Re: I finished swirl, comments?

really well done but colors aren't my cup of tea.
I like a good balance between clear and dark paintings,yours have only clear paintings.A small dose of black would bring this beast to life.
Still well done.

Re: I finished swirl, comments?

No offense intended here, but I'm not sure that will sell as a "swirl". The pattern achieved is less "swirl" than "splattered" I guess, for lack of a better word. It's interesting and there will likely be someone out there who really likes it, but I'm not sure if it's really in the category of most of the other "swirls" being shown around here.

Of course, as has been rightfully established, swirling is an art form, and as such, if you find a group of people that hate it and another group that love it, then I'd call it a success. Good luck with it.

Looks like finger painting, but the colors go nice.

The colours are not good and the swirl is very poor. Sorry

Messy. Don't like it. Try to make them clearer. I ain't no expert to give advice, though.

My latest swirl with clearcoat on it:

@dccomp
It's messy but I like it nonetheless,
I'd put some dark green Pups in it and a dark green Ibby logo on it, to tie in with the cavities.

@Astra
yours is messy as well, but in a different way, I like it...cool colour combo as well...a bit of pop-art. I'd put some Red/White zebras in there, to link the red top bout with the red below the trem.

As a rule, I prefer the messy ones over the "perfect" Z-shape that you tend to see on a lot of ATD type swirls.

Dipped too soon for shore... or too much thinner. But i cant say it's ugly or bad... just something different.
