Mister Kelpie by Altalamatox Mister Kelpie by Altalamatox
An acrylic painting commissioned by *CindarellaPop of her kelpie Kenneth! He's 8.5" by 5.5" and was about seven hours in the painting.

Kelpies are freaking sweeeeet. There are some in the Network, I need to dig them up again.

wow this is a version of a kelpie I've not seen! I like it better this way, at least it's believable now how it would be able to grab it's "prey"

Got him hanging over my desk. The space over my desk is looking mighty fine these days.

his hands are scary, though he SEEMS to be charming and happy...never trust a kelpie.

how you manage to put detail while not putting much detail is still beyond my understanding :)

I really love your paintings! I think I'm slowly getting sick of seeing so much digital, so this is nice to see.

oooooh this is stunning. Feels like a big departure from what you normally show off. I really really love it. The colors feel more subtle and mood-inducing and the form is just pleasant to look at. Wonderful job!

I really, really need to get off my saturation addiction. Someday I'll learn you can still make colorful art without cranking the colors up to eye-assaulting levels. I'm finding real media bars me from acting on many of the bad habits I've gathered with the computer. It's making me loosen up my digital paintings as well, which is nice. Anyway, happy you like how this looks!

Are you planning on doing other things in this style? You know me, I would always love-love a commission ~ but just getting to see more would be great too!

Maybe you could draw my ugly, diseased little friend <3 He's already so grossly pale, he'd work great.

I love Kelpies! There was this story I used to read as a kid about a kelpie and there was a creepy illustration I used to stare at! I'll have to bust that out again! Nice Work!
