Luka with Flowers by driftwoodwolf Luka with Flowers by driftwoodwolf
For my final in a basic painting class I took last quarter, I chose to recreate a Klimt painting... with my character, because man I would not have had the motivation to finish otherwise :'D

Lots of issues with this, one of which is the atrocious photo, but ah well. Also, I haven't done an acrylic painting like this (it's 18x24 inches) since high school...

I used some metallic paints too, but you can't really see it here. Check out how the gold and silver looks with additional shots on Tumblr: driftwoodwolf.tumblr.com/post/…

Whoa, this is incredible! I am really into the style that you used. For me, the most impressive feat in this piece is how perfectly you discern between what needs detail and what does not. The flowers in the background: rough smudges of color. The face and hands: perfectly lined and shaded. Wow wow wow wow. I also love that the lines on the hands are done in blue. There's something magical to that which makes the whole piece feel ethereal. bravo, and can't wait to check out your other works!

Mmmm, it's always nice to see tributes to one of my favorite artists of all time. 
Even better when those tributes are done beautifully, such as this one :lovely:
