She is of fire, and green amber. Eyes that wait for something I will never fathom, but always wonder at.

Her eyes are curiously soft. The yellow of her skin... makes it... almost a little gaunt. Very nice.

I do the same, but it's a side affect of the fact that I can come on here, and be entertained by reading my own work... I never claimed I wasn't self centered lol.

I'm generally not a fan of digital art, but what you've done here is breath-taking. I love the layering and choice of colours... do digital colours have names? From my screen it looks like a cadmium scarlet, a colour one cannot deny. Thank you for sharing this striking piece!

Thank you very much! :rose:
I work with both digital and traditional media, and it's been a beautiful journey utilizing the tools of either one..Yes, cadmium red! (though i'm pretty sure that on Lascaux - where this was painted on - there's an unfortunate number next to the color..)

I just looked at your gallery..your work is truly wonderful!
I'm going back again to take some favorites with me..:)

Nikki,
This is a stunning piece of work. My wife, Dawn, saw this one in a group of gallery images and was amazed at how emotive this portrait is. It is obviously a beautiful woman, but there is a definite air of "sadness" or possibly "contemplation". It doesn't really matter, as I believe, art means different things to all of us. I do, however, know this is a "stand-alone" piece, and can imagine this image on the wall of anyones house and most certainly in a gallery. I do not know if you have put this out into the business domain but do feel this one is a "winner".
Thank you so much for sharing this inspirational work of art.
Simon

Thank you so very much for your thoughts, Simon!
This is one of my works that holds a lot of meaning to me, and it makes me really happy to hear that it inspires and touches people..
It has been in my plans, for a while, to make a small series of portraits in the same manner..Your words made me revisit this idea.
Again, thank you so very much (also, a big thanks to your wife, Dawn) for sharing your thoughts with me.
Nikki
