This is part of the star sign project I had to do. As you can tell I'm still learning to master the use of acrylic. Maybe I should try oil paint. What do you think about the picture.

um...you should take a life drawing class and a design class--and color theory...also, it looks like his hand is broken or something...I know you have some explanation for that, but it's wierd lookin (and 'if it looks wrong, it is wrong' -- my drawing teacher). Anyway, how old are you? you could have a future in illustration if you want to put in the 1,000's of hours it takes to become great. Go to college, study anatomy, design, illustration, color, etc. It'll make you that much better.

This dude can just stay home the next time I go out at night. Really, I love this. Love the colours. Is that a thin braid on each side at the front of his hair? If so... I finally have seen someone else besides myself who wears them like that--even if he is only a painting. Like I said, great work... You captured the dark brooding aspect I have seen in Tauruses at times. Personally... I love the eyes. They are one of the very striking things about this picture. The way you presented them was unexpected. Do Aries.

Us Taureans are masters of the element of earth, representing power and beauty, and I believe that that is exactly what you did. Nice job!!!!And best regards!!!

2 I look at this old work with some great memories. Yes I can see the many anatomical mistakes I made, but hahaha I think it gives the work some character. Oh I would love to redo this, but I feel that I would take away something that I was only able to capture at the time of the painting. I will en devour to complete the remaining zodiacs. It would be fun to see what I can do now.
