thanks

Not only do I like the fact that the hair has quite a bit of detail in it. I also like the arteries and things that were highlighted in her neck. They really stood out to me for some odd reason... Anywho..Keep up the good work. That's also a very nice gift.

Thank you! I think I am not as good artist as Steph, but I really appreciate your nice comment!

This picture really is amazing, the lighting/shading is perfect, and I love the way you do hair; it looks real, but doesn't hurt your head looking at it. What media was this done in, it looks like pencil but I can't be sure... Personally, I think you are just as good a artist as Ms. Law, I wish I could draw like the two of you, I can't even get on this site (hehe). Sorry about the long comment, keep up the great work!!

"I really like Steph"...

Guest's picture

Nos, ennél szebb ajándékot igencsak nehéz elképzelni! Csodaszép! Persze azért a modellnek is van ebben valami érdeme:-))

Lovely painting, Liptak! I like your art! I like your style!...and I like what you have to say! bravo!

What an odd argument. I don't think this portrait or any of Linda's art looks like normal people at all. This and all of hers all have a lot of fantastic flare to it. Don't think I've ever seen any people that look like this in real life other than maybe one of those weird fantasy meets, though I did instantly recognize this as Steph. As for the sucking up part... well, I've known Steph since far before she ever became an editor and you drawing her portrait didn't strike me as "sucking up" at all. But that's just me.

Hi, I love this picture. I use it alot for my roleplay characters, I use a paint program to add more colours to it, hope that's ok!

Good job!

Thank your advices dear nameless. You wrote: "If you're going to run around leaving comments, make them useful to the artists, and keep your "opinions" to your personal homepage." Why do I feel that something is wrong with your comment?

Guest's picture

Liptalk and "THE STUPIED LB. ARMY. yall sound like big fat stuped dorks argueing over freking opinions man from what i see every-bodys work is good so shutup and enjoy.

Liptak this is good like almost gave me hartattack.

and "steph" your art is good.(i would say more but than i would be ranting its good)

Guest's picture

Lipták, there are "opinions" and then there are "spiteful rants," like your comments at Katherine Dinger's gallery and things about Linda. If you're going to run around leaving such comments, make them useful to the artists, and keep your "opinions" to your personal homepage. You're only hurting the Epilogue community you talk about. Not only that, but you seem to dislike editor's picks and other things that single out work... If that's the case, why not just stick to Elfwood? Epilogue is based on exclusion. Anyway, that's my "opinion." Sorry if it doesn't have anything to do with the art. Neither did your comment at Katherine's gallery, really.

Great piece Liptak..what a wonderful gift.

mermalior's picture

Thank you Star:)

mermalior's picture

Thank you. Interesting:) Many people like this pic. Hmmm... It was only 1 hour work, and it didn't need any complex technic or idea. It is only a portrait pic with some design element. It is no more and no less. Interesting:) What is the art? What kind of art is more popular? Why do the people like a pic? I don't know really. To build a complex, well-designed, unique pic is more interesting and enjoyable for me, than an ultra-realistic pic. Ok. I like very much this picture (and Step:))), but I'm not too pride for it's art part. A simple portrait pic, nothing else...

stargirl's picture

so beautiful! I think it's my favorite in your gallery.. the realism is just mind bogglind.... *.*

I love this portrait, her hair almost has an ancient feel to it...Greek-like I would believe. And the designs on her face are a unique touch. Great work. Smile

Guest's picture

Aaaww... such a sweet gesture, and so beautifully rendered.. I love it'

mermalior's picture

Thank your nice comment!

Guest's picture

For sure, you do a unique kind of art. Extremely beautiful and with a special feeling. I feel theres not only drawn/painted pictures in your work, but a lot of grace, passion and epic feelings. Be sure: youre one of the best here!
Excelsior!

Though I admire Stepanie's art a LOT, I haven't seen a picture of her. This does, however, remind me a great deal of an American figure skater named Kristi Yamaguchi! So maybe it's fantasy after all! That aside, I think you have done a lovely portrait and if this looks as much likes Stephanie as everyone says, she should be flattered and you get kudos!

Guest's picture

First off I love all your stuff, my fave being your items. *drool* love the ice sword, I chose to commment on this one because it the most not like your style. but I love it, it is sooo life like, I just wanted to make you aware thta this is good too, and to keep experimenting WONDERFULL!!!!

Guest's picture

this picture really sucks, her teeth and neck are very funny, but I also think that Linda is a marvellous artists, fantasy, myth and all spiritual celestial beauties in her pictures, to call her pictures realistic means nothing, have you see everyday one of those seamen or faeries in the street, ha ha.

Art at its best.
