True Blood: Eric and Pam by cogdis True Blood: Eric and Pam by cogdis
Eric Northman and Pam from HBO's True Blood. + Amorphophallus titanum

I was trying to take inspiration from John Singer Sargent - Particularly from: "Portrait of Edouard and Marie-Louise Pailleron" . . . It was very (pleasantly) challenging. I have no idea (yet) how one would try and get a likeness while keeping the paints so soft.

Done in Corel Painter.

You have got an amazing talent here! the Oil paint effect is visually stunning. It looks more like a painting that should be up in a Gallery other than Divant art!

Eric and Pam in a much earlier time. They had an artist to paint this one so it could be put in their house at the time.

Or at least that is what this painting made me think of. Very well done!
