Zero-Gravity Jabba complete


This would've been done a month ago had I not stripped the paint off it due to a mistake. My approach to painting this piece was to mimic the color and painting style applied in a piece done by artist Paul Komoda. The piece is titled, " Faceless": 

  I was actually making great progress, that is until I made the mistake of going in with some burnt umber to shade here and there, the beautifully transparent blue and violet tones I'd applied previously mutated into green. That changed everything...It wasn't that it looked bad, but it just didn't look like Paul's painting anymore at that point, so I stripped the paint and started from scratch...a month later. Two days before I needed to ship it across the country to my friend, Norman Meyers. But, as in all mistakes, it was a learning experience.
