Daily Deviation

Given 2004-10-03
Body by *mickey03 is a wonderfully expressive piece, much like the rest of this talented painters gallery. To quote the suggestor "Don't you just love how she withers away into the canvas." - Yes, I do. ( Suggested by Dieguito and Featured by phae )

man! the girls I've been with hate it when I pull out the paints and canvas during sex.

lucky guy.

Great style - so much energy & expression.
Looking through your gallery I saw some paintings that reminded
of Francis Bacon, but again you have your own distinct style that
makes your work truly unique & emotive.

This is excellent - great style - well painted.

You took this photo as model, right ? [link]
Why didn't you mention it in the description ?
ahmednayyer Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2007  Professional General Artist
Yes, true!

If this famous picture [link] from `fidget was a source inspiration, it should have been said in the description.

Overachiever22 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2005
The texture throughout, especially in the face, is amazing! I don't know how you pulled it off! This is definitely a favorite of mine! <33
FrauKruspe Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2005
Oh my sweet lord, everything's on your paintings are right. The colors, the ... The... Whole painting! This inspiering me a lot, makes me wanna do own paintings and do sketches again. Well... What more can I say? There's just no words for this, there's no existense of words beyond "extraordinary, increadably perfection".

May I say this is absolutely an add-to-favourite. Great work! Keep it up! :clap:
Fenixgfx Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2005

Redsalamander Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005   Digital Artist
Very nice touch.
Looks like traces of blood smeared on a beautiful corpse.
You could add some more words to artist's comments...

I like this a lot, reminds me of Jenny Saville's work.
seas Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2004
oh. didnt look like much in thumbnail. thought it was "just a boring painting", in full.. gods gods. "just a boring realistic painting" was what i figred. imperfeciton is perfection. it doesnt look like a normal person, a normal photo, a normal... anything. fucked up eyes, fucked up lips (in the wasy of "weird lip... excepression", as in, thats fucking good!!) and do am in love with the way it she her that what withers away, all detail all detail, i'd be proud to have this hanging on my wall (with all the textury reflective goodness of a real painting). hmm yes, yummmmm..... oh, it's not like sheheitwhathuh is withering away, more exploding, more melting from acid, or if she's just a leaf, jsut a bounch of leaf, just a tree, and her leafs are flying away in the storm......

thats really beautiful! i love the colors used and the pose. *stares for alittle longer* wow. just wow.
ori Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
The expression of the face and body is matched only by the thick paint creating that elusive feeling of more. The natural skin tones contrasted and somehow flowing together with the bold reds create a stare-worthy image I can't take my eyes away from. The mouth and chin and that wisp of hair are excellently done.
redninja Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
my comments are exactly alike to many others, the way the head and arm seem to come out of nothing is just fascinating, it almost looks like it could all of a sudden move and reach out and grab you. your brush strokes create this allusion so well, i wish i had your talent with paint!
onlyme Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004  Student
i love it. this painting is gorgeous. i love the colour scheme, and it seems to capture an active moment that is so natural and unavoidable but not necessarily atttractive. very emotional and revealing.
krutie Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
I enjoy your art; it's all very emotional

Wow. That is...wonderful. :clap:
mizz-messed-up Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
oil paint huh?
doesn't it bother you that you've got more favourites than comments? that's gotta irk some people.

but this is a nice piece. i think the colours are a bit too neutral for my taste, but that's personal preference. it's really great.
CanoeGuru Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
This image is full of suggestive sensuality, but at the same time gives me a feeling of violence. I'm sure this is because of the red splashes and smears and the way she seems to be "falling apart". I really like the different textures, especially the crackled look around the cheek, chin and shoulder, and the combination of solidity and transparency in different areas. This is an incredibly evocative piece, truly a work of art. Superb!
ekud Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
it would appear i have a new favorite artist.

i'm impressed by how free your expression is, and hope you aren't afraid to break conventions.

this is really an excellent portrait, i hope to see more from you!

BAHZUT Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
It looks to me like maybe she was hit or in an accident. Is that why you call it body?
TheTrieckel Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
