Great portrait. What knocks me out is your use of the BG and those earings. Really adds a LOT to this artwork. Well done !!

Thanks Tony, i chose the background colour to balance off the earrings , glad it had the desired effect.

Thanks Caesar, I know like myself you appreciate a pretty lady.

Thanks for that, this is just my style although I think a photo would save me many days work, but not half the fun.:)

geoff... now that so many have mentioned it the earring is really well done and I think it adds balance and interest to whole piece. without it I don't think it would have been such a nice work, although of course the woman is excellent and quite beautiful.. another area I think you did well on besides the eyes is the delicate hairline along the side of her face...so many great details... it was fun to see it enlarged to study just how you did them..:):)

Thanks for that, I think I am getting a little better at doing hair, but don't look too close;)

She definitely looks kissable. Very beautiful woman. I would recommend as far as details, that you don't end her eyebrow so abruptly and have it taper/fade out a little. Also the hair right in front of the ear, you might want to have a few little wispy faint hairs, again with an eye to being both a little more natural as well as a gentler transition between hair and skin. Not all shapes are complete all around. Sometimes it's good to blend edges a little, in one way or another. You have done it nicely in many areas already. But this is a seriously beautiful woman and a very nice portrait.

Thanks for your very constructive comments, I do appreciate them as this is how we learn to improve.
So nice to see you back online once again, hope you have not been getting into mischief while not online.:)
