Rusty

This piece is going back a few years. I came across it the other day while searching through some old files. I don't really do this kind of aggressive imagery much anymore but I still kind of like this one. The old metal and rusty armoured surfaces were quite fun to render. I sold him shortly after I painted him and then forgot all about him until just the other day - so I thought I would share him here.

You have a particular knack for painting armour that looks thick, heavy and rusty. Lovely textures!

I like the way you handled the paint here. It has a pleasant patina. I just wandered through a couple of years of posts -- time flies -- and noticed that throughout you have a perfect pitched sense of gesture and composition. It was a very pleasant trip. Thanks.

Have a great time and good luck with IlluXCon. I wish I could be there.
