This is sick. Wish I could've seen it in person. Maybe at Spring Show. Really good piece, man. What paper did you use?

Allen Song said...

Thanks for your comment, Gintah. I look forward to checking out your Selfless Gene Painting. The paper I used is BFK White. It's a great paper for all mediums. See you in class bro.

Hey Allen, hehe, I got to see this in person. I already expressed my appreciation in person too, so I'm not saying it again, kidding. Anyway, did you bump up the contrast? I thought the bright area just looks slightly overly dazzling, but that's my only crit. Great work!

Great painting Allen! Are you going to do a series of these "gene" series? You can do the crazy gene, the caring gene, the massively tall and short gene. And when you get to the "sexy" gene, you don't have to ask, yes I will pose for you!
