Predatory Nature by Damalia Predatory Nature by Damalia
The second version of "Bloodthirsty," this time with an underlying message. The predator characters are now upper-class folk in an upper-class club/bar setting, and looking quite a bit more aggressive, still drinking blood. The message is about how the upper-class preys on and takes advantage of the lowerclass (here represented by the prey species icons in the beer taps). I'm really quite happy with it.

This is a new technique for me--combination acrylic and oil paint, on board, 30" long.

absolutely stunning, the message is clear, humorous in a way and very well laid out, enough of each character is displayed to get the feeling of tense bloodthirsty carnivores! again stunning piece, so glad you re-ran the idea, i like the original too but this just appeals straight away to me!
