I love how, even though you're using photos as reference, you don't just copy the photo. You change it to your liking. For instance I noticed the background is a night scene when in fact the reference was shot in the daytime. Oh and that sky is stunning.

Fantastic job on taking this scene and making it your own!

thank you :aww: glad you like it!
As I'm not that good in making portraits out of my imagination I have to help myself by using a references, but I always try to make them different, to experiment with shadows, lights, emotions on the face, almost all my realistic works are made with reference but it is sometimes too much modificated to link them in description (it would be senseless). Sometimes I get only pose of figure or shape of clothes - it's difficult to imagine ;) but I always want to show my imagination by my art. :)
I'm still learning how to paint - I'm a self-taught artist and your words keep me up :hug:

I love the pose and the background in this picture. As well the colours were very nicely done :) However I noticed the right hand has been placed upside down. The thumb should be on top :] Overall however, I love this picture. Definately beautiful and stirs the emotion. Love it :)

Thank you :aww: your comment means a lot to me :) This work took me a lot of time... I'm glad you like it :)
Hmmm... You're right - it really looks like it is drawed upside down but I noticed it too - look at the link to photo of stock by Lady Providence :) it looks the same as in this photo ;)

Hmmm, interesting. Her pinky has created almost the illusion of a backwards hand... Maybe next time put less of a curve to show that its a pinky and not a thumb :P Honestly, that's what caught me off gaurd was the curve of the pinky, it looked like there was more meat there and looked like a thumb :P But still, overall great work. :)

sometimes photos makes illusions that are tricky to draw... :/ i thought about what you said - to change curves of the hand but it would be unfair with the Lady Providence - the commisioner, I thought that nails I drawed will show the correct position of hand but I see bow it doesn't look how I want, they are too small for making them more details :) let them be how emphasize shapethey are :) next time I will try to emphasize the shape of difficult, tricky parts :)
