proconpictures said...

so, what did u use to finish it?

Heather Dixon said...

Beautiful!

sarah said...

Awesome. I particularly like how you've kept darks to a minimum, which really makes her eyes and lips pop. I am always very curious to know how you get everything so wonderfully soft.

Kent said...

Wow, this is just absolutely gorgeous! All of your work is wonderful, but this one just blows me away.

Dave said...

Ryan you always inspire me! (You make my hands itch!!! heheh!)
Have you ever thought about making posters, I would love to have one of your works on my studio wall.

Dominic Bugatto said...

Very cool pic.

Jonathan Hoffman said...

I think the limited color palette is what really sells this piece for me. It gives it a renaissancy sort of feel and brings it away from looking digital. Awesome

Heather said...

stunning, simply stunning! color choice, mood, style, her expression. everything in this piece works so well. :O)

S.T. Lewis said...

I can see why this drawing has received so many comments. Disturbing, maybe a little humorous as well. And very well done.

Ren said...

Love the colours and the way you draw her face. She reminds me a sort of timeless doll....I really love this work!

The pearls on her head complemented her curly hair! Nice work.
