The Tribe Kids by Wildweasel339 The Tribe Kids by Wildweasel339
The slim girl often won our foot races,
She would always look back just to see our faces.

Our race this morning was near complete,
when the water began to churn beneath our feet.

She mistook our warning cries for cheers,
A tragedy which left us all in tears.

Gosh. That's not the least bit terrifying.
And I'll never go swimming again.

Impressive storytelling. The poem fits the picture brilliantly and gives the painting more dept. I feel sorry for that girl.

Lane - absolutely amazing! Love everything about this. Such an original piece and the accompanying poem is just brilliant (sad, but brilliant). Well done. How long does something like this take you? Peace.

My first thought is... in a world where creatures like that exist, what in the majestic fuck are they doing within 100 square light years of the water!?

Your technique is amazing, but what's technique without a strong narrative? Your picture is full of tension and threat. Love it.

I've just looked at your blog and bookmarked it as there are a lot of things to look at. I've already got the James Gurney book and colour and light and think its time to get it out again.

Thank you once again and best wishes for the future.

Damn, this is excellent!! Love the lighting of the children to the dullness of the backdrop.

And the story is less but enough to emphasise the picture.

Again, a masterpiece!!
