I just checked out your website. Nice work. I really like your dark themes and color schemes. Do you do those strictly on your computer or how? As a fellow artist, I'm just curious about your medium. I work mostly in charcoal, pencil and occasionally paints. I have a pretty sweet TCM painting I should put on here, but I have it matted and framed so it would be a bit of a project to get it scanned. Oh well, maybe some day in the near future I'll find the motivation. I also had a pretty cool Pulp fiction painting I did, but my room mates dog licked and fucked it all up. (I hate that bitch... literally.)

It's good, better than what I can do, but i'd tone down the blur just a bit. Not much, but some.

It needs blurring to distract from the base-photo, and look more painted.

That's not true at all. Most of my work involves no blurring. I just added the blur to make it feel deep... draw the viewer in more. It's called "Depth of Field". Photographers can use different lenses to get the same effect. I used photoshop and just blurred out areas that are further away and extremely close... leaving the middle ground in focus. Even 3D apps have a DOF (Depth of Field) setting. So... I don't try to make my art "look more painted" because it's not paint. No need for me to "distract" viewers from my work.

Looks awesome, nice work
When choosing between two evils I always like to take the one I've never tried before
