    I got tired with painting animals using photos as references (and always falling short of reaching “realism”). Hence, some long needed freestyle doodling. I am using water color for bright colors, and then mix them up - on the substrate- with acrylic white and other acrylics. The interesting thing is that the effect changes overtime as the water colors mix and evaporate, leaving a certain surprise to to be had (for good and for bad).

    I have no idea what it is supposed to be, by the way. I just want to be pleased with the detail I am working on in the moment, and hope it would amount to something in the end. Pure experimentation...

    All your work that I've seen posted has such a nice organic feel to it. Really good stuff. Albeit some have been creepy, but very talented good kind of creepy. Keep up the good work

    It's great, I love to see your creations. This reminds me of an alien from John Carpenters "The Thing"

    I have spent several more hours on this one over the last few days, but to no avail. Seems like I am not getting anywhere. Anyway, you guys tell me if it’s any good (I really am not sure). If not, tell me, too; that’s why I’m asking. B5C67998-0180-4791-8F9A-438E504041C5.jpeg

    I like it. I think the colors work well and I've always liked your giger like organic style.

    It is an interesting painting.
    Because I can't see what it is. I'm going to look at other things.
    I like the colors. I like the movement in the painting. The texture is also good.
    And most importantly it grabs my attention. So yes well made.

    Thanks a lot @Jonathon and @erwin de pan for the positive encouragement! I will try to complete this piece as it appears to have some merit.

    I think I am done. I will be on a business trip for the next 7 days and will want to start working on a different piece once I am back.

    I really like how you darkened the bottom more. Really like it, but I'm torn whether I like the added stripe parts..you did a great job integrating them into the existing piece, just torn on whether I liked it as a whole better before them or not...I like the "gear tooth" like shapes added into the stripes; thought that was interesting. But overall I believe them to take away from the organic feel...

    Thanks Jonathon, fair enough. I wanted to enhance the plasticity of the object a bit, and hence the stripes. Kind of a homage to Chris Foss and other 70s science fiction illustrators. I am not sure if the execution is spot-on.

    I really, really like this. Your color choices are very appealing. I love getting lost in the depth of all the folds.
