Complete and Incomplete by laurart Complete and Incomplete by laurart
So much for not doing "pretty girls" anymore =P

The thing is, I've realized I like my pictures a lot better when I start sketching them. But then I keep "polishing" the images to give them a more finished look and that's when I screw them up. So I decided to try focusing in only some areas and leave the rest "undone". So far I like the result, it looks more expressive.

So that's it, oil on board, 20X30 cm.


Thanks for taking a look :)

I wholeheartedly agree that sometimes the finishing process destroys a picture. This is simply lovely, and wonderfully organic. :love: I am so glad that =OpiateTart featured one of your other paintings so I could find this one! It's like a WIP, tutorial and finished piece all wrapped up together. Phenomenal work! :heart:

Nice job on this!~ the drips really make it seem as if the paint is in motion and this is just a freeze frame of its journey~

I think that my drawings end up looking pretty polished, and then I go, "But oh, it needs a little somithin'!"

And then I add a little somethin', and then I go "HOLY CRAP, that is NOT the somethin' this picture needed!!!"

El color y la expresion del personaje son sublimes, la paleta limitada en contraste con el color de la hoja suma mucho. Me gustan mucho estos experimentos bocetiles/pintados que hicistes.

I hope you don't complete it because its PERFECT the way it is. Bold, sensual. It's like (as I'm sure alot of people have told you) it's leaving a message of whats under it all. =p

Te entiendo! A mí algunos de mis dibujos hasta me llegan a gustar un poquito cuando los estoy empezando xD Con todas esas líneas cruzandose a lo loco..Pero cuando lo estoy terminando sólo pienso que cometí un grave error xD

Y tu trabajo es precioso

Ay si, y es tan frustrante! Uno sabe que una vez que dió esas pinceladas de mas ya no hay vuelta atrás :no:


Asi que ahora ya sabés, tu próximo trabajo dejalo "sin terminar" y va a quedar genial! ;P

Muchas gracias :hug:
