    Lightbulb Gaul

    Just an experiment on an imaginary character ....
    I love Weeks' textures and I decided to go that way with a personal speedy approach though (and a sensibly worse outcome, obviously )

    Caesar, I like this finished product... the blend of textural and brushmarks ( more of your normal style like the new one "Take that Prize" ) are just right and give a bit of a different look that I find richer ,less like an illustration done with copic markers...just my opinion. hope you try a few more in this style and see where it take you...

    Thank You, dear Gary!
    You're right! I too often skip on textural and brushwork effects because of my speedy approach and that's often a pity, as Weeks demonstrated pretty well. If an advantage exist with virtual painting, it's especially in the numberless opportunities to improve in that field. Anyway You should create, collect and order for retrieving quite a number of brushes and stickers, I'm afraid, as Master Weeks did (apart from having its astounding talent to use them most proficiently). Anyway that's another direction (among the too many for the poor, single person I am) to follow and get fun from.

    OK, dear Pat. This approach may be combined also to silhouettes I guess. The only problem is to devise and get the right texture for any stuff and part, unless You go abstract and start laying some parts to the get some inspiration, see soemthing in Your inner sight and take the painting to some sort of tasty outcome partly as an happy accident ... which is not unusual and a delight when it happens. Thank You!

    This is so very well drawn and painted Cesare. He looks a right superior chappie and one that is very fond of food and beer. Well done

    I didn't know You looked so Gaulish, dear Geoff! Thank You!

    I knew most ladies would have rather appreciated the fabric of the jacket in here ... Thank You, dear Margi.

    So a déjà-vue, dear Saphire. Thank You!

    Ja, dear Katio, he's heading to the Oktoberfest in Muenchen! Thank You!

    Molto bello! Una svolta al tuo stile devvero notevole!
    Concordo con gxhpainter e Pat. E' una strada da esplorare caro Cesare.
    Spero di vederne ancora
