So it took me well over a month before I could even stop working on this piece, I obsessed and lost a lot of sleep over this guy but I'm in love with it and its one of my favorite pieces yet. Its all acrylic paint on a 10" DIY Teddy Troop with removable helmet. it is for sale in the Shop! right now so if you fancy it as much as I do head over there. The countless hours and days I refused to put the paint brush down paid off and I hope you all love it as much as I do!

"Don't tell them you can walk on water or they may drink your blood". This is my interpretation of the lyric from the song Sacrilege from AFI's new album Crash Love that came out today. By the way, the album is amazing, go buy it! I really enjoyed the way this turned out and had fun working on it, and Ive always pulled so much inspiration from their music which is so dear to me and has been for years. Acrylic on 11x14 canvas.
