Thank you very much! Art is my favorite hobby and I dedicate most, if not all, my free time to it. For me, it is the best way to relax and wind down. My bedroom is basically an art studio with a bed, lol.
I really appreciate your kind words!! The delayed reply was simply because reading this message in my inbox made me grin XD Thank you so very much!
Darling........I am truly speechless. Let me start from a logical point....
I'd like to start with the silhouette and outline. It's very clean and pleasing, and draws your eye in well to the centre.The shirt is a very pretty purple-blue fading mix, very well done. Vague, yet specific enough. The gorgeous scarf is casually thrown about which adds appeal, and the low-sloping shoulders show he is very relaxed. The skin tones are brilliantly done, looking as tangible as my chair. The shadows, while sharp, are well-blended, and perfectly accentuate the flawless features. Lips are sublimely finished, with a gold tint just like the way he did his makeup. His nose and cheekbones are exactly so, and very good, and I do like that you didn't do the full gold stage makeup. It adds a more relaxed, comfortable dimension to his normally odd character. The eyes are simply put, impeccable, in that they are almost real-looking, wide open, yet kind, and dark yet sparkling. The hair is great---overall golden and great, with silvery higlights and purple and green undertones, bringing it nicely to his shirt's colour scheme. This, my dear, must be the best thing you've ever done---which is saying a hell of a lot.
I bet it was great fun ^^, but I also bet I would have given up at the clothing's pattern...I'd go with using a texture or something. Or at least I would try to paint a small part and then copy and use it as a brush. I don't know.
But anyway, this is still one of my favourite works by you.
