Whisper by lpeters Whisper by lpeters
This piece is a remake of a painting I did a LONG time ago. I always liked the concept and hoped I could do it justice now with more practice under my belt. The idea is that the snake is persuading the girl to do something she wouldn't ordinarily do... The original painting is here [link]

I love the girls expression and the white snakeskin texture catching the light like millions of pearls!

Weird and wonderful! An emotional picture with a lot of meaning- this is what art should be about!

I saw - I was just wondering if there was any significance to it. It kinda looked like Medusa at first

As shared on my Facebook wall:
"This piece is really moving to me right now. It captures such deep concepts in such a poignant way. It's perfect, if anything is."

At the moment I don't have time to put tutorials together.  However I have recently started making quick animated gifs of my process for personal pieces.  You can find the first two on my blog

I love that your work has so much story written into its composition, you do so much more than paint a picture!  This is brilliant, evocative and makes not only visceral but symbolic statements.  I love it, like 1,000 times over.

It makes me think of peer pressure and hazings, of people who are manipulated by the phrase, "If you really loved me, you'd do this..."

The emotion is so true-to-life.

This is so awesome.  The snake is simply beautiful and the concept makes me cringe.  Very emotive and very well done.

Wow, it's like a surreal, twisted take on Eve, except instead being tempted by the serpent to eat forbidden fruit, she's being mind warped into eating a mouse. Pretty gruesome but very effective.:fear: :highfive:
