Done?

The full color version of the aforementioned Christ statue in Prague. I was trying a new digital technique that I think I like. I work at it until it's looking pretty good then I use a filter to blur the entire thing. This keeps my structure but looses a lot of the ugly lines so I can go back into it cleaning edges and linework. I also used this on the drawing exercise below.

Also, thanks to the talented Varvara Harmon for tagging my blog.

Looks amazing, but I do not agree about lines being ugly. Anyway thats up to your style, and the work still is impressive, so I guess I should say nothing else..:D

Very Nice David.As I said before, I am a big fan of your drawings. I like the soft smooth look of these but, I am also a sucker for some texture.

Very nice - you somehow made the robe look like marble and cloth at the same time. Neat!

it works really really well, this new technique seems excellent, though I wonder if i do prefer when you get more lousy...
I can't tell...
may be when you'll show some more works done this way.

I also can't wait to see your next oil paintings.
