Gus by davidsdoodles Gus by davidsdoodles
Say hello to Gus....Gus is part of a new venture of mine. I finally got back into oils and this time doing what I want to do; my own animal characters in more of a fine art realm. I am so amped on this new path I have taken and enjoying it so much. I did this one @my friend Craig Elliot's studio..... and am now @ the tail end of finishing another one for this series. I have lots to learn but I am enjoying the journey and honoring my practice. This is a 16x20 canvas

Hope you all enjoy.....

From what I've gathered, oils are hard to master, and you seem like you're well on your way.

That looks amazing - part of me is reminded of Bobo the Bear via the Muppets, but there's also a great sense of realism involved, too. Orsums! 8-)

Just well painted isn't it?! Wonderful command of a medium that you profess to be new at. Amazzzzzing! I live in the San Fernando Valley. Do you teach nearby? I notice your ventures/workshops are at L.A. spots: George C. Page museum, Zoo. You remind me to go to the Zoo more than I do (I made a rhyme!) Love your character designs. All the best to you and continued success!-Dan

:( I don't think Gus fits this little guy for a name,. but I can see your resonaing.

HOWEVER this is a very elaborate bear, and this deviation must be faved because I adore people like you who can do these kinds of things with animals, in character design and such.
