    Something different but old.....

    Hi you all !! I have been away for some time due to much things that happened this summer. But I am trying to make a book of my art, more for myself....and as I told my own story about my drawinghistory, I remembered that I did make paintings like this when I was about 20 years old. My parents had only one book on the shelve from an artist: Esscher.
    Later when I left to go live in my own house I got some kind of inspiration out of that book which I took with me. I spend hours and hours looking at that book when I was young. I still have it somewhere.....

    So here is a reproduction from that period made with ArtRage. I have no idea where the originals are..... I hope you like it.

    Not just I like it, very much I like it. Extremely good job. Very labor intensive. How long did it take?

    A Moebius horse I guess! An astounding creativity here under Enscher inspiration. Very well executed too.

    Thanks for this great welcome back !! Three weeks ago my laptop crashed also so I had to find a way to get my data back and had to find my registrationcode for ArtRage again including my password for this forum. And buying a new one with 4 GB Ram instead of 1 which works much better and faster. And then install evrything all over again including updates. This after all other disasters from this summer.....house and garden overflooded, my litlle Westy who died, the new Westypuppy we got, my father's two big operations and the battle for the insurance to pay our damages, a sick horse....But everything worked out fine for now exept the battle of the insurancecompany's which will probably take a year. But winter is coming which means I have a lot more sparetime...

    This painting took me about 15 hours I think. Half way I realized there was a more easy way to do this by painting the whole horse first and then erase out the parts to make the backside. But i did'nt.
    24 years ago I painted this with white wallpaint on black paper and then made the details with a pencil afterwards....haha.

    Thanks for the great compliments, I still do not see myself as having a talent but it is so nice to hear.
    Now I am going to think back in the past to try and remember what else I did back then and reproduce that in Artrage....It is fun !
