Artwork Description

A story illustration that became more of a study in textures and lighting than anything. There seems to be something more natural about the process of painting an elderly person's face - almost like painting a landscape - than trying to render younger, smoother faces. Painted in Photoshop, characters Luna and Ine.

I have long been a fan of your comic, and have always commented, even if only to myself, that your artwork was admirable. When I actually took the time to look through your other varied works, I was shocked to see the true depth of your artistic genius. It is my wildest dream to someday achieve a level of skill comparable to yours, despite all rational thought that I will never even come close to equaling you.
By the way, this is most assuredly my favorite picture of your portfolio.

Tracy...I left you a message on another web site you have art listed on but never heard from you. Do you ever sell originals? Have you sold the original of this painting? I am very intersted. Do you ever do commission work? Thanks Jan if you will leave a post for me or a reply I will send you my email address in a personal email

I so felt in love with that piece, from the first thumbnail I saw over at DA. I would say this is your best piece to date and my absolute favorite. Great Work on the old lady in special
