you really got the crumbling effect right for the gems falling away from his neck. the fur looks interesting, and i think you shaded the area around his eyes in such a sexy way!

no, it's about I dream I had about a society inventing a liquid to turn people into gemstones. Pretty weird stuff, come to think of it...

Actually, people's ashes can be compressed and used to form certain gemstones. Someone showed me an ad for it once! It was pretty creepy.
This is a sad but beautiful picture. I love the eyes and the eyelashes.

OMG! This is some very good shading you've got here, man you've got some potential to become very popular. About the pic:

The expression: iz flawless. I think what he is thinking. You're getting the message across which is very good.

Coloring: OMG The skn is perfect. Your hair style is quite simple, yet I hadn't seen white hair colored so beautifully. The fur, even if simple, is also very good.

Overall: A very good picture, I mean, I would have to say....ISTAFAVE...hehe...congratulations...[/jealous]

the face is amazing, it's so clear, so pale, so in the light, then the rest starts to show (the "decay", the transformation).

that's a stunning piece :aww:
