Alexander by SilentKW
I am finally finished :) Sadly, the photo I took does not do the painting justice, but I will probably retake it in a better lighted environment.
This is for a competition that I will be entering in the new year, but I wanted to start it early to make sure I had enough time (and just in case I screwed up I had time to start another one).
It is my first real oil paint portrait and it took me about a month or so.
And thank you for looking as well

Time: 47 hours
Medium: Oil on canvas
Model: Alexander

Another pet portrait in the works, this time it's a commission for an old co-worker of mine. The final portrait will be of both her dogs, but this is the first of the two. Unfortunately the photos she provided me weren't the best quality, so I'm kind of having to wing it a little bit, but so far it's looking pretty good :)

Still have to finish the chest, beard, and hair, and then just the background.

This is a painting I started last week. It will be for a portrait competition that I'll be entering in the new year. I'm a little nervous as I've never done a portrait in oil paint before so this should be interesting ;)
I work on it a bit every day while I'm also doing commissions.
My lovely boyfriend was nice enough to pose for me. I'm still building up the layers of skintones, and it makes me want to cry.

About 10 hrs worth of work so far
My Sheba by SilentKW
My Sheba
"Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes!" -Theophile Gautier

I have finally completed my drawing of Sheba. It took me too many hours to remember and through too many pencils. I would've done her memory a great disservice had I done any less.

It's been 2 years last week since her passing, and I still cry sometimes. I still look for her in all the places she would be, still drop my hand beside me, expecting her to be there.
She was my dog, my best friend.

This is done in Prisma coloured pencils


Well I've been working on a few different pieces of art for the last 2 weeks or so; getting back in the art groove has been somewhat tough, but I'm getting there. It has paid off though, after finishing my Dr. Turner drawing, I posted it on twitter and Stephen McGann (the actor who plays him) responded and told me that it was "Brilliant!", so, that made my day, week, life lol

Anyways, I have been quite frustrated recently though, I've been asking around my city at tattoo shops, and I'm trying to find someone that would be willing to teach me....but no one will :( They all said my artwork is amazing, but they can't/won't teach me. I feel like, what the hell, what do I do? To hell with them, I'll find some other way to learn then. Right now I'm currently without a job, so I'm doing commissions and entering art competitions, which is great, but not THE best you know?

So if anyone is interested at all in any artwork, feel free to ask. I apologize to anyone who requested some while I was, um, on hiatus :(

I am glad I decided to go on dA today - so glad you are feeling better! And that I have a way to connect with you again! Unless you've moved to a different house, we are still within walking distance of each other! Let me know if you ever want to hang out. :)

that's awesome! I believe sometimes we have heavy trials in life, not necessarily because we need them, but because we are often moved into a position where we can later help pull others to higher ground who may be going through similar situations...and trust me, nobody will know more about how to help that individual, than one who has traveled the road herself and came out on top. Good to know there are people in the world like you. :)
