oil painting wip *updated 1.12*
something i am working on as a present for my gf. things are a bit rocky between us, and i thought this would cheer her up. its pretty big, and i have been having a lot of problems with proportion and distortion...just not used to painting big. any comments would be a great help. oh yeah, and can anyone tell who it is? haha
update, dont hate me!

hehe...well...im one of those that seem to think that there is a lot to explore in the unfinished quality that is shown in your painting...for example the rough underpaintings/sketches of the heads in the background leaves a lot to my mind to fill in and explore...it's hard to explain but sometimes it's good to not give it all away...i mean how do one explain that i go wild when i see those highlights around the eyes of your painting...i dont know where you want to go with your skills...your techniqe is fucking awesome and you have heard it over and over again but now you have come to a point where you can get deeper in to theory...lucas art will hire you , dont worry about that...but i think that you will find more than you think in the text of theory masters...and whatever you do don't listen to me!!!....

A little part of me was disappointed when I saw you were totally fleshing out the other faces. I thought the unfinished marks in the background were the beginning of some really nice "phrases". Anyway - nice painting.

Umm.. i know!
I can give you some advice here.
Leave it unfinished - and take her out. Spend more time with her, my friend! This thing with the "fav. band" comes and goes.
You should be the center of her desires! :p
Sometimes... we have to make this kind of choices. Sometimes...
