    There's something uncanny about your portrits. Congratiolations

    I just noticed that.. I was wondering why the eyes stood out so much.

    These are nice. I like the first one a lot (I will have to disagree with you thinking it is the lack of eyelashes though--I find it gains that surreal/uncanny quality from the eyes being much larger than on a real person).

    Are you using reference on these?

    Lovely works. They're very lifelike but 'just not really', if you know what I mean? I like that.

    Wow, i've never stopped by your sketchbook before. U have some really nice stuff in here. My only crit would be to try branching out from just portraits, cause i'll bet you could do some killer stuff with whole figures if your portraits are this good.

    Anyway, keep it up! looks great!

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Hi Noctulius, I'm not really the right person to give major critique back based on my level of skill, but I feel like I needed to congratulate you on creating some beautiful paintings of these girls... the rendering is great and these are a great inspiration for someone like me. Would love to know your secrets and work process.

    Amazing!!! love the subtleness of the tones - the eyes draw you in.

    Breathless.

    What program did you use? Photoshop?

    I like 'em, they are all kinda monumental and delicate at the same time, but that first picture plus the one on the thumbnail have really got something. I think it has to do with the fact that the whole rectangle is coming into expressive operation, rather than parts as is the case with most of the others.

    Yeah that first one is awesome, for sure. I agree that it has an uncanny quality to it... the expression I think does it for me. Very classical.

    These are glorious.

    It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done.
