On wood? Interesting idea, and very well done!

Indeed! It is a commonly used surface for many painters due to its super-smooth surface. It is like painting on glass.

Even if AK might be your primary inspiration in many details of your work, it's amazing how you're working to develop something. Very few people starts with something unique, most of what we know is from somebody else and then we grow our styles to be our own. I honestly can see how AK awakes your curiosity, but I can also see bits of lets say, Camilla D'Errico (for the helmets), the dolls from Marina Bychkova and the expressions and weird angles from Lori Earley, but your work is your own in the end.

Keep up with finding your unique voice, because you're very very talented =)

Thank you so much! Though I admire Audrey, I think and develop paintings completely aside from her, and her paintings have little influence on my style. This one just happens to work people up for some reason, but I do not see anything other than a few similarities (the lining and the wood). She and I have always had a similar look, but I assure everyone my drawings and paintings are far from copies. Her work inspires me no more or less than any of my other favorite artists and I think she and I stand apart in many ways. Camilla is a fabulous artist as well! But so are my friends Jel Ena, Christina Lank, Alice Savage, Dika Toolkit, Elfandiary, William Rose, Jeremy Beswick, Glenn Arthur, and so many more. We all pull inspiration from one another but we respect each other enough not to copy and I would never rip off another artist. I think my other drawings and paintings set me pretty far apart from Audrey Kawasaki, this one just happens to be similar to some of her paintings the same as a few of her paintings are similar to James Jean, Stella H, and so on. I appreciate your view and your deeper look into this :) Some people on here are out for blood! Sheesh.

hehehe I just honestly named my own inspirations, I'm still learning about lots of artists but I know perfectly where you're going with your words, there are many many artists in this little world and some of them are breathtaking! They inspire us to try something different that at first might show exactly who our inspiration was, but then all the styles blend into one and that's our own =) I have to check the artists you name so I can make my list of inspirations bigger =D DA life is like this I guess, I got a line a few months ago where somebody said that I was some kind of pervert (referring to my zombiefied my little ponies) It was sooo much for the lolz! Big hugs! Gratz for the DD!

Definitely check them out, you will not be disappointed! Also, look up Red Siren Artist Collective. It's a collective I am a part of and there are quite a few amazing talents in there! I named a couple above, but there are more. Blows my mind what some of these artists can do. DA is a much more harsh and negative enviroment than most other sites, I must say. Seems to be full of a lot of angry young people out for blood D: But, it does help you build some thick skin which I think is quite important. There are many works of art out there that I do not particularly like, I just don't see the point in telling that artist how I feel about their work. Seems counterproductive and slightly hurtful. I just choose not to go there.

Keep up the good work!!! I respect that you do not allow others to pierce your armor ;)

XOXO ~ Amy

Most of what I do is quite spur-of-the-moment, haha. This one was drawn after a few other girls with helmets I had been doing for a little while, but she was the only one I wanted to paint at that time.

It's also funny how the person blocked me right after they replied :laughing:
I wasn't offended though, just find the irony and ignorance amusing. :)
