Augusto said...

Nice Ryan. She's got a certain uh "sex" appeal to her which means you did a great job. Not trying to be a pig or anything, but look at those eyes!

This is great, Ryan. I love that heart-shaped hat thing on her head. I don't know what to call that. And the colors are perfect, as is always the case with your work. When the whole card deck's done, I'll buy one.

This is a great one. I love the palette and repeated shape themes. She's got a great face. Real personality in there. Dunno why I keep seeing celebrities in your work, but I feel a touch of Natalie Portman in there.

I'm hanging her up on my wall next to the Queen of Diamonds.

Tim Bye said...
