Sigh… I wish I could draw, these are amazeballs!!!
You can do it
I was looking at the first pic and thought wow, @quinnine2 is doing sublimation now. Then I saw the closeups and it blew me away. Such a master if color!
Wow thanks…yes all colored by hand. Maybe one day I try my other hand at sublimation. Been looking at uv printers but way outta my price range🤔
Are these portraits of actual people that you know? There is so much personality in each one.
Did I already say wow?
That is a wonderful style, there. The colors really make it pop!
These are amazing and I love them so much!
Yes I was wondering if you took orders to do actual people
You have such a unique art style! Lovely work. So glad you have a Glowforge!
Love Love Love!!!
I guess you can say they are a mash up of people and imagination…when it comes to trying to get peoples likeness I’m not the greatest. Think I put to much pressure on getting them to look exactly like the person that I fail miserably.
Many thanks…this is what I got my forge for.
yay… thanks for the wows…appreciated🙏
I think the idea is to take the most outstanding features and exaggerate them a bit. I used to be able to make an animal look alive by subtle positioning but never was able to do realistic people. It gas been so long I doubt I could do any of it now.
Everything has been said … but your work is so impressive! So glad you shared photos!
Very interesting. The coloring is great on these.
For some reason I think of two of my favorite modern picaresque novels: Handling Sin by Michael Malone, and Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. Although they also would work for Infinite Jest by DFW or any Pynchon novel.
What I am saying is that you have captured in art what they have captured in words.
