View Full Version : Old Friends (Updated)

I have updated this doing a "refined version." I hope I haven't ruined it because that's always a danger. I just made the characters a little less rough.

Sort of a fantasy thing of a different world where old friends have a chance meeting on an old path in the woods and where everything is really as it is here more or less.

First I brought in one of my older paintings in on a layer, "Better days" it was called and turned it upside down and mashed it up and lot's of other stuff. Then I drew 3 light circles for heads and took it from there.
Using mostly Oil brush. Greatly thinned oils with insta dry turned on. Many, many layers at times. Hope you like it.
