Love this! Her hair is perfectly done...shine, strands, color balance! And her skin tone, eyes, nose, lips are all amazing. And you didn't leave out details on the earrings and dress's borders. We can learn off this portrait of Zoe!

WOW! seriously, wow wow wow wow!! I thought that there has to be something that is not like in the photo, but i didn't find it it's incredible, it's exactly like the photo, her face, pose, clothes, hair- everything is so well done! it looks like a photo, it's extremely lifelike, i haven't seen anything like it before and in color especially! This is flawless, perfect, true art, pure! I love it, she's so so so so stunning and this is a masterpiece, you are a professional artist
Many thanks for the compliments. I used tempera and watercolors to the base of color: then i used the white pencil to lighten skin and brown pencils,burnt Sienna and black to darken. For the points of direct light I used the acrylic. For the hair i used ink, brown watercolor and white pencil; For the background I used watercolor and acrylics. Not forgetting a lot of patience and love. Many thanks again.
