Hi Surreal,
Great work!!! What media do you use? The nude's skin tones are rich and luscious. The birds and natural elements (clouds, grasses, mountains, etc.) are well rendered. Your skillful use of perspective, light and shadow make the "unbelievable" believable. What can I say except ... Masterful!!!
Thanks for posting.

The second one is very good, but the nude is amazing. That is world class work. It looks almost photographic. It has so much life and depth. Do you work from photos or models or both?

best regards,
Joe

The work is 1st class. The girl is very nice. But I would like it better without the sguare hole and the birds.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Working From Photo

Postby Michaelblade » Tue Dec 19, 2006 3:38 pm

Does that mean the canvas has a photo image on it?

Very Dali, very Magritte... minus the depressive quality about them (manifested in the symbols and colors)... which is great. While I like the colors, the way the girl's skin looks like (delish!), there is something strange and unnatural in the way the face is angled. It may be a little too big for the rest of the body.

The surreal nude

Noting amazing in copying a famous idea. Very Dali - said Rusalka. Copping Daly - yes, but pretty fumble.
At least try to adjust the hole to fit naturally in her body (then it'll be "very Dali"). You have skills but they will never make you great artist if you don't have originality...

girl with birds

Postby ehoeveler » Mon Feb 19, 2007 3:46 pm

Who said "There is nothing new under the sun"?
I love the girl, skin tones are fabulous, all the color is great,
but why did you have to put that darn square opening in her
body? I know about Dali, but --ck Dali! You sould paint the girl,
body intact, with birds taking off from her hand or arm.
Fabulous work. ehoeveler

I disagree...I think the nude is beautiful, maybe the idea is dali-esque but the stylization and painting of the color and subject are very very different. I think many people would place this on their wall as is...the detail need not be exact, only unique...

Nice work! The technique is ok, but I have some other remarks.
Is there something off with the color of the sky in the first picture? Having in mind the position of the light source (in this case the sun), and the shadows, I guess it should be near sunset, and the color of the sky doesnt match. The second thing that pops in my eye is her nose. The girl is really hot, but the upper part of the nose isnt very anatomicaly correct. The third thing is the hole. Its lines are too perfect because the girls body isnt flat. And because of the angle, it doesnt make her look very 3D. Also, it would be better if you made the hole dark. It would give her a sence of mistery, a dark side perhaps - which would contrast the white doves.
Now, the second one. I do not think that the composition is quite right here. Maybe its not the composition but the color of the wall and the floor. It just cuts the picture so much that it makes the right part stand out. The color should be different. But, maybe that is a part of what you wanted to say...

Once again, nice work.
