I just love acrylics, and adore what you do with them. Your computer stuff is amazing, but there is an immediacy and visceral 'touch' to traditional art that is hard to match. Having said that, Monocyte is incredible. How much of that series is purely CG? Is there a traditional element as well?
Thanks for the inspiration. My (very different from yours!) art is better for my having seen and been moved by yours.

Acrylics are really hard and a pain in the ass to work with, but this is really great.

Why do you feel you're hating acrylics?

They either dry to fast, or I am sitting around waiting for a layer to dry. I am a oil guy thought and thought. I just want to learn how to do a few things in acrylics so I have some education to them.

The fast drying time can be a pain. If you're wanting acrylics to behave more like oils you can get a gel retarder medium that slows drying time. :)

Awesome painting. Great style, mood, and energy. How long did it take and what size is this? For hating acrylics you sure did an incredible job with them.
