This one was actually my first acrylic painting. I'm not as fond of the subject matter as I once was, since I discovered more amazing Elves in the Silmarillion soon after, but I still love the background. I did a lot of details with metallic paint, so I put little lense flares to indicate the shininess not to be cheap, hahah. It's Haldir and Legolas in LotR, by the bye.
I really enjoy this piece, it is very hard to use acrylic paints they dry much quicker than oils and they don't blend easily. You did a great job though I really like the hair and the shadows on Legolas's(?) shirt.
Yes, the one on the right is Legolas, lol. I prefer acrylcis because they dry faster, lol-- not a very pacient person I really like your quotes, too, by the bye, hehe ^^
That is true they do dry quicker and they are brighter than oils but yeah I still perfer oils. Have you ever tried painting coulds with acrylic? It is so annoying, It's like a Grrr and an Argh for me. Whelp you're going on my watch list!
Haha, thanks ^^ But yes, clouds are..... ugh in acrylic. i usually mix and match my paints anyways. I always use water colors to soften my acrylics, and I've... attempted oils a few times, ha. I'm no good I really must go check out your section now O.o I've been rushing all day!
Oh well I hope you enjoy what you see, I'll be putting up an oil painting soon...My drawing is better than my painting, I haven't done much painting. So I kind of envy those who can paint, like you.
Yeah Lord od the ring stuff.. Legolas isn't it ---->
Nice Drawing ^^
