He's recently died of thirst and thats why he's not decaying yet?
Also the top inch or so of orange is missing. that's where a title & author would go if this were a book cover.
Between the constantly re-doing of things that should be finished and ignoring this painting for weeks I have never spent quite so much time on any one thing and it's hardly done yet! I really hope to have this finished before my senior showcase show. I'm quite proud or it so far. I really miss doing digital paintings, traditional media can be like walking through mud to get to a final There's so much between idea and actually getting to start work on a piece. Digital seems to cut out so much measuring, gessoing, projecting, paint mixing, needing to go to the store to buy one more pencil/brush/paint/thing, and cleaning off all my brushes.
Speaking of which here is another Acrylic and pencil that went okay, but it was more of a learning experience than something I'd frame.
