Cool XD I like your backstories, they give even more feeling to the art. Impressive mood and color choices; I really need practice Joel N. Barkley
replies: "I am so glad you like the back stories. I enjoy writing them, but I worry that I might sound schmaltzy or korny. Woo hoo! And as far as color goes, don’t ever stress yourself about painting with color. It should be fun, always. And when you are working with color, as appalling as it may sound, add a little umber to it. Makes it more sound, more natural and warm. "

replies: "Actually, they started out as war paint, but when I got to the torso I gave the stripes dimension like a light weight armor. I am still undecided. Thanks for stopping by! More to come!"
