Hi. Just wanted to let you know my thoughts on your drawing, first of all i think the eyes are wonderful, I believe there can be many differences of opinion made into what emotions are showing here, i see a mix of desperation, fear and surprise on the persons face, it matchs the original photo and is expressed excellently in this drawing, the detail is brilliant especially just under each eye, mouths very detailed to, I like the white highlights around the eyes and mouth, shadows are done well, the original photograph has blurred areas at the top and you have included that in your work wonderfully, overall very well done with this work, and I very much look forward to what you create next.
What do you think?

Just wanted to let you know that I've had this in my favorites for a long time and I only just now realized it wasn't a photo. Seriously. It's that good. Amazing job! I had no idea it was a drawing.

Indeed they are. Imagine that for me (portraits) are my favorite subject. I love an expressive face and all the emotions lurking behind a cold stare, a tiny frown, a warm smile. And this is why i love her photos ,her face has limitless potentials in expressing all kind of emotions.
We are not that different you and I. We are seeking for the very same thing in our images.:nod:
At least this is what i understand from you folder 'Portraits' . :cuddle:

I will use a small part of my tut to reply and i can only hope you will understand how it feels to me.
"Almost always i know how things are going to turn, the finishing product is somehow 'imprinted' inside my head, even when i face a blank piece of paper when a project just starts, i don't see a blank piece of paper there, i see a finished amazing image, with every stroke, with every detail, with absolute clarity and sharpness. I know what will follow, because i see it crystal clear inside my head with all its glory, it just saddens me the fact that my skills are not solid enough to touch MY version of perfection, because the images inside my head are always so bright, so vivid, so strong, they hammer my skull so hard to let them out, and some times i fail myself because what i end up with isn't even as half as good as the images i dream off..."

Do you see? theres nothing but perfection inside my head but i don't have solid skills. Some times i come closer to my end result others i don't even touch it...
But this is Art(and life:|). I hope it makes some sense to you. :)

Yeah it seems i always do that,it feels like leaving my mark with the refs i use,tis true i alter them in many ways either i use graphite or CP.I cant change who i am dear,this is the thing with art,it will always bring to surface our deepest (and hidden some times) self.:nod:
And this is the only aspect i allow myself to be exposed. :handshake:
