    Well, this eminently critical philosophy teacher thinks you’ve done a swell job of rendering 13 as 17 and a half, cropping and blending. Lovely delicate face. Emanates naturalness. A+

  • yay!

    What a powerful portrait. It doesn’t invite your attention, it grabs it; doesn’t encourage your engagement, it demands it. For me this is a portrayal of humanity, our species’ unique capacity for joy, sorrow, mystery. On the one hand I feel compelled to ponder the message in those eyes yet on the other I feel locked out. For me her gaze is impenetrable. And yet it is I who is made to feel vulnerable staring into those eyes.

  • i know exactly what you mean about her expression. she looks like that in a lot of my porttraits of her. compels the viewer but locks them out. it’s very interesting.
