someone whose style blows me away. I felt some sort of homage was in order, but words failed. I tried doing this pic, and making it cool and cutting edge, like her style, but instead I ended up with a skewed semi-portrait which looks very little like my intended victim. nevertheless. Hoping it will make her smile knowing how many hours I stared at her face, and knowing that it was because of this picture that I learned to paint coloured pencil with a q-tip. thank you for all the good vibes LJ.


by the way, this is more stylized than photorealistic. if you're looking for that kind of quality check out nimra and dont bother tightening your socks. he's just gonna knock 'em off anyhow. :D

thank you very much! I hope to post some of my newer paintings soon..right now though I have a big secret...which I will be posting in my journal soon..it's really not that big of a deal (I'm not getting signed to a label, or having some wonderful gallery exhibit, and my graphic novel is not getting published..in case anyone thought I was even close to being finished with that) but it's big news for me...and any day now. :strip: ciao!

:bow: why thank you very much!! I would do it differently if I were to do it again..but that's only because I learned so much from doing this piece. Thank you for stopping to take a glance..and even more for leaving a comment. Much appreciated.

oh you are too sweet..and SO modest! <(^0^)>. You can do anything you put your mind to. I did not go to school for art. I taught myself. We do best what we love . I'm also quite good at noogies. :noogie: see? :p

hmm maybe my poor rendering.. in the photo I have she actually appears more thoughtful than sullen. nevertheless, I am very happy to have you stop by and doubly so that you took time to comment. :hug:

its unfair that someone should be able to write and paint like you do... A gorgeous painting lots of warmth and a feeling of serenity... amazing =P

you are so very kind! thank you, I am humbled. in this instance I only did a fair job of actually catching my subject. she's more beautiful than my talent can match, and the pose and lighting were merely my interpretation of one of her photos. I also compose music. you can check it out by going to [link] and clicking on one of the links at the bottom, or if you email me with a mailing address I will gladly send you a CD sample of my tunes. :)

I love the way all the colors and textures in the background, in addition to her expression, help to create sort of an atmosphere

well... I can really only claim the background..everything else was borrowed ( tweaked) from a photo sent to me by this highly talented person.. I've found I really enjoy doing portraits.. thank you for your wonderful comments!! :)

nothing i could say could really justify my thoughts with this painting. you've captured me brilliantly... you took the canvas where you felt it needed to go. you went to the right place with it...

i love it.


i love it.

She is beautiful, I like the whole painted varnish look, it makes it seem like a very professional sketch, not because it is sketch like but because when you see a picture, there is some admiration if the shot is great etc. but watching a person sketch has that magic of creation. This has that. Great Rob. Thanks, I am so happy you submitted this.

eventually I would like to portrait, you, CW and Evad( among others). (send those pics) I'm Glad you liked this my brother and thank you for the gracious comments. I am a little out of practice with realism these days I note. stylizing this didn't help matters either. The subject is actually quite beautiful I'm afraid my crude attempt at perspective distortion did not do her justice. :p more on the way.. perhaps something abstract?

This is wonderful. I've always envied people with the patience to create genuine works like this with colored pencil, and this is a great example. Your use of colors is my favorite part, especially how well you worked so many hues into the skin tone.
Also, what kind of surface was this done on? I can't quite seem to place it... it almost looks like canvas or cotton duct.

canvas.. those little peel-n-eat sheets that come in notebook size. :D thank you very much. the colour was muddled a bit when I decided to paint through it with turpentine and a q-tip. I really appreciate your stopping by. your gallery is quite incredible.
