Something does not feel right about the skin texture and the color tone of the forehead... It's like you've done that part seperately and than tried to merge here... I mean, it doesn't match the rest of skin tones and textures...

Other than that, marvellous as usual....

Thank you. :) I'm not sure about what exactly you mean, so I just uploaded a closeup into my scrap folder ([link]). The forhead wasn't actually done separately, but maybe I did something wrong there. :hmm:

Not so easy to explain in just a few words. :hmm: These are all small lines drawn with a tiny little brush.

Digital or not, these are just so well done. I see nothing "digital" looking in these at all. These look like fine, fine oil paintings. Outstanding, my friend.--Denny

Thanks, Denny! This means much to me coming from somebody like you! :)
I try very hard to give my drawings the look of an oil painting. ^^;

I can't get over your work! I'm curious do you ever do anything other than Indians?

Incredible work to say the least and the colors work so well. All of the other elements - the hair/feather, I can't imagine how time-consuming.

Thank you for showing this terrific work!

Thank you very much! :) This wasn't as time consuming as my latest works. The outfit had less details than usually. I spent most of the time on working out the face, which is always the favourite part. :nod:

Well, maybe not for you - it would take me 1000 years and a day. It's a beautiful piece of work, and I keep threatening myself to start drawing again.

But when it comes to drawing people, not an area that (to say the least) I'm even decent in.

Nice work! :)
