Lovely work! Teeth are hard to get just right, and you done a wonderful job on the eyes.

There is never any 'just a pretty lady' about a pretty lady, my friend. . . Their allure is like a shimmer in an opal, glint off a diamond, or the Dramamine with that tourmaline.

Another beauty, Limey-G. Her teeth are very well painted. Nothing slap-dash about it.

Thanks for that and yes I agree with you on teeth , so many tv personalities have over white teeth and many see this as the norm.
So getting just the right shade can be sometime a little difficult, things like that I always do on a sep layer so things can be adjusted without upsetting other elements.

Thanks for that next time I will head it as " A special lady for D Akey." :)
They are all special to me and I love the beauty found in the female form.

Pretty indeed. Well done.
Thanks , I enjoy this type of art, I think it comes from always being into photo retouching which is where I first got into using a tablet.
I would love to own a Cintiq like you use but I don't think I could get that past my wife.:):)

Thanks for that, portraits have become my favourite thing to tackle and I really enjoy the amount of knife work needed to get the skin nice and smooth.
I know not everyone likes this much detail but for me it gives me most satisfaction.

Geoff... I can see the influence of your photographic and retouch background... great details like the light falling across her form and as others have said great skin and teeth tones.. your diligence to your art is paying off big time...as this wonderful attests... :):)

Thanks I have always enjoyed the retouching, spent many years working on photographic portraits improving skin and skin tones, adjusting eye colour etc.
I sometimes like to take a painting into photoshop where I can sample the skin tones in CMYK and letting the numbers tell me just how close I am to achieving lovely skin tones.
