Just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten that thread were we were having some exchanges regarding the nature of will and "states". I enjoyed reading your replies and I will be coming back to it. Hope everything is good at your end:)
Oh, and sorry for replying so late. I haven't been here much lately due to several factors that I don't want to disclose here. I'm okay, Moocow, even though things have been better. Regarding Skype and G+, I might start popping in more frequently in the future. I take from your question that the skype chat is still very much alive and up and running?
Hope you're fine as well:)
Yes, thanks for sharing moocow. It has taken a pretty drastic shift in expression. I really like how the ship looks now. There is much more focus on detail (the beach, the water, and the ship itself). This focus on detail however, from my perspective, have sacrificed some of the originals mystique. I liked the blackness of the water in the original. Dark water enshrouded in fog inviting the viewer to inquire and entertain various ideas. It is the previous paintings foreignness that attracts me to it, much like perhaps Edgar Allan Poe, or Lovecraft's literature attracts it's readers, and to me, some of the paintings foreignness, or other-worldly-ness is lost in the new one.
What resources did you use/ how did you start drawing? I keep coming up with comic ideas, and while writing scripts is nice, it would be cool to one day be able to at least make rough drafts of them. (:
