such an original idea and expert execution! The victorian gothic feel is a wonderful departure from the bright and energetic blonde always depicted. I love the dark violet roses on the hair (thorn-ed no less) and the intricacies of the frame ...and her grarb! lovely!
This is lovely and an original take on the fairytale- I like the withered flowers in her hair- a contrast to the bright colours of 'Tangled' and that comb is very 'Tim Burton' I love the gilt, ornate detail on the mirror that surrounds her, it frames the piece really well
I am amazed at the rate you paint these... As well as the variety of sources for inspiration and with such a high and constant quality. As if you just drew rabbits out of a hat at will.
I hear writers tend to have their writer's blocks and that being creative is often difficult (I know... ), but looking at your works and productivity rate, all those complaints could be just due to lack of time or vision... Or talent. Or both.
Never mind the rate, I'm just glad we can enjoy what you can do.
Just wondering, what age has anything to do with anything... Not every composer is Mozart with birth gift to develop virtuosity from early age like he did. Still, that has not stopped others making masterpieces later on in their life.
I am completely useless in drawing, painting and anything like that so nothing I say should be viewed as critique about "how it should be done". I have no idea of commercial viability of some art either, I was just glad to see how these duck paintings became popular in Finland just as I hoped they would when seeing them in an exhibition back in the day.

So, comparing the original drawing and this one, you really seem to have found your style and love what you do. Even for my untrained eye the development is obvious so in that sense your efforts are not going in vain.
Yes, of course you're right. Everyone has their own way of development. I just think that I can do much better, so I have to work hard to be satisfied with myself By the way, lovely duck paintings Very high quality work, and at the same time funny and ridiculous
