Model and Inspiring for this painting was the great portraitist and epi-member James McPartlin.
thanks Rochelle, yes it is my darkest painting - if your monitor is a bit dark - I could imagine, that you see almost nothing. But glad you like!
Hey Rita! I'm just wondering - is it supposed to be near black dark? Because I'm trying to figure out my monitor settings!!
I love the smooth skin, and the dark is very menacing. Great work!
Again THANK you Jessica. James just has gorgeous eyes, hasn't he?
What an excellent portrait, and of course I knew who it was immediately! Love the eyes. . . so much expression.
Thank you Kirsi! Makes me happy, that you like it
ha ha ha - Donna - thank you so much! First I didnt dare to paint James as daemon-hunter - as he is the nicest and kindest person!! But the dark painting "asked" for something "dangerous"
Wow, what an awesome look in his eyes. He looks somewhat frightened to me, and I expect he has a dangerous and terrifying profession. Really well done Rita.
nice one Rita! This is hilarious and very well made - love the little teeth and expression -
Thank you very much Sandra!
Good looking model and splendid portrait.
Those fangs are cute XD.
THANK you Lorenzo - your comment is very appreciated and I really like your art!
Very nice expression and great portrait! Congratulations.
Tom, your comment makes me HAPPY - THANK YOU
Great work Rita! Nice clean portrait...polished....
Hi Stephen, thanks I am fine - hope you TOO. Glad you like it - my next one is Prince Vlad who waits to get accepted...
hi rita, how are you?
well i hope? nice pickie.
dark and dangerous; just the way i like it..
Sorry James - if one is no vampir, then it is you! But the dark painting just "screamed" for something DARK and DANGEROUS I am glad you like!
OOOOOOOH my, it's me! frightening and so true to life, I don't think I'll walk the night alone with myself again! Fantastic work, Rita, the eyes, hair and skin tones are awesome!
THANK you Michael. I tried to give the teeth the same color as his eyes - so, they would kinda fit. And I was afraid, when I make them darker, you may not notice
Malcolm, THANK you - that is just my aim!
MANY THANKS my friend - makes me always happy, when you like my work!!!
Thank you Toni, yes, he just is a great model and muse
THANK you so much Pierre, I try to be always productive, but much of my work does not fit to epi And he IS my fave model, he has such a great expression. How about you Pierre? Get in contact with me, and I will see as what I "imagine" you !!!
I love the dark tones, Rita, and you always seem to capture so much character in your portraits.
Rita, the form you achieved with such a dark palette is right on. The teeth could be toned down just a little but a real enjoyable piece, great work as always.
You already know i love this piece. Great work once again Rita!
Such wonderful expression! I love his eyes.
And here comes another James of yours ! Something tells me he is your favorite model ... A nice new entry, you are truly productive these days.
Thank you very much, Scott. Well I thought, it suits better DARK
Nicely done Rita. I like how you can still make out the subtle variations in skin tone even though this is a very dark piece. Great work on the eyes too. Nice job.
