  • Artist: Xx-Know Your Onion-xX
  • Description: This was a mixed media study for my 2d design class in college. Chalk pastels and Coffee splatters in the background. The face was a transparency of a photo I took and painted over with Acrylic. I used Glow in the dark and florescent paint in the clouds and Mica flakes on the face and clouds. Yes it does glow in the dark and under a black light =)

  • I think this is amazing.
    it is really, really creative...
    i like the way you made the hair move,
    and i like the coffee splatters.
    I disagree with Daemon-whatever...
    i think that the stuff coming out of
    her mouth is pretty damn cool.
    in a... wierd way.

  • wow. very intense piece. the emotion is present, and it adds more interest to the piece. Also, liked how you feathered the hair in strands, makes it flow into the background and seem more native.

  • awesome.
    i would consider doing something different with the green-yellow stuff spewing from the mouth. at this point, it is unclear whether it is a smoky or liquid material, and if you picked one and carried that all the way through, this piece would be phenomenal.
