'If he did not exist it would be necessary to invent him.' -- Voltaire

'I want to reconcile the violence in your heart.
I want to recognise your beauty is not just a mask.
I want to exorcise the demons from your past.
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart.' -- Muse, Undisclosed Desires www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RpKkQ…

Calliste :) My reinvention of this particular character as the creative spirit that breaks free from the labyrinth of the mind. Extra marks to any who can spot all the mythical elements. Enjoy ;)

Daedalus as the Vitruvian Man!  Love it!  Also like your choice of music--Muse is a favorite of mine while painting as well.  :)

Beautiful work and a fantastic sextet of wings (you always paint such nice feathers).

One note though - there appears to be a pair of eyes leering up his robe... ahem

Thank you! I've had a lot of practice with feathers, but I still end up painting them slightly differently each time. Maybe a method would make them look less real?

Haha, trust you to look at it like that! ;P :giggle:

I think method is the least of what you do with the feathers (hence your success drawing them differently every time).  Your knowledge of how the feathers look and the kind of textures and shapes they're made of is good enough to survive any method you employ and your more relaxed approach to the exact technique you use keeps it visually interesting and dynamic.  I would imagine keeps it more interesting for you too.

It's not how I'm looking at "it" that's the issue ;)
