Resounding Wave by IzzyMedrano Resounding Wave by IzzyMedrano
I love this one because I went pretty whimsical. And I think it was successful in that way. There are some value problems, but his funny lil snake face more than makes up for it....


LOVE HIM!

I got the card because the art looks amazing, one of my favorite images. why you have izzy as your name?

Ok, that works, I though it was a nickname that had deep meaning.
lolz.
reason I though that was because all other cards have first and last name for all the artists, except - Daarken

I Like your work. It appears to have most impact with less effort. Images look effortless, and detailed at the same time.

You, sir, have any art books for sale?

Disagree about value problems. I really like the subtle contrast range. It really is the thing that made me fave it.

It makes me laugh. You kind of don't expect the funny face on the creature when just looking at the full image itself, but when you realize it you just can't help but laugh. That aside, I like this piece alot, particularly the muted colors. You captured motion really well too and I can get a sense of the panick this guy must be feeling. [Glad I'm not him.]
