Amass the Components

Amass the Components, oil on paper mounted to MDF, 12" x 16"

Another piece for Avacyn Restored.  Painting someone more or less unhinged was fun. I was worried that she would come of as just happy and not crazy, but I think I got the expression right. I also enjoyed painting the different colors and degrees of viscosity of the liquids in the jars.

  5. This piece gets me on two levels.

    First, I dig the piece as a whole and, as usual, I'm in awe of your skills.

    Second, it strikes at the very heart of what I find to be somewhat lacking in fantasy: humor. Don't get me wrong, there are folks doing it, but for my money, there aren't enough of them.

    Good stuff!

  7. This is easily my favorite art in the set for the mad glee on her face. When will this be available as an Etsy print? :D
