Wonderfully painted skin! :heart:

wow! his/her eyes are so life like. I can honestly look at them and believe he/she is looking right back at me.

Your work is always gorgeous.

How do you get such finely finished and realistic work. Everything I do looks so sketchy in comparison. This is so beautifully finished.

very pretty ^^
nancy-porto Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2007
Wow.. She seems slightly strange but so gorgeous at the same time... I call it unique =D
I have a question that I hope isnt too intruding.
Do you intentionally keep the hair blurry?

i like the gem in the necklace.
Dionizije Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Very nicely done! I like colors and tones, and especially expression of the face! It is hard to make expression like this one. Beautiful!;)
artiemei Featured By Owner May 29, 2007
this is really great. For some reason, she reminds me of the ogre version of princess fiona. ........I wonder why O.o
idril-ilae Featured By Owner May 26, 2007
beautiful! great job with the hand! ^^
kura1204 Featured By Owner May 15, 2007
are you sure this isn't a photo?
ramaeschlimann Featured By Owner May 11, 2007
Great colors and details. :wow:
gabriellerose Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2007
My first thought was this is a girl...but yes. Things boys don't do: Hold their hands up, and gaze. Needless to say, your skill is astounding, so people will like it whichever sex it looks like.
Squabbit Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2007  Student General Artist
Again, beautiful detail in this piece. The color contrasts in this are delicious...keep up the great work.

Where do you get your inspiration for your images? this is truly breathtaking :>
NibbleKat Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The skin tones are amazing. This is so stunningly beautiful. I wish I could afford to commission you.
CarottePetitpois Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2007
oh my god :faint: is it real? a photograph?
I mean it's realy beautiful!!! looks so real!!!
great great work
slickgreekgeo Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2007   Digital Artist
Excellent work, I'm always amazed at how good you paint portrates. In terms of color, this is one of your best, especially with those skin tones. Excellent job.
temporary-peace Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2007   Digital Artist
You have a wonderful sense of colour, the way you make the skin appear almost translucent... This brings a lot of emotion in your images!

nataliecarmen17 Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
your color palette is beautiful!
Zephyri Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Your colors are just mind blowing. I've never seen such a beautiful skin colour. Wow. And I think you balance the line of androgeny masterfully. I guessed male, since your females have a little more.. I don't know, but this one definitely was a little different. More like the portrait of Sali you did for Adele. Just gorgeous though.
thienbao Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007
Thanks a lot!:D
XsoRa Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007
Beautiful prince! Very well and realistically done.
2dazed Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I want that necklace! Lol! The details & colors are soothing & perfect.
fablespinner Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I already told you this, but I will state it again for all, you totally NAILED Perdain. He came out exactly as I wrote him and how I envisioned him in the book. Thank you so much and I just cannot wait for the second commission, you're so talented!
thienbao Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007
Me too:D thanks!
sage-of-the-diviners Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Very interesting, I like how you make your shading so soft. What kind of brushes do you use?
thienbao Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007
thanks! I use a lot of brushes, but for smoothing rough spots, i use the round brush on softest setting, then it's only a matter of picking colors and gently brushing it around:)
sage-of-the-diviners Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, I see. So for normal painting you're using a more or less modified plain round brush right? :)
Rita-Ria Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
just fantastic done. I like esp. her eyes and necklace!
sharihes Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2007  Professional General Artist
This is very beautiful work.

But just because this is a guy, you are my new hero <3
thienbao Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007
Awesome! thanks!:D
daborien Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2007  Professional General Artist
The expresion of the eyes are amazing man!!!
JoseHerb Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Beautifully done.
KaynessArt Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
ah, when I first saw this in the thumbnail I thought you drew a girl, a beautiful girl at that, but when I read the description and saw the hand, which is a bit large and thick for a girl who appears to be that age and size, I just think, you made such a convincing take on androgyny. His ambiguous(racially as well as in terms of gender) features really intrigue me and I love the colours you used, a blend between the cool colours of his eyes and skin with the warm tones of his lips and cheeks. I also admire the precision of how you rendered his necklace.
thienbao Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007
Thanks very much!:)
Belenen Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
these last two really remind me of Kagaya's work!
