Artwork Description

Faces. Or masks? People are different. Life is polarity. There is Steph Law on one side, and Linda on the other. I have to confess: they both inspire, only for different reasons... Anyway this is ONLY a picture. And I hope you like it! --- You can find the photo reference here:

Can't believe I didn't see this sooner, tells ya how much I'm with it. You captured Linda's face masterfully, she looks so enchanting here (as we've found to be custom with Linda). Very impressive!

Thank you Chris!

This is great. When you meet eyes with her its like being punched in the stomache. So much power you are able to convey in your work!!!

Hey Jessica! Thank you so much! I really love your art, and I have to confess: many of your pics gave me inspiration. For example your 'Northern Wind' pic, what is a similar play with hair, and your 'The Lady Of Shalott' (my new discovery), what is a technical feat in composition and medium. You are great, and I appreciate your comment! I'm working on a roleplaying rule-book (I make illustrations) so I don't know when will I update my Epi gallery, but I'm sure I'll make similar portrait pics, because it is fun:) Thank your visit, and good luck!

OOps! I missed this while I was gone--so glad to see you posting more of your lovely art! Beautiful combination of linework and shading--such a simple piece to convey so much emotion. More please Smile

Thank your comment and advise, but I'm walking in my shoes. I'm not in frenzy, just I have an opinion. An opinion about fan armies, art god/godess mentality, and similar things. If an artist can't stand the critics - the honest critics! then why did she/he put up his/her art? And it is all about the art, not about emotions. But this is only my opinion. My gallery is about the art, unnecessary to engage in this "hate or not" theme, if you disagree, that's your choice. I prefer comments what is about the art, I'm sure you have your position on "artist-behavior" theme, but I think the forums are better place for your "Guy, you are probably crazy, if you hurt my idol" sentences. So forget the reasons, keep the result, and try to enjoy this picture as it is, a portrait... I don't want a flame here! Thanks.

Amazing art, as usual, but I cannot believe that even you surrendered to the Berkqvist-Butt-Kissing-Frenzy. Goodbye to the last voice of sanity in the wilderness...

mermalior's picture

6 months... Yes I had many things to do. I hope I can submit some new pics soon...

mermalior's picture

mermalior's picture

A Linda fan? Heh, ok:) Thnx

Guest's picture

I love it, expecially the ribbon-like quality of the hair. I'm a frequent visitor to Linda's site ( and thus a fan of her art ) and I think I've come across the pic you used. Very good, just the same...

mermalior's picture

Where can I see your Linda version?

darksarcasm8's picture

Guest's picture

I'm no stranger to obsession, Liptak... This is amazing, as always.

mermalior's picture

I don't know what you want to say with that "obsession":) *innocent* I'm glad you like it! Thank you Sof Wink

Some might say without being experts that this may look a tad absessive, doesn't it ? Laughing out loud LOL
But it's a splendid pict conveying a lot of emotions.. I love it as it is !

mermalior's picture

Hahah, you still think I'm evil incarnate? :] Very lovely picture, though - I'm flattered.

Art at its best.
