Quinceanero no3


In parts of Latin American culture, when a boy turns 15 he marks his transition to adulthood by celebrating his quince años. Part of the joy of this event is that he gets to wear the most beautiful dress he’s ever seen.

  2. I must say your art is always brilliant, especially when the boys are wearing prom style dresses, you capture their expressions so wonderfully and the boys look so happy, well done.

  4. I'm really sorry to say this Eve because I like your work but your teenage males look like men in their mid-30's. Boys in that age doesn't have that much muscles.

    And if you take a look at the modern androgynous men, they are not muscular, rather semi-anorexic skinny. Modern men are not going to look like Arnold Swarzenegger in drag. They are not going to the gym. People with caveman features will be deselected in favor of guys with fine facial features.

    I don't want to be rude, just give you some inspiration. What about a very skinny boy model in his early 20's with a chubby but rich older woman? Could you draw that?

    I would love to see you draw some lean, slim-faced, big-eyed almost Elf-like men.

    1. I don't mind constructive criticism, Anonymous.

      You may be right about the teenagers, but a skinny boy in a dress and long hair could very easily be mistaken for a girl, whereas I want it to be obvious that he's male.

      I have never painted an 'Arnie'. Most men look distinctively male without ever stepping foot in a gym, and stronger features would not disappear without a process of 'breeding' that is too off the wall for my world. I normally paint average-looking men who remain recognisably male even when dressed in 'feminine' ways.

      Everyone has their own fantasy and my work won't align with them all. But in time, I will certainly attempt types I haven't painted before.
