Art for Brille!

Title:Just the Thing
Gift for: brille
Artist: amkave
Rating: G
Fandom: Bandom - MCR
Warnings: None
Artist's Notes:brille requested so many interesting things it was difficult to choose. I went with MCR just because I could work from lots of source material. The original is about 28x23inches and it is acrylic on treated fabric (after the artist reveal, if you want the original painting, let me know, I'll mail it to you). Please note - because of the size of the original I don't have the capability of scanning an image that big, and so had to settle for a photograph. Which is less than ideal, and for that I am sorry.
Summary: You can't have part without the whole.

Oh gosh, this is gorgeous. *_* I really like Frank & Gerard's expressions, and Bob has this amazing gradient thing going on with his hair & beard. ;) The overall composition is just lovely, too, with the band at the bottom - I really like sketchy Mikeyway, in particular. Lovely work!

The sketchy Mikeyway was one of my favorite parts! Especially with his tee-shirt in Japanese. Thank you so much!

This is really cool! I like the composition a lot, and the use of black. :)

Thank you - black was kinda an obvious choice, but I agree it was very effective!

Wow, did you do the sketch in acrylic with a pen? It's so fun and light, perfect complement to the heavy, rich, gorgeous colors above it. The red-haired guy in particular is amazing. The highlights in his hair and the brightness is beautiful.

Thank you so much - it was a combination of tools, actually. And yes, it is acrylic.

OH. MY. GOODNESS!! I am totally over the moon, you have no idea! This is the first time I've ever gotten art as a gift and let me tell you, you are setting the bar so high!!

The piece itself is stunning, composition and colours and I am so excited that it is done in actualfax concrete paint and canvas, wow! I loooove the style that you've drawn the boys in: Frank and Gerard are smirking little adorable smirks and then Bob is just glowing in the centre! And I think it's super neat that the figures at the bottom are sketchier as thought they're in motion, playing their little hearts out, awww.

so yes thank you thank you THANK YOU for this beautiful artwork: I can't WAIT to find out who you are so I can thank you even more profusely!! Hearts!

This is all made of awesome, but I really love Bob, there in the middle, with his awesome golden soft beard, and bright blue eyes, and that toothpick, hee!

I really like the chalk outline-style effect of the bottom half.

OH WOW! I was thinking okay you know, three portraits, very nice very good, and then I scrolled down and there was the concert scene, and it just made the picture that much better. It works so so well and I love the vibrant white lines against the black. there's so much energy in them and it contrasts so well against the the calmer look of the figures.

I like the combination of the portraits with the crowd scene, and I like the expression of, um, the dude on the left. Very cute.

Thank you so much! And yeah, I like "the dude on the left" too - LOL!
