Jeez, Jimi. You are such a fantastic artist. To be able to switch mediums and still maintain such amazing realism and sense of proportion. Your skillz are above and beyond....

Thats looking tight so far man, I'm really impressed with the crossover time here. The proportions are right this time XD

Anyways, I thought I'd share an artist with you that you may or may not have run into.

he does paintings that blow minds, I don't think you would ever do something like him simply because your styles are so different, but I thought it would still be worth sharing

kat: hello my extremely attractive friend. you should sort through your photos and hook me up with a photo that i could practice painting with. i like pensive and broody, and something i could turn into a fantasty/ethereal type portrait like Kris Lewis or Mia does. although i know most of your photos are very happy like... :D thanks for the compliments too.

Andrew: sweet link yo! very nice realism integrated with fantasy. link saved!

porportions. spent a little more meticulous time with reference picture. i feel like its cheating though cause by the end its almost exactly the same as ref. i might as well have traced it and saved myself a couple hours.

ameeeeeeeeeeeeeee: ha. but sure, i would love too.
