This is extremely amazing.


How many years have you been doing this?

This is amazing! XD

It looks photo realistic, I hardly can tell if it isn't a photo or not!

But the shading looks a bit rough.


Still looks fantastic.




And now, to say random words so the 100 minimium thing will run out.<33


Super duper super super super super supper super looper cat super super duper superb. AND AGAIN I SAY:
Super duper super super super super supper super looper cat super super duper superb.
Super duper super super super super supper super looper cat super super duper superb.
Super duper super super super super supper super looper cat super super duper superb.

The shadow of the pinecone helps to creates defenition for the artwork.

The colours used in this art work bring the pinecone out of the page and to life. It is allmost as if the pinecone seeds are coming out of the page.

All the detail applyed to the pinecone with all the variating colours mkes the artwork very interesting to look at. The warm colours of the subject matter contrasts lively with the shadow and complents the artwork beautifly.

This artwork is may not be that original although it has its own originality to it that comes with an experenced artist with their own refined talents, techniques and preferences.

Ohh. Yes. I think it's a good drawing and painting project. It ensures that you understand depth, space, and lighting.

Wow I thought this was digital work when I first saw it. Major props for making something this stunning with traditional media. :love:

Also, I love the simplicity. Nothing beats still lifes in my opinion.

I used to really dislike still lifes, but I have to do them for class. And honestly I have learned more from still lifes than almost anything else!!

The pine cone is pretty good. I honestly wish I could paint like even as good as you with acrylics. The shading of the shadow is a bit rough but the pine cone itself has lots of detail. =D
