Interesting. John, how do you get the textured effect on this?
BTW, this guy isn't an Obama fan is he?

That's a layer of spackling material layed on masonite board. I applied the goop with a piece of cardboard to get the surface somewhat smooth.
Once it dried, I painted the figure with oil, then covered the whole thing with a thin layer of sienna and ochre.

I don't think he's an Obama fan. My guess is he's a Cretan, not a cretin.
Close, but no cigar. ( :

He's a Minoan, not a moron.

Texture to the extreme! Every time a see a Minotaur image I think of "Time Bandits" and that weirdly surreal fight scene with Sean Connery. This one especially looks like that.

Yeah! Great movie. I always think of the midgets dancing for Napoleon.
