Napoleon Pig by faxtar Napoleon Pig by faxtar
For my Materials and Techniques II Class. First I inked the lines, then painted with watercolors (lots of layers), then I added an Ageing Varnish, then a Cracking Varnish, then a thin layer of Olive Green oil paint, then I rubbed some of the oil paint off before it dries. The picture is alittle blurry because I took it with a digital camera. Its too glossy to scan it in the scanner. Inspired by George Orwells 'Animal Farm' where a pig is named Napoleon.

Isn't it against one of the commandments for animals to wear clothes?

Hey--
For honors, we are supposed to create a campaign video for one of the charactes. I was wondering if you'd mind my using this photo of your painting in it? :flirty: It would be shown in class only-- not published online or shown anywhere else.
Thanks! :D

Sure. I think that falls under fair-use [link] under "commentary, criticism, research, teaching, scholarship" but thanks for asking anyway.
