Wow, thank you :) Well, sorry, but I can't really explain it.. I put a grid over the reference photo on the computer, draw a similar grid on my pastel paper, and then I pass the picture case by case with pencil. Thats the sketch, and then I begin to color it layer by layer with pastel chalks, then I add details with pastel pencils :) The grid technique is maybe the secret, otherwise it could (yet) not be that accurate :D

That expression gives me chills. She's a gorgeous woman but you've taken her allure to a whole new level. Some people tell me that I make my portraits prettier than they are in person because I see beauty more intensely than others...I think you've done exactly that.

Oh my goodness, this is absolutely lovely! I thought it was a photograph at first glance. It's amazing the amount of detail that you've infused into this piece, the lace particularly sticks out to me. And the skin just so soft, t glows. Great work!
