SHOGUN

19 October, 2006


Here is a self-promotional piece i did for the book SHOGUN by James Clavell. I'm pleased with the image, though I think i should tighten it up a little bit more. I did try to keep it loose initially because i was constantly trying to view it from afar, (where it looked nice and clean), oh well, still learning how to paint.

Man I love this piece, and as Caleb said the sky is amazing. I have one comment I feel that the piece is bottom heave instead of my eye to fall on the guys face it goes onthe bottom right corner. But the colors are awesome. Nice.

Awesome painting Park. It really demonstrates a sophistication of painting that I knew you posessed. You're letting the underpainting show through in all the right places - and its loose enough and tight enough....... just perfect. You should definately continue with oils. I do agree with Alex though - somethings odd about the cropping at the bottom.

i think it might be because of that heavy diagonal line created by the kite thing and the string and the arm. I guess if that would have been broken up it wouldnt lead the eye so heavily towards the bottom. I love them clouds though and agree with everything Ted said. Ok I gotta go paint my ass off now!!
