Wow a great piece!

Do you use Photo reference for those portraits? How do you pic colors?

Keep up the amazing work. You'll gonna be a great, known artist!

Thanks Alex!

I usually always use photo reference, usually a collage of many pieces of reference.

As for colors, I always just pick by eye, whatever looks right.  It's pretty much all guess-work.  I'm still trying to train my eye, but it's getting easier.

This is really amazing, you're getting really good at this, how long have you been doing digital portrait paintings. I'm getting into it so I want to know how long I can expect to catch up to you. Take care.
