Laura, I just recently delved into admiring digital art, and your work fascinates me, the beauty of it. Your eye for details in fashion design, fabric textures, and accessories; the combination of color and lighting. Simply gorgeous! The background settings puts your characters in context and makes it look as if they are in a portrait. As if, one could almost use your work as proof that they do or did once roamed this earth, swam its seas, or flew its skies.
As IT professional, on this site, the digital is my world. The art, not so much! I've never really step back and fully examined the creative side of the tool that sets on our desks'. Your journal log regarding commissions tells me, that you are both artsy and logical. You inspire me!
