Inner Beauty by Raipun Inner Beauty by Raipun
Finally finished!
Oil on canvas, size: 140 x 60 centimeters

To all of you who might be wondering... I simply wanted to create a mistery around this guy.
That is why i aspired to create a skin that is transparent.
That is also the reason why he is wearing this hooded cape. He is trying to hide that he is not of this world. Or maybe he is just about to reveal that mistery. So yes, I suppose that you can actually see his inner beauty!
But i will leave that in the middle, maybe it is best that you create a story of your own.
Thank you so much for all your wonderfull comments!!!

I absolutely adore this painting! I have a 'thing' for Asian men and when I saw this thumbnail, I thought it was a photo! I only wish I could paint like this. His face is truely beautiful.
I love the little story you put with him; it's intriguing.

A stunning and gorgeous painting!!! He's really a mystery guy ! For me, I see his shape as a key, which can reveal the mystery and beauty within, only when he's ready... BEAUTIFUL!!!

Nicely done! Is the horizontal texture on his chest done manually or did you use a product that actually formed those ridges (like varnish or something)?

although I don't fully understand it, i find this painting extremely beautiful, the man's gaze, his expression are so deep and then you look down and see those colours and shapes on his chest, as if his skin has become tranparent. at first I thought those were his organs, but looking closely you realize they're not. there's something truly mysterious in it, on one side I'd like to ask the artist to explain its meaning to me,one the other side though I like to keep staring at it, wondering what those colours and shapes mean.
