I have not been on Deviant Art in ages, and was about to give up on the Daily Deviantions until I came across your work. Your portrait work is hauntingly beautiful and stunning! Truly worthy of recognition. You have a true gift for capturing people's emotions and bringing the atmosphere in your portraits to life.
Wonderful atmosphere, and thanks for a hi-res file - the brush work at 100% zoom is gorgeous. It is heart warming to see Tibetan-themed fine art and to show the world these beautiful people who have suffered so much.
I don't understand why so many people nowadays automatically think that a painting is good only if it is photorealistic. Come on, people, don't be so shallow!
