Christina is a wonderful portrait artist. One think I love about her work is how she captures the life and soul in the portrait. I always feel like she has infused even more life into it that a photo even can. Her mastery of color is excellent, the shadows and highlights are so well done to make the image pop. She just goes so far beyond mere accuracy, it is such a treasure. The detail in the hair, skin, lips, eyes is incredible. Plus I want to take opportunity to say that she is one of the sweetest and most wonderful people on DA.
Outstanding piece, Christina. I'm in awe!!! I like the reflection of the flower on her face. The highlights are striking and used very effectively. The colors blend well and capture the essence of her skin-tone. You really did a good job putting this together. Her eyes are just captivating! I love the way you put in the reflections. The shades and background are well done also. Congratulations, you’ve created a jaw dropping piece of art!
Your work is really good and it only seems to get better. Your style is very good and the images are very precise. You work is near perfect and they look even better than the pictures they are done from. Your art bring out more highlights and contract which make the portrait standout better than a photograph. Your art will catch a persons attention quicker than the original photo would. So keep doing what you are!
