Oil on Rainboot


This one was fun to work on. I was recently asked to donate some artwork to an upcoming charity event. Only catch was, it had to be done on a pair of rainboots! So I sketched up a couple of characters, gessoed the boots, and painted away. I thought it was a nice opportunity to be able to show both sides of the character on either side of the boot. These will be auctioned off at the event. I have absolutely no idea what they'll sell for.

excellent paintings! quite uncommon!

funny part is that at first, I read "rainbot", I thought it was a brilliant idea and then I was wondering what a rainbot will look like... then the pictures appeared and it was clear that I need some good sleep...

but excellent work anyway, Marco!
bravo!
