    Amazing so well done!!! And good on you for dropping work to do something you love. I would say many people here would love to have the courage to do the same.

    AndeasM and Tigermilk, thanks duders. Where are you guys from?
    I studied at the Florence Academy of Art, Florence, Italy. Now I'm about to start working at the Florence Academy of Art, Gothenburg, Sweden (!). Going to work as an instructor one day a week, and dig deeper into this cruel yet beautiful world of optical illusion for the rest of the time.
    Been finding "new" inspiration lately from as varied sources as beautiful Gothenburgian women, the work of Android, James Jean, Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood, and so on.
    With some fear of overload, I think good things might come out of this.

    Hey, beautiful stuff-- looking forward to more.
    I really hope to see you apply your rendering skills in other areas, especially where illustration and digital media are concerned.

    Oh, and out of curiousity, what medium do you use? (Like, substance you add to your oil paint, if any)

    Zirngibism, I use linseed oil almost exclusively. Early on in a project I sometimes use some terpentine. But, as I'm sure you know, there are tons of other probably better stuff one can use. Balsams (?) 'n shit. I should probably look into that.

    Also, I got my wacom tablet ...waiting for me. I just need to find my balls first, and maybe some time.

    I really enjoyed looking at your portraits. Your pencil skills are amazing! So light, but you are so good at making them feel real, they jump out of the page.

    I have been doing some extremely serious thinking lately about quitting my job in order to consentrate fully on my art too. But it's a huge step, especially when there are bills to pay and my saving aren't so much that I could survive on them for a long time!!

    Congrats on making that jump though, looks like it really is paying off well so far. This makes me want to do the same even more now.

    Nice debut! Thanks for sharing your work. I am also interested in your growth as well. The edges on your paintings and drawings are really well done. Taking notes.

    Your portraits are simply amazing! But I must give the five stars to the last one, best nature pic I've seen on canvas in some time.

    I rarely give thanks to somebody with art, but you definitely have impressed me big time. It is so real and beautiful.

    I just wish I knew how to do it just like you do... it has the magic touch that the photo definitely can't achieve. Now that's what I call magical realistic art style... it's a mysterious style that not many people can accomplish. You nailed it down man!

    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful awe-inspiring pieces with us all! ^^ You should be a full time artist by the way.... however, I'm glad you're back with us again! I am looking forward to see more!

    I am absolutely in love with your stuff. I've lately just gotten into portrait painting and eventually want to make a name for myself. Knowing how to draw, though, sometimes isn't enough to paint a professional looking portrait. Did school help you a lot? Would you recommend it?
