Sadness by LuisaPreissler Sadness by LuisaPreissler
I should have done a thousand other things this evening...
instead I did this screencap study from the film Centurion that got slightly out of hand.
Feel so happy painting faces, I could do it all day :)

Now to serious work!

This is such a powerful piece. She looks very said but also like she is contemplating something. The realism is dead on and absolutely stunningly gorgeous. I like how you can see the textures in the face. Her eyes are very lovely as well. For a sad piece the hair seems a bit wild so it sort of contradicts it a bit, but the hair does look very real and fantastic. Your background is simple and blends in with her clothing so it does not take away from her one bit.

This is amazing, you did a great job, keep it up~!

There's such strong emotion in her eyes. I often find that the best artworks are the ones that connect with you emotionally on some level, and this one definitely does that. Great work:)

Der Gesichtsausdruck ist fantastisch. Die Farbpalette ist gelungen. Die Haare auch sehr gelungen. Zu toll um neidisch zu werden. :)
