Morgan LeFay modelled by Epilogue Artist Christine M. Griffin
Ah thank you so much, Aized, it is a real pleasure to learn new words..."Zaberdast" I love it, so much more stylish than "awesome"
In Urdu, I will say you... "Zaberdast" (Awsome)
I don't know what it is, Ken, but I get a real buzz from portraying real people in my work, esspecially people that I know! I have to be carefull though, the praise kinda feeds my ego a bit and I loose sight of the fact that I'm trying to improve and grow with my work...not just stay within the limits of portrait work! I'm looking to become more daring and put more elements into my work to compliment the figures! Guy's like you help me to aspire to that, thank you!
Ha..nice job of capturing Christine, from what I've seen of photos and such...you are really doing a great job coming up with ingenious ways to present each one of these artists (I think Socar's is still my favorite...gee, maybe I need to try to send you photos again, I don't think very many have drawn me, while I have drawn almost everyone I know).
Ha thank you dear Guest! yeah, they sure do!
Love it. Christine and the cat both got such attitude.
Thank you, Jessica! I bet you can't wait to see yours heh heh!
I haven't been able to comment in a while so I hope this goes through. . . anyway, another truly lovely piece from you, James. You are a master of skin tones and texture but what I like most about your portraits are the eyes. . . such life, such humor. Lucky Christine!
Thank you, Uwe! yeah, that would be something! kinda putting a face to the Artist behind those amazing paintings!
thats amazing - i love your portrait work sooooooo much - what a great idae to portrait some epilogue members - but hey, no wonder that the piece turned out so great, if one has such a fantastic model - she a real beauty --- someday i should sent you a picture from me, that would be a piece of horror - lol - james, you are for sure a fantastic artist, and a realy wonderful person!!!!!
Thank you, Svetlana!...mmm ain't I still waiting for pics from you?

Aww, Amy! I don't know what to say (that's a first!lol!) thank you so much!
Cheers Scott, always a pleasure to get such a great reaction from a fine Artist
I'm fairly new here,just want to say Hello and let you know how much I admire your colored pencil work! It's really wonderful! I really love your figures and your skin tones. I'm glad to see quite a bit of colored pencil here at Epilogue( I also do colored pencil) You've inspired me to work harder on my figures.. Thanks!!
Thank you Anne! I had a lot of fun with this one...funny enough, the cat was an after-thought, I'm glad you like!
Gorgeous!! You've done a wonderful job, James! I can't wait to see what else you're cooking up with this series. Amy, you make perfect sense - I know exactly what you mean and concur whole-heartedly!
You once made a comment on one of my drawings about how you liked the way I gave or captured light in my art. Well James you capture a different light, probally the most important light there is, and that is the light of the human soul. In every one of your drawings I see that in their expression, the glimmer in their eyes, the radiance in their skin, the quirk in their smile. It is all there. I am just waiting for this one to get up and walk away, that is how well they come across to me. Eh, maybe I am not making sense. It is hard to explain what I get out of your art. But if I sound like a bumbling idiot trying to explain it then so be it.
