeff Burns "Tinman"

      Are you using a camera or a phone to take pics?

    • Jeff Burns "Tinman"

      Thank you for the comment.. I’m still trying to figure out to take good pictures.

    • Laurent Aubry aka Pisco

      I use my phone with a light box ... My photos are better but sometimes the color is quite desaturated (quite grey) ... So I’ll try with a real camera ..  to enhance also the depth of the photos ...i keep trying

    • Jeff Burns "Tinman"

      Yeah a camera will have more adjustable settings. Good luck!

  • Bran

    You only paint for 4 years? I would like to have your talent in such a short time ....

    • Jeff Burns "Tinman"

      Thanks so much Bran! I’m guessing I’m closer to 6 years as a more serious painter now? I should probably update my profile.

  • eric wolfsPLUS

    I like this version i’v done too.

  • Pierre Balmette

    Great version, love the skintones nuances and the cape. I made one a while ago (in my gallery if you’d like to drop an eye) and I like yours. Gold!

  • Mariano del Olmo
