30'x40' acrylic Shamans are experienced in traveling between the outer worlds, and through inner realms. With out the shaman's help you might become irretrievably lost. You must give yourself over to the shaman prince and trust him to guide you safely through the jungle of the multi-verse.

Cool XD I like your backstories, they give even more feeling to the art. Impressive mood and color choices; I really need practice 14

:-) 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. "

i really like the markings that go over the body. they almost lookto be raised at times. really like this piece.

:-) Joel N. Barkley 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!"
