Very nice! The colors all work extremly well here, esp the skin. Good work on the facial expresion, those are always really hard to do. :)

I love how all your paintings feel very old fashioned, like the masterpieces hanging in art museums! :D You oil paint beautifully.

It's beautiful. You look so young and vaguely surprised. Great job on the candles, I can practically feel their melting heat. :)

wow! that is really beautiful! I like that you clearly have the ability to paint photo-realistically yet there is still something ethereal and unusual about this piece - distorted by expression. awesome! :aww:

Ooooo thats the first time anyone has used the word photo-real to describe my work, thank you so much :hug: you made my day!

very beautiful painting, sincere and honest. You painted yourself very well, because it is easy for audiences to identify with the portrait as someone who is real and convincing.
