Got this baby scanned! Totally fudged the colours though, had to spend waaay too much time in Photoshop trying to fix them so they actually reflect the original (and not some homogenous washed-out version of it).

Finally finished it!

This was soooo hard to photograph...I love that metallic paint but damn, it sure is a bitch to take a good photo of.

This piece has been sitting unfinished for awhile, too long. I liked the concept and how it was looking, but I had no idea what to do with the background. You can see the unfinished piece here:…

I'm really happy with this. It developed nicely, and although I didn't have much of an idea of what it was going to look like, still turned out well.

Lots of that gorgeous copper acrylic paint that I adore so much, so when you view it at different angles, parts have a wicked metallic sheen. And that colour is so pretty even when its not being all shiny.
I bought a bronze too, but its The shine is bronze-ish, but the actual colour is kind of strange. I'll find a way to use it. And I need gold and silver.

Trying to decide if I want to sell the original or not...

Please let me know what you think. All feedback is super appreciated :heart::heart::heart:

Also an entry for the contest being held by :iconbirds-club: based on Emotions.
The emotion for this piece is "Euphoria".
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly? To defy gravity, to simply soar..I've had dreams and the feeling I am filled with is one that keeps me glowing for days.
When that pure, good feeling takes over you, the edges between reality and bliss seem to blur. Your spirits soar, and you feel invincible.
Is that what it feels like to fly for an eagle?
Wish we could know.
