 I don't know how you do it. I watch your PB's over and over again and still wouldn't know how to do anything as good as this :)

 I think the key is to think of it as sculpting. Also, the transparent pieces have a huge potential for modifying colors, enriching them and making them glow. No mystery, just patience. And thanks!

 Oh yeah... it also helps to have a photo to refer to! (Cheating, yes, but everyone does it.)

 What I find so fascinating is your choice of colours. The way you use colours such as blue, green & purple in your portraits. I've tried and end up with Cocoa the clown rather than Cocoa Channel!!

 19&20 are gratifying comments, since everything BUT the eyeglasses' highlight was just a meticulous copy of a blurry photo. The reflections on the glass didn't look so good, so I made these up. (should just make everything up from now on!)

 ho hum.. I guess being a member of ThinkDraw allows me to gaze at wonderful works of art, and even (quietly) to snarl and maybe sigh, and gaze again and perhaps, just a little, think 'waaaahhh ?'

 .. as for the glasses - yes, wonderful, but just reminds me of a pair of glasses I had where the lens kept popping out of the frame, especially when I was driving...

 This pic looks like Malcolm X - too bad some idiot did him in >: - it is so well executed. (wish i could do this kind of art.) and i totally agree with you, the transparent jewels are wonderful to shade and blend and they do have a glow. i wish each c
