Glad that you replied to my comnemt - my glorious plan can finally be put into motion! Sadly we'll then have to rely on the postal services of our respective countries before the plan can finally be realised. A potentially fatal flaw, really...I'm off to work (again...) soon so this is going to be another short message. It's my new job today (the one that I don't officially start until next week) but I was at the library yesterday so I've got all the brain power of a stunted turnip. I'll be doing [Expand]

I was just wondering, if you would mind if I translate some of your posts and repost them in my blog at son4apon4a,livejournal,com, as I find your stuff real inspiring, and it's real bad that russian animators don't speak english... anyway, i'm the greatest fan of the ren and stimpy show, they [Expand]

It is vertical format painting. Giovanni Costa painted young woman whose profession is dancing. She is gracious, nice and elegant in her silk clothes. It is likely that she is standing for her portrait. The Arab Dancer is not so beautiful but highly attractive. Her forehead is beautified by amazing embellishment. I like the color of the work and its composition. It is quite realistic, well-balanced, expresses light sadness and happiness and delight of lively dancer. Giovanni Costa made an expressive [Expand]
