it has been a year since my first post on elfwood and i want all who have taken the time to comment on my works here how much i have enjoyed the very constructive feedback. i think i have been making steady progress, but i will leave that up to you all. one thing i am sure of is that i have listened closely to what has been said and tried to take it into account as i concieve of and create my projects. i hope the next year shows similar results, and that my new stuff will generate as much enthusiasm with my fellow elfies as the stuff already up has( to my delight). here is a straight-forward painting approach to a classic subject rendered with painter software on a wacom(my m.o.).hope you like, and thanks for stopping by!
