Portrait painting by ~ChristmasSocks caught my eye while I was checking their gallery after reading the suggestion note. The lighting grabbed me instantly because it has a nice candle glow, or a warm sunset on the face feel. Beyond that, the clothing is unique and the collar has a very realistic leather look to it. A lot of elements blended together into one great painting. Well done. ( Suggested by tomoe2005 and Featured by Aeires )

Such talent should be praised and given true rewards; Though I'm not a digital artist, I can pull the traditional valor this contains. Truth is, everyone wishes to be a digital nerd. The most old schooled artists would not breath insults to this; They would wish to have such a pact with technology too.

It's a portrait regardless of whether or not you had a photo.
It doesn't have to be of a real person or thing.
It could be an intro-spective portrait or merely a random portrait.
Regardless, this is fantastic. I am amazed at the colour work.

The metallic sheen on the lips is incredible. Everything has a sort of sparkle that's more lifelike than CG-y, and that's really unusual.

love the reflections on the lips, they seem sculpted. it's also kinda cool that her eyes are intentionally shallow in color - it's clear you could make them appear piercing if you wanted to. very nice work!

You might not have used any photo references, but it still feels like a portrait to me.

The eye brows might need a little work. Looks like they are catching a little to much light. But that might also just be me.

All in all I think it is wonderful pice of work. I especially like the texture in her skin.
