I've taken a few real "fine art" classes in college, but have yet to actually do much fine art. Here are some of my favorite recent anime and fantasy mixed-media paintings I did for an art show. They didn't sell, so I took some more photos to share. Constructive critiques are welcome!


acrylic on canvas board, though this one did sell

*edit* obviously I am not selling the paintings with the words on them, those are all watermarks to make it harder for thieves to steal

"Kill and Destroy" is wonderful. I love it.
As for criticism. I assume the writing on the 2nd and 3rd paintings is on the paintings themselves and not added with a computer. If it is so, I would advise you not to write it. Name the painting that way, but you don't need to put it on the actuall painting. I don't know, I guess it's just my personal opinion, but I think they would be better and more "sellable" if you omitted the writing.

But again, the blue fairy with the kitten, you did a great job.

sorry, I just went to your etsy and realized my mistake. Why do you put that writting on the painting with the computer?

The writing on the paintings is just for watermarking purposes, so that no one will steal the images. (Hey, it happened one time before, I'm not paranoid.)

I should probably make a note of that in my first post.
