    Amazing! You really have a good handle on blond hair. Very nice colors and natural effect. It's all looking great.

    I know the genre is filled with death imagery. It's part of the vibe. But I always wondered in the back of my mind if people who sing and obsess about death don't in fact create it like a mantra. Good stuff if you're a warrior and death is part of life. But for artists? Sometimes we don't know which way that death is aimed.
    So RIP to this young man.

    Very good painting I must say. Better and better every time.

    Yeah. Well, unlike music trends, good caricatures never go out of fashion. So you're headed in a lasting direction.
