Your paintings are just mind blowing.

For some reason this painting makes me want to cry... Perhaps it's because I just woke up and don't want to have to go out today hehe. I have a real affinity for the north american indians.. They absolutely fascinate me and now through your stunning renditions I can satisfy my fascination. The colours work so harmoniously together and the texture work is excellent.

You know... they should place this as the description of the words "perfect", "detail" and "portrait" in the illustrated dictionary...

I could imagine this took forever to finish, but it was CLEARLY every bit worth it!

Kudos! :)

Yes, I worked about three months on this piece (mostly on the weekends, when I had time for it). Probably it's my most time-consuming drawing ever. Thanks for liking it! :)
