Agreed. If a "standard" of beauty must exist, it should be this. A beautiful, vibrant, HEALTHY woman. Not a sad, anorexic shadow of a woman with fake implants. :worry:

Her abdomen looks squish able and very real. I like the way she doesn't conform to a skinny girl and has voluptuous flab instead. Very well done and extremely realistic.

Yes, the light coming off Aurora is nice, but the way the basin and bricking around it is lit makes the ground look like it is suddenly diving off the page. The ground seems to take a an impossible slope. Is this on purpose? If so...way cool! :)

Very fine work with the colors, textures, movements... but the perspective on the lower part of the image is not good (it's the "basin" in which she stands that makes it wrong), and the lighting of her body looks rather flat. Or is it that the light comes off her ? Maybe a little glow would help then.

This is truly stunning! I'm glad to see such gorgeous work done in alkyd oils. I have been wanting to try them for a while now, but have a limited budget for experimenting in different expensive mediums. May I ask if they have the same feel/consistency of traditional oils? People also say they are more translucent and glossy. Is this true?

Sorry for the long message :)

Cheers :ahoy:

SWKerr Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2012
Thanks, glad you like it. Alkyd oils are great for fast overnight drying (especially when thinned/mix with bit of Liquin Light. Same feel and qualities as standard oils but can dry on the palette sometimes too quick during a days session! Translucency depends on the paint. If you use Liquin (great for layering with thin glazes) then always a gloss finish but you only have a few hours in which to make any amendments, but then you can completely paint over next time. Hope this helps :-)
