Had my first "art show" on a public bath house. You gotta start somewhere :)
BUt it was a lot of fun, lots of feedback and a bunch of interest even though none were sold, guess I had too high prices for that audience.

Anyways, got my first commission work from a young lady who saw my paintings. I made a Youtube video of it, what do you think?

Like the initial sketch. Like the process you go through when painting and the result. Got to hate birds by the end. Trying to figure out how to video my works in pen. Probably more like you drawing your initial sketch. Grandaddyearl

Haha, Thank you for the feedback Earl,
I know, I'm sorry. I need to find copyright free ambient music for the Youtube stuff, I never ever listen to music when I work so that whole part of life is unknown to me.

I love the effect you applied to this piece . Very modern traditional ,you are on the right track , you are creating your own style which makes a good artist . Remember , it takes a long time to get people to follow your work , never think you over price your work , this is not a yard sale , put your price on the pieces as fair and as you gain customers your price will naturally increase . Comments from a old artist that learned the hard way . Keep going you are doing GREAT :D :D :D

Hi! Totokasa! Your artwork and your profile are impressive! You’re very talented popular! Hope that you can stay with the brush painting, I said that because I can see recently so many artists rush to the AI style art for being popular. I draw with iPad, although that is a little bit off from the traditional style, but at least, I have to get through a lot of drawing on paper before I can feel comfortable by with iPad to drawing. Making big money and being success are the dream of every artist, but style style is also important if you want be a great artist like Leonando Da Vinci. Welcome to join us in the Dashboard!
