Off the Wall by Lizzy-John Off the Wall by Lizzy-John
Soon as I thought of the phrase 'off the wall', I was reminded of the old 7-up game for sega genesis I used to play a lot, 'Cool Spot'. Had to use it. Anybody played that? Good times... :)

anyway, I painted most of this maybe...a month ago? Can't quite remember. but I decided to take a small break from commission work and finish it up today. Always wanted a go at the whole wall painting within a painting thing... even if this one in particular is just a bit emo.

Hope you dig. Hope it doesn't burn your eyes out, at least. Done in Painter 9.5, critique and comments are always appreciated.

I love the contrast between the Painting on the wall and the figure in the foreground. Exceptional!

cool, reminds me of a david jon kassan portrait.

This is SO GOOD.  And Cool Spot was a surprisingly great game, for a marketing tie-in.  :)

This image explains how I was already watching you. This still comes up on my screen saver from time to time, as it pulls out any digital image I enjoyed enough to save.

Very lifelike, I had to click the full view to see if she was real or not. Amazing! Thanks for sharing.

This is the first art i saw from you, five years ago! Woo, time runs fast! I was starting to draw in a more realistic style and with another account i asked for some advice from you, you have been pretty nice and helpfull, now, 5 years later i finally bought my first Wacom tablet, so i'll start to put in action the things you taught me, i hope someday i can be at least 10% as good as you are, and even so you seem not to log in your account anymore, hope somehow you see my future drawings, miss you and your one of a kind style, you are one of the greatest for me, come back someday!

omg, it's soooo unbelievably fantastic! I love that the "sketchy' part of your drawing would be awesome piece by itself, and then you put this girl, who is just realistic and 3D! I can't stop looking at her chest (not for obvious reasons, but because the clothing is soooooooo greeeeat). And her left hand? So plastic, so real! :heart:
Also, I love the idea of person + drawing on wall interaction! *excited*

The thing I like about this picture is how the heart on her shirt is the same color as the creatures skin color. You feel that they are connected. Love the picture overall!

I loved the creature painted on the wall.

Jesus, i haven't even HEARD anyone talk about the old 7 up mascot in YEARS. i played the game back on Sega Channel (you know, that epic thing they based ALL online gaming on years later?) I wonder if i can find it again, maybe keep it with my original nes copy of metal gear and my battletoads collection....

Oh also, amazing pic.

Wow. This is just great. The yellowish shadow makes it brilliant.
Reluin Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011
Love all your different textures here. You did so well making the figure and the background both look great but very distinguishable, and making both pop. <33

You're blow'n me away. Your art is incredible.
darkprincessstar Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2010
It looks kinda like the girl is hiding from the monster by being in reality instead of in the painting...but that one snake's onto her. Very inspiring :)
Omegathree Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010
