I like that your characters faces don't look all the same. Everyone looks different.

I would like to get to your level of artistic ability. One step at a time.

Very nice! I'd like to suggest putting more splashes of colour in your greyscales like you did with Heiko in Commision Portraits - Set 1. It really adds something special and attension-grabbing to your pieces. Ardwen is drawn very well, but his design isn't very unique, and that extra bit of colour would have made him much more memorable.

This client's particular character design is all hair, black clothes, black eyes. There was nothing to colorize for this one. ^__^;;

I know Im super late in commenting on this. Its been on my watchlist for awhile now, because Ive been so in love with it, but havent figured out how to express that! Haha.

His face is just so realistic and expressive. His lips especially are lovely, and the eyes, just woowww!

I don't even think I could explain how awesome his hair is. It has volume and texture! That is possibly the best-drawn hair I've seen in ages, haha.

My only critique is his ear - It looks unfinished compared to the rest of him. I really think it's just that there are some nice, really dark shades in the picture, and his ear doesn't have them? Contrast! That's the word.

ANYway, beautiful portrait, Adele!

Wow, thank you! *hugs* And yeah, ear-structure is usually my weak point in paintings. ^__^;;
