Industrial art / Dadaism....... That took some love, lost, perhaps........ :D
It's Your rusty right hand......
That is art, normal American looking Dude...... :D
I am seriously impressed....
You do realize, that, in the perfect state of rust, You must preserve it ?
Oil based, or fixated ? Or will You let her rust ?.......... Read,.... rest.........
You made this out of love. I do hope she is still alive.................
But all I am doing here is guessing with a bottle of Vodka............

Anyway, congratulations on a masterpiece.



I'm a surfer myself, but I can seem to find the sea............lol............Where is my Vodka....

Thanks for checking out my Metal Maiden sculpture! I have not stopped the rusting process... it is MUCH darker brown now, and there are lines where rain water has run down. Keep creating your pen drawings - you do beautiful work!

Honestly, You don't look like an artist at all, really.....:D
My own face, legs and one arm are full of metal plates, but I'm not a maiden.lol.....
I like to erode drawings, using coffee, tea, bleach, alcohol or whatever.
That takes heavy cotton paper, above 200 gr.

So, I look like a bouncer, and You look like a teacher or accountant.....
I actually was a bouncer...........:(
I seriously hate it when people are classified by appearance..... :D
But, You should look smudged and confused......Like artists do..........:stare:
But Your ID on DA :spin:......
Have an Iron maiden song............[link] :D

Please, do not consider this an assault on Your personality......It is not.

Haha - you crack me up, AngryBob! I've never had the opportunity of being a "full-time" artist... I've always had to hold my day-jobs down to feed my family. I found that a "professional" appearance has helped me land more jobs... but I can still wear my ratty studio clothes and enjoy smoking a cigar in my studio space.

I'm all about letting the art speak for itself - and not looking for personal attention. I'd rather just fade into the background while the art can be in the spotlight. I create because I HAVE to - I can't sleep if I don't create. I never quite "fit" into the stereotype of what an "artist" should look like or behave like. I choose my own path. :)

You rock, bud.
