Your style is absolutely beautiful. It's crazy how you can pull paintings out of thin air. I remember one painting, you said took you twenty minutes. The painting looked incredible, especially for only twenty minutes.

There is such emotion in her eyes, the far off stare. A deeper meaning in the painting. I love how your brush strokes are loose and fluid. The way you shaded with pen is nice as well. I love how the hair flows so well. I looks so real, every strand of hair. There is really nothing wrong with this painting at all. The only thing I would have done was add a bit more darker tones(around the chin and neck). But that's just me. It's perfect the way it is, really.

I can't tell you how inspiring you are. I'm absolutely in love with your paintings, I wish I could go to one of your work shops or meet you. You must be passionate about art considering how much emotion you put in your paintings. I plan on buying a few prints of yours for Christmas. Please never stop painting. I also want to ask, what pen do you use?

The Artist thought this was FAIR
14 out of 14 deviants thought this was fair.

Your art has more than just a drawing on paper that makes people go "wow". Your art has a soul. It has a beautiful person, captured inside of the colours and style to express all kinds of emotions. To me, it looks like a perfect mirrored projection with every detail perfectly chiseled from the jaw to the nose, eyes. Every part of it has a living soul to it. I'm speechless and inspired to try my best, but I know I you have a true artist gift. She is a breathing living persona on paper.
Keep up the amazing work, love you!

Wow, this is amazing.

May I ask some questions?

What is the texture of moleskine and what is it good for? (Besides watercolor)

What brand of paints do you use?
What kind of scanner do you use or do you
use a scanner at all? (I have a good one, but it's just not made for art)
How do you keep air bubbles from popping up and do you let each individual color dry before adding another?
