wax and wane by oreides wax and wane by oreides
overdue for an update. had fun with this one.
lots of detail got lost after applying textures.. lesson learned.
ref used for figure of course, but not painstakingly so...

I am mesmerized by this, I look at it almost every day. So much energy, dynamic composition, surprising and powerful color. I love it.

Gorgeous. It's like it could be something by Gustav Klimt, if Klimt was living in the 1980's. :)

Hey i noticed you used some pretty neat textures - I'm not sure if you hand make your own textures but just in case you would like some to use for free you should check out this web site [link]

I use it all the time for some subtle blending - you should check it out!

Woah! Reminds me of "The Company of Wolves", the surreal erotic manner yet beautiful grace and fairytale-like imagery. So much colour, and I love the wolf's teeth, it looks like something from Asian mythology. :D

thanks. no, ive never seen that artist before, but it isn't really something someone can claim... its just traditional tattoo style.

I haven't seen any tattoos with huge teeth like those before, but maybe my view is too narrow. I'm just saying that the colors, teeth, and pose seem similar to something she would do. Nothing wrong with that, just saying. She's someone that I think you should look at though. She designs tattoos from time to time. A jack of all trades. She does costuming, sculpting, painting, leatherwork, t-shirt designs, and she's a professional graphic designer and animator.

Even though you feel that the use of textures made some of the details fade a bit, the expression of the piece itself is still strong.

Holy shit this is awesome. It reminds me of that song Werewolf by... who is it, Cat Power?

Given this thing's face, you could probably design some pretty great tattoos yourself.
