Strange Behavior (Illustration) Entry: Tiziano Baracchi


#141

Thanks Ferx! The next update won’t be long in coming. :slight_smile:

Forgive the question: do you mean that you would like her hair to be shining or that you think they are a bit too shiny now?


#142

Hey Tiziano, I mean that i would like her hair a bit shiny :smiley: I think if you make the hair a bit shiny on the most near fairy (my loved scout fairy :slight_smile: ) you have a more range to paint the hair and shiny hair on the other fairys ( The hair is a one of the most sensual elements of the women, for sure :smiley: ) , only a comment my friend :slight_smile:


#143

Beautiful work. I think Fernando makes a good point about the hair - a hint more shine on it would look delightfully sensual.

It’s an amazing treat to watch your work progress


#144

I hear and obey, gentlemen. Thanks for the suggestion! :slight_smile:

Very likely a new update will be posted later today.


#145

And here comes my update, Scout’s hair are shinier :slight_smile: the standing Gladiator got some camo on and a new attire, the laying Gladiator got bilberry juice on, instead,also been working on the Contenders and Nerdy.
A question for you: how many bilberries are bobbing around or splattered on the rocks ? :wink:


#146

Fantastic work! The details are amazing. I sure can’t guess how many of those berries are in the scene but they look excellent


#147

Thanks Mark ! :blush:

This evening (well, at +1 GMT) I hope to post another update showing the center group finished: Nerdy & The Contenders (Oh, it’s not a pop band, btw :wink: )


#148

Wow! It looks fabulous Tiziano! Great to see how you build up your piece!
I’m patiently awaiting the update on Nerdy and the Contenders.

:slight_smile:

… ta-ta dum!

:rolleyes:

… hum hum …

:eek:

… ehrm …

:bounce:

Nah, I’m not! Show us! :twisted:


#149

Hi, RicoD! :slight_smile: Great to see you!
And since it’s not polite to keep people waiting… (drum roll)

Here come Nerdy and the Contenders!
… OK, there are a few more people as well, including someone that wasn’t there before.

I could swear this piece is becoming something of a ‘Where’s Waldo?’ thing, and now I find faces in the rocks everywhere (Thanks, OKMER :wink: ) and I didn’t put them in there on purpose…

Better not to mess with faeries, I tell you.


#150

Very good progress I see… now I want to see the finished work !


#151

Hey Tiziano,

It looks like you are close to the final :scream:!
And if I haven’t mentioned it before… I JUST LOVE IT! :love::love::love:
Those poses are so natural, and the colours!

Sorry for not heaving any critique… My posts are not of much help… I just like your work and want to express it :slight_smile:


#152

Yes. It looks like you’re close to completion. :wip: A fine piece of art :applause:

I still wonder though, why fairies are so popular on these boards?


#153

@ Musi : Thanks, it is very appreciated, Sasha :slight_smile: ! Natural & interesting poses with the right combo of lights and colors are one of my primiry objectives for this illustration… They should tell a story in a frame by a title that could be: “A gust of wind just before the full storm arrival”. It’s just the first skirmish, the rest will be told by the spectator immagination :wink: .

@ MartinNielsen : Glad you like it :slight_smile: ! And about fairies popularity… yes, I’m wondering why too… faires everywhere wrecking havoc with their cute eyes, victorian dresses and magic dust ! Maybe we need something, or SOMEONE, to teach them a lesson or two… maybe a “COMMANDO” will do. :twisted:

BTW yes, I am close to the final: I’m planning to add some more detail on the left side of the image and before the end of this week I shall post it complete.


#154

Hey Tiziano, thats great !! I love all the elements used on your image (and the faces and feets on the rocks are a great “random” detail :smiley: , seriously. i love all the different types of wings for your fairies. that is a really great touch!!) The berry juice on the laying gladiators looks superb mate!! great. The Nerdy is cool (and of course, she received most of the berries :slight_smile: ). And the atmosphere and lighting, put a magical and sensual note to all composition, really nice!! . I can only say: awesome work my friend!! (and i love the scout fairy!! :smiley: ) Cheers ! :beer:


#155

Ooops, Arianna, sorry, your comment flew under my radar. Thank you so much for your appreciation, the final will come soon:-)

Ferx, thanks, mate! Really really happy you like it, believe it or not, faces and footprint weren’t planned at all… :slight_smile:

Tonight or tomorrow, after a few unifying touches I’ll post the whole, if after a few days there are no suggestion for touch-ups I’ll upload that as final, otherwise corrections will be made.
Thanks all for your great feedback!


#156

Unfortunately I wasn’t regular in this thread, but I must say that this is really great piece of art.

Characters very beautifull.

It would be great to see the whole picture.


#157

Demitsuri, thank you so much! I’m always happy to see known faces , no matter how long since the last visit. :slight_smile:

And here comes the full painting. In my opinion this could be the final, but would love your opinions on the matter, folks: anything I missed 'cause I’m not really seeing it anymore? Thanks for looking!
