Brilliant of course and I love the glass ball and how it reflects the background scene with the glass and mug ... that's attention to the laws of physics. The extra scene in the mirror in the reflection of the central goblet too, is a little gem! Beautiful and always eye catching.

this is amazing. how do you get the smaller transitions and details and blend off the strokes? do you use air brush or something else other than usual brushes?
Reply

ja5on Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
I use an airbrush for larger areas and just smaller and smaller brushes for the details.

I don't even see a single trace of a brush stroke. Does God herself help you blend these acrylics? I can't even create a simple gradient with acrylics without showing traces of brush strokes.

This is incredibly beautiful! How long did it take to paint this? :D
After seeing this I decided to buy a few shades of acrylics, and they are actually quite fun to work with :D The paint just dries really fast and it is difficult to achieve the same colour shades again..

This one took about 48 days. Acrylic is really hard to master, it takes a long time!
