thank you very much, it's actually based on a photo (it's so old I lost the website I found it on..) I just changed the colors.

thanks - (: A good stock is vitally important, though right now I'm trying to get the hang of painting from real stuff, it's funny how one can always sense the difference between pictures painted from photos and pictures painted from living persons/things you got at hand.

The skin effects look great, really. But I think they look better in small size like on your front page, the deviation itself is maybe too big.

yeah perhaps you're right, the messed up hand doesn't stick out that much when it's viewed in a smaller size.
But I'm actually ok with the full size view, I'm glad so many people like it even if the hand is total crap and the whole thing is just copied and really old.
thanks for the appreciation and critique!

Der erste dem der Titel gefällt, glaube ich (:
Mir ist einfach keiner eingefallen, ich fand das Foto so schön dass ich es abmalen wollte.
Inzwischen ärgere ich mich dumm und dämlich über die misslungene Hand.
Aber vielen Dank,nochmal! (:

Beautiful work, I really like the use of warm versus cool color to guide the eye through the image as well as show form.

I think you could have gotten away with saying it's not sexual (even though the viewers would know better) and had it on your front page?

It's really beautiful work.

I think I should manage to upload (or create) more and better stuff so that people aren't frustrated when they come to my gallery after seing the featured piece.
Some of the other works you featured are already at my favourites, or the artists in my watchlist (or both) :D

Thank you very much, also for the other favourites!
At some point those were the things I tried to achieve painting that one.
But at some other...I really liked using just those colors at that time. I used them in a lot of watercolors, this one only came out the best. :)
