This is truly incredible. The realism is awe inspiring. The eyes are expressive and full of life. The hair has depth and body. The transition from dark to light tone is natural and smooth. You truly are a modern master in my humble opinion.
I am very happy for your comment !
I also really like this job, I thought it improved, relative to others I've had. I try to make the maximum the transition of tones do not stop immediately, is a bit of personal taste. But I also like to draw like a photography with overexposure... but it is more complicated to make that transition, if only because it may not be a gradient "with a nuance continues" ...
Hopefully the next get better!
