Mr. Jenkins' Nephew--andwips by genaminna Mr. Jenkins' Nephew--andwips by genaminna
I was probably the only person up on Christmas Eve, freaking WORKING all night. |O (okay, probably not the *only* one, but damnn) >o>;;;;

I had this commission due for Mr. Jenkins (again, hehe) for his sister, for Christmas. This was probably the fastest darn painting I've ever done... like 4 1/2 days or something. :faint: I wish it could have been more detailed, but most of the details, I had to make up, myself, because the picture he gave me to reference from was soooo small. >o< Oh well~ ^^;

This person, his nephew, died at only age 25. :( So, they were pitching in to give this to his mother for Christmas. Hope they liked it. :heart:

Guys, take care of yourselves!
Hope you had a nice holiday!

And... comment like I'm not going to comment back! ^^; pretend... ^^; In case it takes me a while, I'm just saying...
Okay, see yas! :) :sprint: *headache* @_@

P.S.-- I added the works in progresses to show you the steps to get to the end. Oh boy, I messed up at times, lol. But, the important thing is to not give up! Fix your mistakes and movvvee onn!! Because life will just move on without you! :shakefist: Okay? :) :hug: (Hopefully I will get even faster where I won't make so many mistakes! ^^; I'm still learning too! XD ^^; ) Ugh, all the shiny parts... D:...

Wow I think you did a amazing job with the limited reference and it seems very recognizeable. Even without wondering.

:wow: That is insanly brillient! =D

The details of your brush strokes in this piece is flawlessly done :)

Absalutely stunning! :aww:

Don't worry, Mr Jenkins' nephew's mother will defiantly love this painting. :aww: Think of it as a great tribute. :)

And you took 4 and a half days to paint this piece? I'm amazed at the results, and how it turns out for such a short time! ^^

Overall, this is brillient! :clap:

I would feel so benevolent doing that for them! I'm sure they'll love it :heart:_:heart: Even if you don't think it looks perfect, they probably will think it's the best thing in the world : M
I think it looks nice. Rich colors on the skin, and I feel as if I could touch his hair~~

Wow. That is VERY realistic. I love the eyes. So much detail(sp?). The only problem I see is with the flower. (explaining the problem will be hard but I'll take a crack at it)The flower part you have a birds eye veiw of but you can still see the base of the stem where the flower conects to it. Other than that its A-W-E-S-O-M-E x 10! AND you took the time to paint it! If I were doing it I would be lazy and stop at the pencil part. XD Anywho, keep it up! ^-^

Hahaha I was actually thinking that it did sound like a pun when I was writing that :XD: I'm taking another drawing class, a life drawing class, sociology, and oceanography with a lab. I hate taking science classes with art :( Seems like it's gonna be a really tough semester >__<
