Unimpressed by disdaindespair Unimpressed by disdaindespair
So this is totally going to bite me in the ass. I have been awake since yesterday at 10:30 am. I can't go to bed now or I won't sleep tonight which I need to because I have a long day at work tomorrow.

On the bright side-- look at what I finished! This is the beautiful Estonian model Carmen Kass. Don't you just love her bored expression? Plus her neck is obscenely long and I find that very attractive on a woman.

Aaaaaah Carmen Kass. She lived very near to that place where I'm living right now. :3 And as an Estonian patriotism kicked out  :D 

Beautiful piece! Love the hair and her expression.

Yeah, well .. I'm impressed.      :-)

This is an exceptionally fine portrait, Meks.
Your shadowcraft brings her through in a photo-real manner which is a pleasure to my eyes.

Finely crafted!.. and yes well worth the lost sleep to create.

With warm regard,

Terry

Very nice, but that watermark draws the eyes away from the drawing (but the damn thieves..lol)

Thank you! You know, if people stop being stupid I wouldn't have to put stupid watermarks. Even then they still find a way to crop it off or remove it completely-- I guess at that point you went far above and beyond your way to remove it, then fineeee do as you please, just don't sell it.

I've never ran into my own art though. That's when you know you need to get better, enough to where people will steal your art LMAO
