    It's practically perfect and astoundingly neat and realistic as a portrait!
    If I may forward You a slight personal impression, I would only point out that some boundaries are possibly too precisely drawn, separating areas like in a collage. Usually there's some reflection of other objects on the skin and viceversa and little shadows (T-shirt/ neck) have not a fixed thickness or none.
    I hope You would excuse me, but I'm so impressed by Your capability and You are so close to perfection that even a millimeter away from it may become evident and I couldn't refrain from this hopefully constructive observation.
    Congratulations also for Your young jewels You're so proud of!

    Thank you so much Caesar, your comments and suggestions are truly welcome and appreciated.
    I can see now looking at it after having a break, exactly what you are saying. I was getting a little bogged down trying to get the skin tones and his eyes right, that I missed the important little bits like shadows and textures on the clothing. I should have taken a step back and had a break, instead of trying to finish it all in one go.
    Christine.

    Caesar, I have done the neckline and quite a few other bits I missed. Thank you again for your help.
    These are the first portraits I have done since the early 70's, at that time I did a few miniatures of my own children.
    I love digital and ArtRage.
    The smaller Photo is what I used as reference.

    Dear Saphire, You was so quick and over-effective in Your change.
    Now I would really print the label perfect on it!
    Looking forward to see Your next masterpieces and to learn more and more from looking at Your forthcoming entries!
