I am now taking commissions for custom black velvet paintings! As you can tell, I prefer to do sci-fi characters from movies and television, but I do not limit my work to just science fiction. I am open do doing portraits of family members, even your pets, if that is your choice. I am open to just about anything, but I reserve the right to refuse to do any painting for any reason.

Mr.White your art is so amazingly detailed like the style is lke something from the 80's your  talented man and you should keep up the good work.
Sweet pictures but what about Winston Zeddemore
Awesome gallery. Loved all the wrestlers. Checkout my drawings as well.
brilliant gallery!
Just swell. Bruce, you beautifully manage what so many can't manage at all--spot-on characterization. Elsa, yum.
