    Ralph, I was making a musical reference about grunge, although I think most cities could stand a clean-up. In truth, though Seattle is only an hour away, I don't spend any time there. I prefer the woods.

    Don, Isla, thank you. I guess along with the hands I was trying to paint attitude.

    Rita, Rob, thank you. I'm not sure where this came from. After I posted the last one, I just started drawing without knowing what. That neck did start it. Then the face with that nose and I got the concept. I put hands and/or feet in a lot of my work because they are difficult for me. These hands were challenging and I wish they were better.

    Hi all. Thanks for the comments. It kinda completed a concept that started with an earlier piece. I might still have something to finish with the first sketch as long as it doesn't get boring. Ralph, here by Seattle, we know a little about grunge.;)

    This definitely looks haunted.

    I think you captured the essence very well. The head tilt is effective.

    Dave I see more and more suggested in there each time I look. Great mix.

  • Rectangles
    I haven't figured a way to do that but in the Design brushes there is a Collection called Lines and Outlines that might help.

    The pose suggests abandonment. Good job Dave.

    I like what you ended up with and the individual layers are pretty cool.

  • Twisted brush crashes when I try to load an image into a layer
    I haven't figured out a fix. I am using 2305 for now. I'll probably try a Windows uninstall and clean up whatever mess that happens and start over. I'm saving files and settings and dreading that I will forget things.

    Ralph, before digital, especially as a youngster, I was so frustrated because my ability to change my art was very limited by the media. I erased holes in paper, destroyed watercolors and wasted pen and ink drawings changing things while the work evolved in my head. I am still amazed by what I can do with TB. It seems especially suited for my methods. When you explain how you let it evolve, I get it.

    Thanks Ralph. I hadn't consciously thought about the Lascaux cave paintings until your comment. There are just all sorts of things going on in our heads that fuel creativity. I'm glad for that and thankful. I do have my own spiritual beliefs and am comfortable with everyone else's whatever they might be. Some of it shows up in my art and sometimes it's there and doesn't show up. View at your own risk. ;)

    Rob I use horizontal flip a lot to find my mistakes. There are plenty. I use reference photos a lot but only to make sure what is in my head somewhat reflects what things should look like. I don't use specific photos to copy. So the flipping helps me make sure my concept works.

    Rob, it wasn't me who brought up the mushrooms. It was one one the other two, probably the one that looks like the avatar. He was probably talking about hallucinogenic mushrooms. The kind that make people see bees that aren't there and rainbow colored cashews.:-O

    Thanks Don for the use of your post for a psych blog.;)
