Finally finished! This is the first time that I've entered a DA contest and I worked really hard on this design. I've not done a lot of cubism, but I went with the barn owl because it's face lends itself to cubism quite well.
I really hope I can win...I could use a new computer (my lovely current desk top is wonderful, but is from 2003...and starting to go unfortunately...).

Another figure painting from Angel Academy, done from life. In the class of "Maestro", we use a different style/method pretty much everytime time, and I love it.
Size is about 110x60 cm. Took several days to paint. I used Winsor&Newton oil paints, and some by Old Holland.
I can't believe it! Just came back home from Italy to my parents' place in Germany, and there is my mom baking cookies! Berliner Brot, something between a biscotti and a brownie, and they're quite good. Even more so because she rarely ever bakes. Ah, the wonderful Christmastime!
Thanks to ALL the friends that have supported me through my sleepless nights and gave me feedback and critiques so that I can improve it better~
The Zancoatl, was a myth carried through the generations. A massive serpent god who lives in the plane of Air, large enough to wrap itself around mountains and crush them with a force enough to shake the whole world. It travels through energy waves faster than light being almost invisible to the naked eye, only loud thunderous roars can be heard.
But one fateful day, a powerful Mage feast his ears upon this myth. Eager to view this magnificent creature, he researched and practice the magic of summoning rifts of Air. He could open small ones at first, and then bigger ones. Then, after many many years, he felt he was ready.
Climbing up on top of the highest mountain, he began casting his spell. He felt the wind around him raging with tempests and storms. Cyclones formed from the clouds. And then he saw the sky ripping apart as a bright blue light blinded him. A rift was formed before his very eyes, and something huge was coming out of it. Massive. Colossal. And the moment the mage saw what it was, he knew that the myth of the generations have been proven.....
First painting in a while! I started with little planning and no line art - just slapped down some paint and kept going, and switched to black and white halfway through, when I realised I was churning out yet another brown horse painting. As it progressed, I concentrated on getting a sense of solidity and three-dimensionality into my digital stuff. I also wanted it to have a kind of storybook illustration feel. I think it's probably the best I've done so far.

I created this to submit to dA's 11th BDay Celebration, Skribble Contest. [link]
The idea is there are 2 lines and one shape. Whatever you create has to contain all three 'skribbles', they can't be altered or re-configured in anyway, and you have to be able to see them in the finished product. (can you find them?). The lines screamed Kimono....
