Rooaaar! I can't remember hearing Neptune/Poseidon roaring like that, before, though? :)

He only roars above the water. Otherwise he's just blowing bubbles again. :)

If you’ve done it before Val I don’t remember it, besides if this is the result you get painting things multiple times I’m gonna have to try it.

I took my time on this one as I’m hoping to steal a little space on my wife’s stand at one of her Christmas shows (if it goes ahead) for some prints and some commissions.





No smudge tool was harmed in the making of this image.

I think this one is absolutely lovely and among the best I can recall seeing by you, Atto!
I *might* add a bit more colour to the background if I were you (towards blue-green maybe?) or make it a smidgen paler at the top, with a gradient towards the darker base (it makes me think a bit of old faded photographs).

That looks really good, especially the hands, as usual. :P
Also the flowers a very convincing too. Those petals look lovely and touchably soft.

The only thing I'd consider adding is a touch of specular highlights in the brighter areas of the face to suggest a bit of sparkle and texture to the skin. Nothing too much, just literally a couple of tiny dots of white on the tip and edge of the nose etc.

It's definitely one of the most polished pictures you've done and the edges are very well controlled, the way that arm on the right almost disappears into the background is beautifully subtle. If you do tweak the background colours then try to keep that effect. :)

After playing Ark late last night I foolishly tried to paint an even later picture before bed. *yawn*
And it's another of those weird egg babies. (I really DO paint the same pictures over and over again.)



Yes, yes, I know the bottom hand has absolutely no definition or detail to it but I was so late and tired that I just HAD to stop somewhere and I find that a hand is always the best place to stop. :P

well maybe the other hand makes up for t :) It looks very convincing to me!

Well if it isn't the good old orangey-blue colour-me-do. Again. :dry:
