This is a commission piece. I drew the image out beforehand and then pained it in a monochromatic color scheme. I then applied thin layers of oils on top. please allow at least 1 month to finish a custom oil painting.
I need a good detailed photograph to work from. first I draw it to scale on the canvas. then I paint it in a gray scale. after it dries, I apply thin layers of oils over and let it dry. I finish it with a varnish and frame.
