Why thank you! I truly enjoy that you have used a quote from the Rubaiyat, by the way...

Thanks!! I really wish I had more time to work on art at this point in my schedule. It seems I spend more time managing the publishing process than actually WORKING on my project!

*Nods* I hear you there dude, and am with you al the way. I have an art trade that should have been done a long time ago, but have had little opportunity to work on it due to other pressing matters, and my dire need for a vacation. I'll be keeping an eye out for more of your work though.

This is incredible, expecially the face.

Thanks! His face was really fun to do! I had to use about five different photo references before I found all the bits I used to help me make it. An eye here,..a mouth there,..the spines from another, a unique snout,...etc... I then put it all together and when I paint it,..all the elements blend into one whole quite nicely. I then add the extra features, like the extra lighting to make the eye really special and deep, bringing out the mouth a little more and giving him a bit of a human-like expression at it's edges... that type of stuff...

I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

you totally need to make an iguana buddha.

Ha ha!!! No,..no,..you KNOW that I MUST use some awesomely porky bullfrog if I'm gonna do one of those plump "rub my belly", happy-buddhas correctly! (unless I do one of those more svelte Thai buddhas with the pointy hat....)....

By the way,..is that guy's name from your quote actually Willian ....with an "n"?

Remial Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2007
Yeah, I agree a massive bullfrog would be more the buddha type. Still, that doesn't change the fact that you must do one ! ;)

And yes, his name is actually "Willian". Odd as it may seem.
