Un cadeau pour ma merveilleuse femme

A gift for my wonderful wife

Lorsque la vie parait triste et dénuée de sens, il suffit parfois d'un rayon de soleil perçant à travers les nuages pour nous redonner goût à la vie.

When life seems sad and meaningless, just sometimes a ray of sunshine piercing through the clouds to give us life loving

This is a stunning work, with great emotion behind it. Your technique is fabulous and it looks very realistic, though in a few select spots (the border of the shirt, parts of the hair), it looks a little less lifelike (not by much!). The lighting is very well done and the colors mesh together beautifully, from the purple in the sky to the purple of her shirt and the rosy and peach tones in the sky blending well with her hair and skin. I am practically speechless. :) I am not one to judge, since I don't create beautiful works like this myself. You've got incredible talent and I think this piece is simply gorgeous. <3

Wow, great painting. I'd say the face is pretty much bang on in terms of being hyper realistic as you've really got the lighting down. Only thing that I'd say is that the hair strands are a wee bit thick maybe? I'm guessing that was deliberate to make it more stylized and it works great, it does give it away as a painting though...although that's the only thing that does! Brilliant work, absolutely loving the colours. Nice job

Thanks for this comment. It was more difficult to make the hair because I didn't have model for it. But I prefer that my works don't look too realistic. Sorry for my english :)

Here is another picture I really, really want to hit "Add favorite" for but can't tonight (12/10) because of some dA glitch playing havoc with anything I try to do up top there. Still, maybe I'll hear from you later and be able to change that. I love this portrait. It's simply beautiful. I don't know what else to say. The gaze, highlights, skin tones, colors - they're all perfect. :+fav:
