Karma Chameleon by jkearney Karma Chameleon by jkearney
It feels like I haven't posted anything in a while (I guess it's only been a week, though) Anyway, I painted a chameleon! I worked pretty hard on making that thing look good, and I'm proud of him :D Although I probably could have spent a bit more time on the details and the background. XD This is painted with watercolor on 140 lb paper (9 x 12 inches)

Firstly I love the amount of detail in your brushstrokes in this. =)
The chameleon looks very realistic and well... obviously camoflagued. :aww: I also love the facial features of the guy LOTS. Especially the nose. You're really quite good with faces.

I think the reason I like it so much is because it reminds me of David Bowie in a wierd way, and I'm definitely afraid and angry toward Mr. Bowie.

I suppose you could call it infatuation, I'm not sure...

Great piece of work. I like the flesh tones and the "dirty green" colors incorporated throughout the entirety of this piece.

Brilliant.

Ah, why are you angry toward David Bowie? (Thank you for the comparison though :D)

My hatred of Mr. Bowie has stemmed from childhood, when I was scarred for life by his...erm...performance in Labyrinth. Scared the fuck out of me. It progressed when, years later, I saw him on SNL. I didn't realize he was the same guy, but he scared me a LOT when I saw him, and I said, "The only other person who scares me like that was that guy in the movie Labyrinth" and it turned out to be the same guy....

...ever since then, I've sort of had this strange infatuation with hating him.

I was in love with him after I saw the performance in labyrinth!! :D But sometimes when you're a kid strange things can scare you. I had a nightmare about Ferris Bueller after I saw it for the first time XD

Ferris scared you? Awwe.

I dunno. Sometimes I don't know whether I REALLY like Bowie or hate him entirely.

*laughs* It's wierd.

Oooh, what a neat color scheme. It's sort of a cross between gold and green... I can see the bishie having some sort of fabulous stone palace in the woods, populated by chameleons. :D The texturing on the chameleon is excellent!

Thanks! Yes, I used plenty of gold and green...I should have used red, too! (red gold and greeeen, red gold and greeeen!) Ehh...I'm pretty bad at making jokes.
