OMG!!!! Thank you thank you thank you Akiko-san!!! You are so generous to share your work in progress. We can never replicate your work but now we can see how the magic unfolds. Maybe you should write a book!
Wow. It's amazing how much work goes into your paintings. Thanks for showing us - it gives a deeper appreciation to what the eye sees.
Akiko, these scans are wonderful. I have always wondered about your process, and now I see how precisely and confidently your work unfolds. Thanks for the peak behind the scene.
Yay, a WIP!!! Wow, thank you Akiko for sharing that! I love seeing how other artists work. This is pug is amazing. As fascinating and incredible as the eye is, I can't stop staring at that claw. It really adds a lot to the work! Absolutely beautiful, Akiko! I agree with Sheila, you should write a book! :-)
Beautiful work...very amazing work... thank for your art!!!
Wow! It's fascinating to see how this unfolds, especially to a complete non-artist. Thanks for sharing how you create your masterpieces.
I enjoyed seeing the progression...but, what caught me is that you are a PUG LOVER!! PUG LOVERS UNITE!! So, I just had to drop by and say that I love the pug art...!!
Wow! Amazing to see it all come together like that. I agree with Sheila, you should write a book!
Akiko, thanks so much for sharing your work process.I agree with Sheila, it's really amazing to see how it unfolds. You are such an expert at getting the feeling of dimension and adding highlights and fur. Just when I think it looks done you also take it that extra step further which really makes it pop, so it is an instructive demo also.
I can't but share Sheila's enthusiasm! Thank you for posting the steps of your work, that increases my admiration.And great ACEO, really.Best regards,Carolina
Thank you all so much!! I'm glad that you enjoyed my WIP. An idea of writing a book is a great compliment! Maybe I will think about that when I get better in painting first.Love you all. :)
Fantastic! Thank you sooooo much for showing the process. #4 where the eye comes into focus just blew me away. Thought you were done at #7 but you took it 2 steps further which gave it that Akiko final touch of perfection. You are freakin' awesome!
Akiko what a treat! It's wonderful to see your effective process thank you, you generous artist! Ok how do you do it again? :) You rock!
Gwen and Erika, thank you! You girls rock!
Wow, you should definitely put pen to paper... lovely technique you have, and one that obviously produces very realistic paintings!
Wow! Truly instructive to see how you do this. You are amazing, Akiko. I also love seeing this on the paper towel background, because it re-enforces the scale...meaning how relatively small they are. I concur about the book idea.
It is so fasinating seeing the painting come to life, Akiko - thank you for sharing your process. Outstanding painting!
