oily frog

By pimecomb

last semester i had an oil painting class, occasionally we were allowed to choose our own subjects.
i wanted to do a tribute to Jim Henson, and, well, here it is. :)

don't mind the dark line across his nose, it took two shots to fully scan it in, then i pasted them together in MS paint.

it does carry a message, but in serious works i believe its better to leave that yo my audience's interpretation.

you don't believe me about the hidden doodleydo in your painting do you?

i believe that you believe in it. and as they say- you can believe whatever you want but it does not make it true. i think it is an observation of positive and negative space, if that makes you feel better

that works. its certainly just a coincidence, judging from your constant denial. and if the artist doesn't know what they painted who else is to say? :nod:

:iconkermityayplz: this is bad ass... my level of appreciation for Western cartoons and your art has really gone up!

Anime art can not capture epic like this can!

thanks a lot :D
this is just what happens when i really lean into it, i don't usually spend an hour and a half on one pic.

and where do you find those things? do you just keep typing :blanketyblankblankblankaplz: until you hit a winner?
Raku-Gosha's avatar
Yeah. I am glad to compliment this piece. Perhaps it will encourage you to spend more time on your work :icongrin--plz:

Yeah you hit the nail there. I just type things I think people might post up like Duke Nukem :iconballsofsteelplz: and see if it works. That and I remember the ones I like that other people use.

Hey Kermie!

Very nice painting. Oddly moving and weird. Love it!
