  3. Oh wow, these are so incredible. They are so intriguing... And hey, that first one reminds me a bit of Howl's moving castle, haha.

    Great work, Tran! Eager to see what else you'll come up with!

  4. I've been waiting for the first piece ever since I saw the concept sketch for it. So glad to see it finished, it's so amazing and elegant. Both works are absolutely fantastic! Can I stick a straw in your brain and suck out your talent? Would...would that work?

  17. Oh, I love the subtle changes in the black feathers and the small geometric rhythm you created in the first one. I kinda don't want to say love twice, but the second its too good to not start of the same...I love the gold tattoo/leaves that are enveloping her body, the way they transform from a dress into her skin...Love, Jules

  18. OOOOOH I love the tiny details!

    Do you start with a light acrylic painting aned then do color pencils over it?

  19. wow. I love the way that they both are so detailed. They both look similar to art from the late 60's in the way that they are both so symbolic and for lack of a better word, trippy. the only thing separating them from that is the color scheme and detail.
