Artwork: The Watcher

(nov 2008)

As has become usual I have two versions – the original :

watcher blue big

and the one I colored JUST to make wallpaper with and now *almost* like better *points down to the bottom of blog*.

watcher red big

I am pretty happy with both versions, though there are a lot of textures in there that no one will ever notice at the small size. ALL the wood has wood grain on it courtesy of a spiffy brush and the wall has two layers of different colored sponge marble effect to give it depth. Yep, you can’t see it. But even though you can’t REALLY see it, you can because it makes a very, very subtle difference that you DO pick up on subconsciously and it adds a certain depth. Yes, this makes the picture take twice as long to do (This took me three days – probably nine hours or so total just to color). but that’s the main secret to art work – time and patience. (this is why I no longer do artwork book covers. Hours and hours of work for $45…. Makes no sense)

Fav song of the moment – “Gessekai “– Buck-Tick

    Wow! There’s a LOT of detail. The wood grain on the floor & bed. And yes, now that you mention it, I can see it on the walls. But besides all that, both are just really beautiful! I love the feathers…from the guy, right? 🙂

    Sensual, just like your writing.
