Thank you. I have to be honest: I am not completely happy with it. The picture I had to use as reference was almost completely middle tones, in bright daylight. For me, that usually equates to a tedious while uninteresting drawing. Don't get me wrong: I am very grateful that you like; it took a long time to draw. I did the best I could with it in the amount of time I was given, but I really had hoped that the client might have found an image with more dramatic lighting since I was unable to pose the models.; dark darks, light lights; maybe 10% middle tones. You know, more theatrical. For me, dramatic ones are less laborious to draw and make for more interesting pictures. A win all around. Still, I'm grateful to have had the project and I feel better about it knowing another artist likes it.

I completely understand, but only because you describe it so well. It puts an entirely new perspective appreciation on it, ABOVE how great it looks and how well you did. I truly think what you have accomplished with not only this picture, but with your talent and trade as a whole is very impressive. O:)

By the way, I switched out the original double portrait I first posted here. I just wasn't happy with it, so I replaced it with this one I recently finished of my daughter, Raine.
