This is a portrait of my housemate, I am putting it up because I personally think it's the best thing I have ever painted.

It's done in oils on illustration board, took me about two weeks because I was piddling about with the skin colour. I'm not gonna say what this picture is about because it's fantasy and I think it's more fun for people to make their own minds up ^^

How did I miss this one? I love the way that the light works through her hair - very haunting and beautiful.

I love the colors you've used here, and the lighting on her face and shoulder turned out fantastic. I don't paint these days and I used a trowel with oils (only half joking!), and you took great advantage of the texture paint can give. This is really, really nicely done! :w00t:

Oh my, do tell her she has lovely red hair! :)

I love the glow on her face. It's so mysterious.
