i hate it when i get jealous like this, because then i don't think straight and i end up saying something that i really wish i hadn't.

*sigh* i'll just say this before, then, i lose myself completely and say something mean: i think that you're a wonderful artist, and i can only hope that someday, when i'm older, i'll be able to have half the talent that you've got today.

Thank you very much :)
Yeah don't be jealous, it's such a bad feeling.. but if this feeling leads you to practice more and push your skills to the maximum, well that is good :)

Never stop doing what you like, and you will succeed.

The hair is amazing! I am actually in awe of the black satin-cord necklace! :wow:

I've used the black watercolor pencil for the outline so that it "pops out" from the casted shadow on her skin. It really looks like Trompe L'Oeil ^^;

I just LOVE Trompe L'Oeil!!! You certainly accomplished that.

Your MM drawing is a dazzling masterpiece! I can't wait to see what's next. :excited:
