new creative piece

this is

Killicutty McGillicuddy and his missing eyes,

it measures 11 x 14 inches using a mix on cotton.
I used to use pencil only for this sort of project. unfortunately
graphite doesn't have the best applications for dark tones
and now I use colored pencil to lay down black.

Pencil is remarkable on smooth paper concerning light
tones, but the more i build up the graphite the more
reflective it becomes , and generally the less smooth it
looks. but boy i think the tones in this piece are pretty
darn smooth.

for my creative works i generally work toward a
focus on a flowing , natural composition with a high
level of contrast for easy viewing. i want my audience
to know exactly what they're looking at - even
though the subject is a bit abstract.

i haven't been finding much time for my own creative
line of art but I'm happy to start the new year off with
this one. Killicutty is my fourth piece in a series of "puddle
people," i use that term because my characters in this
series are curvy, resemble something like smoke or water.

well anyway I hope you find some feeling in this piece, if you love
it or hate it, it means i've succeeded by making you feel something

Pet Portraits by Matt

Here is a bit of a gallery of my work the past year. I have
a lot of experience with portraits. I love drawing
faces and I've been studying them since 2006.

 In 2015 I began working with animal subjects as a bit
of a side business. I tattoo in Doylestown fulltime and
art on paper has a special place in my heart.

All commissions are completed on thick quality paper (bristol) and
most are 9 x 12, my preferred size for these. I use colored
pencil to complete the art.

If you are thinking of commissioning me for a portrait
please consider your best references. It's difficult
to work with grainy photographs with poor lighting -
I always recommend photos taken outside in the sunlight!
