Magnificent.  I wish I could get more comments for my work.  Im new here so I have just started posting some work..  Funny you prefer acrylic, I love oil due to the fact you have so much more blending time.

Thank-you~~ and your work is pretty great so just give it time and I'm sure people will come around~

I can't for the life of me figure out oil paint. I tried it once and I spent 50 times longer blending and it still looked like crap in the end haha.

I don't have a "real" job or go to school/have a social life so pretty much all I do all day is paint/draw, so time kind of just blends together. xD
I usually do paintings like this in one sitting because I literally have nothing else to do haha.

This is a painting? And acrylic?! 
Holy crap, you must have some amazing patience and skill. Beautiful work- I swore it was a photograph. Great value and contrast. I wish your signature was a little easier to see though!

Yes and yes~ Oh golly Blush Thank-you very much. To me acrylic paint is a lot easier to manipulate, it's the oil paint that's impossible, I've never been able to figure it out. I tried it once and spent 8 hours trying to blend something that would normally take me twenty minutes haha. You do have a point about the signature though, in hindsight it should've been white or something. I'll remember that for next time~

We all started somewhere;) your background experience would help drastically in the digital world. I have yet to even come close to the realism you put in traditional media. :)
