Serenade to a Poodle

    Newer Older

    I rarely draw from a live model, and when I do, this is the outcome,, and I wonder why no one else asks me to draw there portrait...I did this one while gallery sitting at Nexus Gallery in Philly, back in 1994

    pinkytoast, garbnzgh, frogmuseum2, and 24 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Ahahaha! You wrote "and I wonder why no one else asks me to draw their portrait..."

      I like this, it's intense, but I can see why no one would ask you to draw their portrait...

      sort of a combination of gollum and the grinch. the title really makes it.

      Yeah, I thought of the Grinch too.

      I agree with miss plum, very gollum-esque! He also reminds me of "puddleglum" from "the silver chair".

      Her eyes look like Gollum's!

      well no wonder she looks so traumatized, poor thing's losing her hair!

      I'd love to have a portrait of myself done by you, in this way.

      Always go with your instincts. Conventional portraits are often boring and artificial; this is interesting.

      More real than depiction, and a knockout title, again.

      If I saw this person on the street, I'd start booking in the opposite direction!

      This is one of my "favorites" and I want you to know that every time I look through them and see this image it still makes me smile.

      Exceedingly funny, but intense and delicate too.
      Did you really try hard with this? That would make it even funnier... ;)

      Smeagol not likes it! Master Snailbooty paints Smeagol wearing tank top, but Smeagol not wears tank top!
