Two sides to everything by ToolKitten Two sides to everything by ToolKitten
as far as concepts go, this was something special that i really enjoyed doing. you color a cover, whats behind them? not too often you get to explore this.

lines and inks by al rio

colors by me.

no critiques publicly please, i encourage you to send any critiques you have with a note.

these are covers for issue #40 of grimms fairy tales.

anybody want golden eggs for easter?

see stuff like this really amazes me. like yes i could say how much i like the sexy sensuality behind each lady, but to me as an artist i LOVE the contrast between the dark and light, the personality of the lady stays the same yet the mood changes so well when it transverses to the next scene. I see so much of that created in your work and it really is beautiful quality and amazing balance. very good job!

You know, you always say you don't want critiques publicly
But what I don't understand is what is there to critique?
Your work is excellent. I think you shade wonderfully and you're amazing with lighting
Personally, I love it

Wow, this is a really breathtaking painting and a beautiful concept. The two angles showing what she's hiding, with the alternate light in each, makes a wonderful unique effect!

Wicked cool. I love the way the lighting changes everything; the way the skin changes, the difference in the clouds. And I love the way the hair glows on the left.

Reminds me of when I drive at sunset. In front of me, it'll be bright and sunny and my rearview mirror will already show night, or vice versa. I like it when that happens.
