I promised that I would post an illustration that I did of glass. What do you think of this for glass?

Pretty damn good and a helluvalot better than I could do :afro:

Thanks Blunt. Here's one some of you might've seen... or not. It's the fisherman I did standing in the water. I think I did water better with this one. But that because it has other objects in it though.

Glass, yes.  Are the items falling, or just abstractly placed in the image?

I like the backlighting round the edges of the fisherman.  This one makes me think of stage lighting.

The glass is abstractly placed. I wanted an interesting angle ... almost providing motion. As for the backlighting in the fisherman painting. I was trying to capture early morning sun light reflected from the water.

I like the atmos of the painting and the colours very much.  Going on the scale of the man, the line looks a bit too thick to me, TBH.  A lovely painting, though :smiley:  Great detailing on the fisherman and his gear, too.

The line isn't too thick if he's fly fishing. Those lines are very thick and made of some kind of rubber. I used to have a couple fly reals and rods. Never could get the hang of it though. I used to be a hard core fisherman years back.

I wondered if that's what it was.  I've never seen it up close, but I've seen it on TV.  Only ever been fly fishing once - Christmas Eve up in the mountains near Whistler BC.  I'll never forget it.  Would like to try again, during salmon season, but I can't see it happening anytime soon.  Sea fishing is my thing, although I haven't even seen my boat this year :/

I haven't been fishing in over a year now. Between working my day job and doing my writing and illustrating... while trying to make time for my wife and family... fishing has just gone by the way side of things.
