Hummmm... another original piece!

A few days ago i received a nice gift in the mail. Haven't even thanked you, Monsieur enVide... thanks.
I'm trying to replace my works scattered trough the house with some of my personnel collection, trying to frame them also, and that as made me work with a bit of arts & crafts. This was part of a twenty something years old frame.

Portrait - Mrs. Luisa da Mata

Oil and golden leaf on canvas

Its been a while since i worked on a full oil portrait. Tried a little bit at the beginning, not quite knowing where to go, but decided to work once again with golden leaf in the background. Since i'd the chance, i record the different stages of the work, just so i can remember experiences, and parts of the painting process/progress, well... nothing new here.

Sacred Skull Tattoo

Hello... welcome to 2013, and my 2nd late post of the year.

So, as some of you who have tattoos may know, it becomes an addiction... I've done my first after 5/6 years planing it, the second one after 5 years, and its been just over half a year since I've got it... and immediately wanted more. After some sketches, these ones are at the moment the most close I've been of nailing them... yet, I'll keep sketching a little more, just to have certain of the finishing picture.

P.S.: I'm aiming for my left ribs.
