Yes, welcome back--even though we have no reference to what these people rally look like, somehow we just know you nailed each one. Excellent!

Thanks guys...it's a special project I'm working on. On Facebook, whoever joins the event I posted for the contest has a chance to get a facebook portrait done by me. So I will be adding more onto this thread. I hope to be able to do about 50 portraits in a span of 2 weeks. We'll see how close I get. :)

Thank you everyone! And yes, I am trying to do them all quickly. Some take longer than others. Like just a face takes a few hours, a full one with extra might take about 8 hours. Here's another one!

Wow Dali you are so talented. These are absolutely wonderful but I do have a favourite and that is the lady you have just added. What a beautiful smile and wonderful eyes she has. You have captured really happiness in this one. Well done Dali and cannot wait to see more.:)

Dali, as others have said, its good to see you back! Im amazed how you can create so many fine portraits so quickly. I guess when one has talent many things are possible. :cool:

When you've done portraits for so long, you get used to the technique. Now give me a landscape, and it will take me several days and you'll still never get a believable piece. I think it is because I see things as shapes so easily in faces, but not in scenery. It's just colors, it's just blobs, I can't take it and turn it into a shape for the life of me, and it has to be perfect.

Wow you are very talented.:):)

Just out of curiosity was any of your portraits inspired by a tv series Heroes only a couple of your portraits look like some of the characters.

Thanks again fraser, gzairborne, and mannafig, and no, none of them were characters from Heroes, these are all the portraits of some of the friends I have on facebook.

These are great portrait paintings, Dali. You are very talented and do it so fast. I really like the last one too but every portrait shows the person own character. Amazing. All the luck to your competition.:)
