A new work in progress


Good news everyone, I started another painting. The reason that I'm doing another painting, other then the fact that I'm an artist and it's what I do, is this; I am going to have some of my work up on display at Divas cupcake and coffee shop. They do a monthly meet the artist reception and the wife and I are the artists for February. I thought to myself, what should I put up for the little showing? Why not another panda? I had some good ideas that I hadn't used yet so I went ahead an drew this one up today. Although I have to admit, it wasn't an all day drawing, I slept in until...well let's just say I slept in. But, at any rate, the image that you see is my charcoal under drawing that I love to begin with. If anyone has any critiques for this before I start painting, then shoot em off, cause I'll be painting this soon.

Also, I got a new cactus. It looks really cool, sadly I don't have a picture yet. I might some day soon though, but we'll see. Have a good night.

Not gunna lie... Cupcakes and smoke? Maybe a panda like what you have minus the cigarette? Smoking is now being frowned upon and the new cool is health fitness and being green. I wouldn't hang a smoking anything in my cupcake shop that children frequent.. especially in SLC

Don't worry about that, they are thinking of having a wine tasting for our opening. I really doubt that they are worried about a cigarette, but thanks for the critique, I'll mull it over if I want to take it out. Do you think it works for the composition?

Tyler, DO NOT listen to them....I simply love this piece and I think a lot of others will to. It is one of my favs and that extra detail (cigarette) in the mouth makes it what it is. DO NOT remove the cigarette.
IT IS VERY COOL
