Portrait of a friend, for her birthday !


It's very exciting, congratulations!



So much movement and dynamism in this. So much light. So many soft colors. When I look at this portrait I have this strange sensation: as if I were on a terrace facing the sea, with beautiful balconies and the mixed smell of seaside wind and freshly cut grass...

...now that is a great gift for a friend...


This is fantastic....

I'm a serious sucker for vibrant colors and contrast. You didn't go crazy with contrasting colors, but it's good because it makes the picture feel more pretty instead of just striking. I was however transfixed for a few moments just looking at the vibrancy of your color choice, especially with the flowers, feathers and butterflies and how they interact with the nice Earth tones elsewhere. Amazing job.

Awe inspring.

I came over to the art portal to find a specific picture, but as soon as this caught my eye my jaw literally dropped as I said, "Wow."
This is awesome. Like seriously photo-realistic. And that hat is just jizztastic.
Awesome job.

yeah ! hehe
Thanks ! that was hard, 3 full hard days


Really amazing how realistic this looks.

The lineart is perfect, and the coloring makes it look, well, realistic. The shading as well, on her face, looks great and really makes it look realistic, even more so than the coloring.

The detail on the flowers on the hat amaze me. Could maybe have added a background, but if this is a portrait, that would maybe just pull the attention away from the person, which isn't what you want.
