Thanks! Yeah, I was a little worried that the grey's hair wouldn't turn out but i'm pleased (which is odd LOL!) I've wanted to paint those 2 for a long time but never wanted to take the chance with those poodle curls!

Stunning work!!! I see you're another one of these crazy folk who can actually use paint to get a realistic result... me + paint = little kids finger painting haha!

Well it's what I feel more comfortable with. I've never tried pastel, but I love the way it looks. To me, hair & stuff always seems more realistic in pastel than paint...

haha well either way, I admire your ability to work so well in paint. Some of the paintings I have seen on various art forums by artists who use paint as their primary medium, are actually so realistic that you can barely distinguish between the reference shot and the painting. I think with just about any of the 'realistic' mediums, it's all about practice practice practice a a bit of talent thrown in, to achieve that highly realistic appearance of your subject.

A girl sent me a pic of her mom's horse for a commissioned painting, but she wants me to paint him running toward the viewer. She wants the background a solid color, so im thinking blue...

Ok, so I flew through this one because i've got another to start right away. I'm not a fan of the wall-eyes, but she really liked it so I guess it's all good
