I totally appreciate the feedback!! Again..I am just firing into the trees and seeing what falls to the ground as far as these velvets. Robb said it well..it's all about experimenting. I learn with each piece what to do and what not to do. Anyways..here is the finish of the "Molten Moai".

Just plain AMAZING Thor! It's a Velvet Renaissance! You all have such an open door, I can't wait to see what's on the other side.

The show you guys were talking about really is a must.

DYAM FINE!

Dang THOR!
Way to go nailing velvet in 3-4 paintings!
Could you be more intimidating!?
It's like you were born wearing velvet diapers!
Congrats on pushing it'
AND nailing it!
That lava is insane!

Ok do you suck at anything? LOL!

Amazing, amazing, glad to see you putting your stellar skills to velvet.

It is so cool to see the resurgence to velvet again.

Thanks Robb!!

Now coming from the "Velvis"..that makes my day!! I am hoping to see more of this endless talent on TC get into velvet! There is no one style or approach that is ultimate. Some will struggle more..others may find it a natural transition. In the end though, everyone will learn from each other and have created an unimaginable resurgence. This medium is really the ultimate absence of light and like a dark room where someone says.."Ok..start painting in the air with a light stick".

It makes you ponder all the interesting light sources in our world....or invented worlds. I have so many ideas I wish I could focus on this more and I could be in a room with 50 panels of stretched velvet to get this stuff outa my head. Anyway...if there are any other's out there interested, let's push on a group to study and learn from each other how to get a velvet renaissance that intrigues this generation. Viva La Velvet!!!!

WOW, Tom!!! That is just TOO cool (and HOT)!!!

I can't BELIEVE you just started with this medium and have already progressed to a point where it looks like you've been doin' it for YEARS! Talk about a quick study!

I HATE you! (lol) But I LOVE your talent! And I agree with that post re. the Aurora model art look! A definite compliment in my book. And how cool you had that teacher who had done those Aurora paintings! My "Famous Monsters Kid" nostalgia is going into overload!

Man -- you da BEST! I even geeked out on your very FIRST piece! (I'm a sucker for All Hallows ANYthing!)

Keep up the amazing work, my friend!

Cheers & Mahalo

Paulo

WOW Thor, I can't believe I haven't been over to this "Side" of creating for so Long. Seeing your progress in just a few short months and a few pieces makes it seem So much longer. I really love how you Jumped right in and attacked the media head on. speaking of heads, the Shrunken one on a stake is just mind blowing. Your explanations about painting with light really help me to see More than I would have without it, not being a painter, that light stuff is important. Working with sculpture we work with Shadows all the time and the light brush is an excellent example. I wish I had a light brush and a shadow brush.
Anyway the Stuff you are creating is definitely top shelf and if the latest lava is any indication, you will be an Expert at this very soon if not already.
I Love the matter-of-fact, non caring look on the Moai's face as he just seems to ignore the hot Lava which is about to envelope him. I guess he knows it will only preserve him for another thousand years.
