Re: Long & Curly

Steve I like the cropped one the best.
Palms I do believe you made her angry. (I like it though)

Re: Long & Curly

wow. you guys are good.

that's one of your best, peter.

steve, love the 2nd one. very painted.

palms, you got mood, girl

pavel, also painted nicely.

i went completely south. this one took a long time to find something that spoke to me more than just the gorgeous girl, which, you would think is enough, perhaps. but i wanted something else and couldnt find it... for a while. then it sort of came out of the dark and that's exactly what i ended up doing... something out of the dark.

Re: Long & Curly

Thank you Peter and Craig,
Craig i see the moodiness is catching although yours is a mystical/astrological type mood and i think it is great

Re: Long & Curly

Awesome interpretations, gents. Gorgeous gal. She exudes attitude. I went with a sketchy/etchy rendition -- with attitude.
