Brothers Will Fight by phillustrator Brothers Will Fight by phillustrator

Whenever, wherever, by any means. Brothers will fight. This painting, done for a friend who has two boys, also relates back to me, being the middle of three boys.

pastel on paper

Awesome stuff man. I'm the oldest of three brothers, so I can definately relate. My brothers and I had all out battles at times. This is a really great piece. Imagery is very creative and colors couldn't be better.

I can totally relate to the message in the painting! My sister and I fight A LOT!! And occasionally my brother and I will gang up on her. It's pretty fun, actually.^^

Glad you like. I'm sure the same holds true for brother/sister relationships as well. Just not quite as rough. Thanks!

this has almost a native american feel to it.

Someone else said it has a native feel. It's actually a mexican wrestling kind of thing. But read into it how you like.

Believe me, sisters will too! :giggle:

This is a great piece, so colorful and full of detail! The birds are a nice touch to this scene that is probably taking place in the boy's imagination.

The sisters thing is kind of foreign to me, but I'm sure there are plenty of scuffles. Thanks for the comments!

us sisters aren't so innocent either! and we fight dirty:evillaugh:;p

this is utterly amazing!!
i love everything about it, so much detail! i love what looks like their little wrestling outfits, and how tangled up they are, and they even look like they have hold of each others noses
the birds make for a really striking background, them and the sky add so much movement and chaos to what's already going on
takes me back to my childhood, a great picture!:)

I tried to make it appear confusing, with a tangle of limbs that you have to work at to decipher.

thanks. I just delivered it last night. They really liked it. I think I'll go back to a few smaller ones for awhile, then maybe do a big one for our walls. Can't wait to show it to my brothers.
