Family by juliedillon Family by juliedillon
This is a commissioned portrait for my friend :iconhubby-n-dad:, which unfortunately took a ludicrously long time to complete. (I'm so sorry!) I wanted to make sure I got it finished before I got buried under contract work for months again. ;)

It's a portrait of him and his family, with his wife teaching his daughter some druidly earth magic, which has drawn the attention of several other families of animals. It was nice having a "quiet" painting where I could spend time rendering foliage and animals and drapery. :) I do love painting big trees.. :love:

Thanks again to :iconhubby-n-dad:, you're a really great guy :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-04-22
Family by *jdillon82 screams fantasy with the large array of mythical creatures roaming about. The image displays a beautiful color palette and fine attention to detail is seen throughout, from the tiny leaves upon the trees to the perfect lighting sources.

Just hangin’ out, hangin’ out

Hangin’ out with my family, having ourselves a paaaarty

Just hangin’ out, hangin’ out

Hangin’ out with my family, having ourselves a paaaarty

 

A cool summer breeze, make me feel at ease

The barbecue is roarin’, and Uncle Phil is scorin’!

Big Mama’s in the kitchen, and everybody’s wishin’

That she’s fixin’, their FAV-orite dish

 

Just hangin’ out, hangin’ out

Hangin’ out with my family, having ourselves a paaaarty

Just hangin’ out, hangin’ out

Hangin’ out with my family, having ourselves a paaaarty

Just hangin’ out, hangin’ out

Hangin’ out with my family, having ourselves a paaaarty

Just hangin’ out, hangin’ out

Hangin’ out with my family, having ourselves a paaaarty

 

Young ladies are doin’ their make-up, and the brother’s can’t wait to HOOK up

Just gots some sweet tunes on the radio, and I hear somebody say HEL-LO

So grandma starts to dancin’, and grandma starts to prancin’

To make sure that the fellas, don’t try any glancin’!

 

Just hangin’ out, hangin’ out

Hangin’ out with my family, having ourselves a paaaarty

Just hangin’ out, hangin’ out

Hangin’ out with my family, having ourselves a paaaarty
