Hello again

I used to be really active on here but I wandered away for awhile. I think I'm going to stick around again. I thought my time away warranted another intro of sorts.

Re: latest works

This is a lovely piece. I do like the reflections a lot, very interesting overall.

Re: Website as of now

Could you post a link to your site, I'd love to see what you have. Since I last posted here I think I've done some major editing again. I completely decided against adding the store link. Right now I just have prices listed on my website, so far I'm not getting any luck with that at all. All my Etsy...

Re: Welcome back!

I just came back to the site after taking a break, and everything is different. It looks really nice and clean though. I like it. :D

Re: Price vs. "Price"

I'm also struggling with pricing. I was told that some of the prices on my larger work were too low, so I raised them but now I worry that I went to high. I've asked for opinions on another board and the only prices anyone can say is reasonable is the price for one of my smaller pieces that I'm alre...

Re: Bua Loi, Love (maybe title)

For me it's just another way of sketching. I test an idea and if it works then I execute it in the actually work. If not I haven't wasted paper or materials, and I definitely haven't ruined anything I've spent the past 6 months on.

Re: Bua Loi, Love (maybe title)

Oh I don't actually use the photoshop in the final the piece other than cropping and trying to get the colors more true to life. I have used photoshop in the middle of the process for testing compositions and backgrounds. With "Angelic" I tested the black background and the composition in ...

Re: Bua Loi, Love (maybe title)

I'm not rushing. I just always want everything to look perfect and when I did the drawing I was forced to stop because I was destroying the paper. Now with the paint I can go back over it many more times, which I am loving. And another thing for me not rushing I was hoping to be done by September 1 ...

Re: Bua Loi, Love (maybe title)

WC is Wet Canvas, and nothing was too horrible (they were actually nice), just pointing out some serious issues with placement (nose and mouth). The eyes have been bothering me a bit too I'll have to remeasure those out when I work tonight. I've been struggling with getting everything darker, it's j...

Re: Bua Loi, Love (maybe title)

Go ahead and share, it can't be worse than what I've heard on WC (I posted there too). Also just about everything on there is a second or third layer and might even change again before I'm done.
