Of all your wonderful images on the thumbnails, this one kept catching my eye. I remember commenting on her before, and now, I must comment again. She's exquisite. Her skin tone and features are beautiful, her expression is illustrious...and her hair is such a magnificent flora! Oh, yes, I love that eye make-up! I'm so into that!

Hey J.P,thanks for stopping in!This one was a reference from some fashion mag,it was black and white and does'nt even look like it.But I used it for the lighting.As for taking my own,I've finally convinced my better half(who has a great figure:)to do some posing for me,but getting her to do those really odd sexy fantasy poses in a string bikini is slow going!I'm working on her though:)Thanks J.P,I really appretiate it!

Great pic Sean , I agree with Marley, your getting much crisper with you details , nice job pal...

Marley,that is one of the greatest comments you could give me and I appretiate it.Almost exactly one year ago I started doing art again after not doing any art for 8-9 years.Its been damn hard to get back any skills I once had and someone noticing the improvement in my work is just damned cool!Thanks matey!

Thanks for the comment!Not Sasha Cohen either,sorry.My reference came from a fashion mag,it was a black and white and really doesn't look a whole lot like her either.The lighting is really what interested me in the reference.If its any consolation,my wife said it looked like Marie Osmond:)

Thanks Dean!She does look somewhat like a young Carrie doesn't she.Not her though.The leaves were done from scratch with a wacom,I just made them up as I went.Unfortunately I had to paint them twice because I didn't use web safe colors and the resolution from the first attempt sucked.Oh well,live and learn:)Thanks Dean.

This is a very beautiful piece of work. she looks like figure skater Sasha Cohen. I wonder what she thinks of this is she sees it.I bet she be amazed. very lovely. great job.

What a beauty! She reminds me of Carrie Fisher in her starwars days. Those plants are so well done. Loks like they took a lot of patience to do.
