Took my time on her. I've been really busy, plus there was so much detail to add in here.

I lost count of how many layers there are on this. I'm just lucky the computer never crashed on her!
*is thankful*



This looks really nice. I especially like the form of the arms and the highlighting of her hair. The only problem I have is the excessive watermarks. There is no reason why there should be three rather erroneous looking chinese stamps, a signature, a graphic watermark, AND a long title and copyright at the bottom. It completely detracts from the entire piece. Why did you put so many?

BlackUniGryphon responds:

Actually you are incorrect. These are not watermarks, they are Chinese stamps.

In traditional Chinese art there can be any number of stamps on a piece which are meant to stand out.

Chinese systems of doing things are by Taoism, and not the Greek Logical way of thinking. Actually this is ENTIRELY correct, and you have misunderstood.

Plus, the fact that SOOOOOOOOOOOOO many kids steal my artwork.

The signature is mine, and I traditionally always use this.

Copyrights are just correct and prudent business sence to legally protect the artist's work.

I have used here 3 types of stamps:
1 is a my name, the other is a poetic type of slogan, and also a logo stamp.

My teacher in China could have even more stamps than this on his work. And, when asked about why, he would just say: Of course it should be this way.


Like your art! You really have tallent!

BlackUniGryphon responds:

Thank you.
