    20171126_171649.jpg got some time today and started the top waves of the water. This is one of those where I think it's not as good as what I'm going for, but my wife absolutely loves it so I left it alone cuz I thinks it's just me over critical of my own work

    20171231_213311.jpg since I finished the chris cornell drawing for my wife for Christmas, figured I'd get back to this commision piece. Added more layers to the chain and started laying base colors on the column. Using mainly hairy brushes for now but will use the airbrush to help shadow and texture with. At least that's the plan. The hardest part will be painting the under water look to everything once it's all painted. Hope it comes out looking ok

    Thx. Super nervous now though. Here soon gonna try to somehow make her skin look okay. Still not even sure what exact look I'm going for with it just gonna start laying down some dark under tones in prolly purple maybe. Then mix up some pinkish tones to highlight...then again maybe not...so many choices

    I love the depth of the chain. This piece is coming together really well.
