Magnificent! Do you find the large size you work at essential to your realism level?

Such remarkable realism. Blows me away... Haven't seen one portraying the elderly so well anywhere before.  Amazing, the way you made the skin on her hand look almost like it's transparent. It is even more beautiful and detailed than a photograph could ever be.... :heart:

Así que toca su hombro sigue siendo tan hermosa, como la ruina de un castillo, una vez majestuosa con un solo precioso muro de piedra aún en pie. Su habilidad con el realismo y, mio dios, pasteles!?! es milagroso. Las personas que no aprecian el realismo en este nivel son sólo envidia de aquellos pocos que pueden ver con el tipo de visión que tiene. Me gustaría poder ver su trabajo en persona. Me gustaría que no estaba cubriendo sus pechos. Venus, en mi opinión, no haría eso.

I don't speak Spanish, I used google translate so, apologies if I have said something incorrectly.

Amazing work, never seen pastel drawings this big or on wood!
It's so realistic, really fantastic!
Do you use fixation spray or something to protect your drawings?

I'm not usually much for hyper realistic paintings, but I like this one! There isn't enough art with wrinkles and blue veins.

H.....H.......How do you do this? The detail and the texture and....well, just about everything else, just impecable! You are an incredible talent!

Heavens this piece is gorgeous!  I am in absolute awe! 

Every little detail is stunning from the blue veins in her hands to the freckles in her skin.  The beautiful and wise creases in her face and the million rainbows of colour within her flesh. 

You captured every little texture perfectly.  I have no idea how you got that skin texture on her arms to look so perfect.  The weight of her form and the expression in her face speaks of so much longing and makes you wonder at the things she has seen. 

Beautifully done!:blackrose:
