Thank you, Jurek, I wanted to show a believable robust woman instead of a catwalk queen....too much is made of slenderness these days I think Smile

you mean the hunter callisto that later became stars don´t you?(cuz in the story it says that she has verrry untidy hair and your hair here is really beautiful.)
but it´s really great that you made her strong and big not tiny and thin.

Wow! James, you've certainly been busy lately! And as usuaul i am intrigued with the structures of your drawing...the translucent, embroidered wisp of a toga and the gleaming sword. Astonishing!An overall great composition!

hi james, this work is so beautifully deft while having a powerful elegance.
i really appreciate the tones you have achieved along with the sensual nature of the line.
pencil power...!

BRAVO - this is beautiful - just like the model. I mean, how many women are out there, not looking like Barbie (Thanks God) - and you made her so powerful and strong. Not to forget her "dress" and weapons. Love this painting!

Fine detail wonderfull colors and a beautifull woman that is "Real".It appears to me that James did outstanding job making a fantasy portrait appear realistic.

Art at its best.
