You are so beautiful! I love this! My apologies, for faving and running for the most part, I have over 1000 devs and messages. So much is going on I just don't have enough time and energy right now. I have images to look at that are over a month old since they were posted here!

Okay, like... wooaah. :O Here I am, priding myself at being able to do really smooth shading - and I then see this... and the colours are so even! I applaud your courage in tackling a self-portrait (none of mine ever ended well) and pulling it off. :nod:

Wow Sophie.....I am way impressed! I didn't know you also did digital painting! I don't think I could ever do that....at least not people. I have watched your progression and you are really getting it down! Such a beautiful portrait....and lady! :hug: :-)

Looks fantastic Sophie!

Don't quite know what to say cause I have so little experience in this area. I know it has to be difficult getting things just right and you seem to be doing a great job of it. I do know what I like and I like this. :)

I know just how hard digital painting can be. :dohtwo: You've done a wonderful job here. Keep with it until you're happy with the results. Sometimes, you might need to take a hiatus to get back into the mood you had when you first started. I have some projects where I felt the need to stop working a few months to regain my focus.

:nod: That's really good advice Claire, Thank you.......I can barely look at it right now for frustration,
but I will take that advice and leave it for a week or so...and then go back to it with fresh eyes...:thumbsup:
Thanks again~ I really appreciate it! :hug: Sophie

LOL, I've been there plenty of times. Sometimes the drive to finish a piece is just too overwhelming. Also remember, the good thing about digital art is that you can come back to a piece six months after you think you've finished and retouch it (as long as you keep the source file :giggle: ).

I know that this is an important piece to you. Make sure that you finish it when you think you're finished and happy with the result. :aww:

This is just a lovely, amazing portrait of you, Sophie. :wow: You are such a beauty! I looked at WIP 1 and 2, as well, and it's interesting to see how you added and improved details along the way. Doing a self portrait is NOT easy! I know because I tried. But you are doing a bang-up job so far...you say this is 95% done, but to me, it looks finished! I'll be watching for the last 5% to see what you add or subtract!

It has been unbelievably difficult! ~ I had no idea how
many colors I would have to use the get the skin tone
to look real.......and the eyes!...fohget abowwwt it!!! :faint:
Thanks for being you~ sweet lady~ :blowkiss: Sophie

You're very welcome, Sophie. Skin tones are the hardest of all to re-create. I guess it's because skin is never just one color...there are always nuances and shadings that make each area a bit different. I think you did an excellent job!

Thanks so much for the compliment and the encouragement, Silky! You're such a pal~
