I'm quite impressed by your work as it is Very Happy

I tried acrylic paint before and gave up at that point because I had a hard time getting the details to come out right.

You inspired me to maybe try again.

I'm looking forward to seeing your future paintings.

ANd feel free to completely ignore me, but often in the drawings in the original tomb scenes, they continue the jaw line a bit beyond the neck. (Yours stops at the throat). I noticed in my own paintings that continuing the jawline a bit gives a slightly different effect.

Okay, I didn't ignore this previously, I just figured that you were right. When I got home I looked at all of my books on ancient Egypt and most of the paintings that I saw were like mine (no jaw line). And I noticed that it's not a characteristic of a certain time period, because one painting I saw of two figures, one had the line and one didn't. I'm not trying to be a bugger, it's just that I don't ussually do things wrong and it bugged me that you would point that out.

Yes the effect is.......different, but I don't think it should've been mentioned, I mean, I would never say to you "You know, your paintings would have a "different effect" if you didn't trace them".

I never implied you did anything wrong at all.
I just mentioned that I had noticed the fact that sometimes jawlines get continued (I quite deliberately used the word often in my sentence to point out it's not a rule or anything).
I only meant to tell you what I had been thinking about and experiment with. Hence the "ignore this if you want" preface to it.

I don't see why not. I never criticized anything you did. Nor put you down in any way shape or form.

I personally like hearing the impressions of other people who paint. It was meant as an exchange of ideas, nothing else.

I would never say anything negative about your artwork btw. I like your stuff too much for that.

And you're right btw. My paintings would have quite different if I didn't trace my paintings Laughing I don't have as much talent as you do when it comes to drawing free-hand Wink

You needn't take it as negative criticism, Daniella. I'm no artist, but I saw it as one artist sharing ideas with another.

LOL You have to develop a thick skin if your serious about this stuff. As a graphic designer I'll labor for hours on a project and pour my heart and soul into it for a client, and then he'll come along and say "Change this, change that" until it no longer resembles what I had crafted. Indeed, in the end it might look like crap to me, but I have to grin and bear it. I just don't add it to my professional portfolio.

I wait till I'm home so I can scream and rant. Laughing
