Hi ...Dear ... Tragic-Memory ...!!! Your Fantastic Art work ... What's it like? is featured in Action-Portraits...!!! if you don't mind........................................ best regards.....................You're most welcome in Action-Portraits...!!!
Astonishing, Beautiful, Gorgeous, Amazing .. They all just don't seem to fit. I think I am in love with the smaller details here they are definitely what make this beautiful. The make-up coloration with the red in the angel and white on the devil. The tail wrapped around the angels shoe. Even the use of lights and darks in the background; the tattoos in amongst their gently rough appearance look elegant and precise.

the anatomy in your characters is already very particular and marks your style, I like it, I also tend to do strange looking anatomy, somehow when I see art with distorted anatomy I feel so very home, can I ask you why is it that you draw the anatomy like that? do you look forward to someday drawing a more realistic approach to anatomy?
I draw my anatomy like this, I think, because of earlier influences, like the cartoons I watched. I also think I draw an exaggerated version of my own body..I have a small waist with big hips..and a lot of my characters seem to have the same. The elongated legs and arms are for aesthetics I suppose, it's just how my pen flows and I end the line where it feels right to the flow of the piece. I think it looks better to my own eyes (though in real life may freak me out). I don't really have an interest in drawing normal proportions long term (though practicing on it never hurts), simply because with photography and photoshop being today's favourite combo, anyone can snap a picture of a proportioned human and put it in a weird setting, and make it look like a painting..but I can create the human in any form and proportion that I would like, and totally defy physics..without a model. I would however like to try my hand at more realistic faces..I want to make different expressions on my characters. I want to explore more settings and backgrounds too.

we have similar goals concerning to our art, I also want to try different expressions for my characters, sometimes I draw their faces with a very neutral look, just some times their eyes express sadness or sorrow and that's o.k but I would like to do some happy face at some point of life
hands are also a problem for me, just about now I am working on a painting where I have tried the hardest to do more realistic hands and it's a drag, I can only use my own hands for posing lol that's easier than finding photos on the internet with the exact pose you are looking for
BACKGROUNDS, I have terrible problems for those, wow, have you ever gotten any tutoring on painting or studied anything art related?
I have a little book on drawing fantasy characters like mermaids and fairies, it ha a pretty good hand diagram. I would try to find a line skeleton of one and jot that down to reference...take pictures of your own so you can sit and study it without getting a hand cramp..that is also what I do with my faces, sometimes I will have to take a picture of myself in a pose or with a head angle so I can see where everything falls. I have taken art classes in high school,one instructional the others were just a period where my friend and I would get to paint what we wanted how we wanted with little "how to" guidance. Everything else has been self taught and observational learning. I find with the backgrounds..that I get bored with them..I don't want to make this haunting looking character and then stick a couch or a tree behind her..half the time i find I don't want a setting, I just need some texture.. Right now I am practicing at drawing objects, but tweaking them..like how would I make this bed look more interesting..and skew it's shape, or how would I make this tree look crazier and what would it's fruit look like? and create from there.
I can because it is on my screen, just not on the wacom..its no differnt than clicking and using a mouse...the hold and control are whats different. it makes it easier. just takes some hand eye cooridnation
The colors become really interesting in the work. The vermillion forked tail femme fatale and her pure as the driven snow halo wearing playmate seem to be each, in their own way, deeply contemplating that ever seductive suspicion that perhaps the grass is greener on the others side.
Anyways. I find this intriguing. I'm curious as to your interpretation. It doesn't seem as clearly detailed or refined as your usual pieces. But that hardly detracts from how inventive and lovely it is. It almost feels to me like two sides of the same coin. One intertwined with the other, as if one could not be without its contemporary opposite. Keep up the amazing work, Jamie.
