Title: Reaching Out
Pairing: Spock and Kirk
Rating: PG, though probably not work safe 'cause it's *slash*
Medium: oil on canvas board
Dimensions: 12"- h x 9"-w

Finally finished this a while back and thought I'd post the initial underpainting as well as the final version. This painting debuted at KiSCon and sold.


This was the sketch--



And the final version. Thanks for looking!

Awww, that's lovely! And it's interesting to see how it progressed!

Nice expressions too!

Thank you! I hope you've been doing well. I've not been around LJ for a long time due to RL stuff and need to start checking in with folks before the stuff hits the fan again.

Take care and thanks for commenting!

As much as I don't do ST, this pic is beautiful. So touching and you can just feel the emotion.

I'm working my way backwards through these *g*
Thanks for posting the underpainting: its fascinating to see the progression. Spock doesn't change too much but Kirk looks slightly different between the two (you changed the shading around his mouth?), and I love the final colour version.

LOL! Love your icon! Thanks for the lovely comment! I'm so glad you liked it. And I started reading ST fic when I saw you had recommended some a while back--I had a minute and saw that. Next thing I know, I'm doing ST fan art. Not helping me do more SGA, but I'll get back to John and Rodney. :-) I *really* need to see what gorgeous stuff you've been up to recently.

Oh, wow, that's just stunning. I love seeing the underpainting, too -- it's fascinating how much the color and detail work changes it.

I'm really drawn to their hands and eyes. *happy sigh*

Thank you, Hon! I'm sorry I've been so out of touch. I get so far behind due to RL and end up staying there. Which is why I've posted so many things at once--I've got a few minutes and thought I should.

I want to see what you've been doing--still doing SGA? And gorgeous John drawings? Can't wait to see!

Take care and thanks for your wonderful comment!! :-) I'm so glad you liked this. :-)

I have to say that of all three pieces you posted, this is my favourite, even though I'm not in the ST fandom. But I just love everything about it, the colours, the emotions... lovely work, as usual!

I've seen a lot of very fine 'people' paintings, but I doubt I've seen any that captures the likenesses of the subjects like yours does. I am totally amazed, and I encourage you to do more and share more - especially paintings of the 'Torchwood' (Jack/Ianto) persuasion.

Thanks so much for sharing your awesome talent with us. :):)

I am *so* in love with this! I'd have this framed and on my apartment wall if I could, friends and family be damned!

The colours, the poses, the expressions. . . all so beautiful! I especially love paintings where you can actually see brush strokes, it always adds to the overall expression I think. A++ all around!

And seriously, if you ever decide to make prints of this please let me know! (though since the original has been sold that might be hard to do I guess)
