resembles a beautiful classic painting from the days of yore...
The facial detail is gorgeous and the lighting on the hair is also really nice.
I really like the light in her hair. Amazing work.
It feels like Caravaggio or Rembrandt, I like the light and your work.
very interesting, it makes me want to try and experiment a bit too !
Very beautiful portrate
I love the feathery texture of the brushstrokes, as well as the tender lighting scheme. Beautiful work!
I love your rough painting style! :3
Looks great !
Thanks man. I was about ready to give up on this one half way through, during the "ugly stage", but decided to keep working at it.
Did you use one type of texture brush for the whole thing? this looks really great! I need to break my comfort zone by working with more textured brushes without blending them so much
I used a couple of brushes on the face, then 2-3 more on the background and around the edges. It was mainly just for variety. It's fun to experiment with textures.
Beautiful. I love your style, it looks like oil. I think Maude Adams would look beautiful in your style. You should try painting her. (it's just a recommendation tho)
beautiful, just... everything is beautiful in this painting.
God I love your artwork, you're my idol!
The values here are expertly handled. Nice job.
Fantastic brushwork man
