Random from Favourites

I would like to discuss options/techniques of drawing realistic or at least convincing surface of various types of mud, clay, quicksand. I am learning to draw them for almost 8 years already (not accounting for my early attempts made long ago). I believe that realistic or even exaggeratedly dangerous-looking mud or quicksand contributes a lot to an impression that an artwork can make. Unfortunately, I have to admit that it takes me a lot of time and many try-and-fail attempts to achieve a result that I want, and a really good-looking stuff is still a matter of chance. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes not. I learn from all artists who draw quicksand pictures, I watch and keep hundreds of photos, and I want to discuss the effective techniques - both traditional art and digital art. More exactly, I want to hear comments and advices about my pictures and I hope that other artists will join the discussion with their artworks.

I want to provide links to some of my works that on my opinion have better mud/quicksand textures than the others. Which of them do you like more and why? Maybe there are better pictures on your opinion? Which of them? What do you suggest to make the texture better?

i just write an average story of me myself in quicksand...

My ideas in general qs are:

1) No fear in sinking in quicksand, but full of pleasure and enjoyment.
2) Immortality; I won't die in quicksand, the quicksand will die by me instead lol...
3) Make antagonists think I am actually sinking to my doom- pretending to be scared and begged to be freed from the mire... Or if sunken, grab 'em by their shirts and pull em in...
4) Controlling the quicksand.
5) all victims shall be rescued by me, I'm jealous of seeing the qs taking people <.<

But I just have fun making qs stories... My mind-writing stories is better than my physical typing... I can type up a story well in my mind :/

I will enjoy sinking...
I will let quicksand take me as I take the quicksand.
I will control quicksand.
I will thrash around and make the quicksand dance!
I will melt and be one with it.
I will breathe quicksand as if water due to my "burning desires" of enjoying soft mud.
I will protect it dearly.

heh, just feel like sharing how much i dying to jump in qs....
for quicksand! ^___^

GREAT!  Glad to hear it.

Now move on darling, move on.

love the quicksand pictures, animations, etc. But I love more muddy hot bare feet getting muddy then being stepped in quicksand. Or barefoot quicksand scenes. Sounds good even at mature sexual content.

uhh i just love hot fetish quicksand artworks. 5- star ^_^
So do I , just love to see someone sinking in quicksand, and to see feet sinking wow very nice, but iI like big soft ladys so seeing fat feet sinking just love it. I have some pics so you should go and see . Marcus
Ooh, I will check that out! :) can't wait for more intense quicksand pictures. Even better in animations or 3D photoshop.
