I adore Caravaggio, and I love your work too. If you get a chance, please let me know what you think of my 'Lily - waiting to dance' painting. There is something similar in the way we both approached our portraits.
This is a fabulous painting. I love the texture of his skin; it looks so lifelike. Also, his eyes are really compelling and pull me in as if he is trying to read my mind or decide if I'm an enemy or a friend. Congrats on the DD! You've earned it!

thing I notice was, that this is really that "old school art". not some fancy computer drawing etc art, and this hasn't got much comments...just WTF really. everybody can draw with computer but thing where really talent is needed doesn't get much attention. doesn't that make you angry?
I love how classical this feels, very much in the renaissance style that I simply adore! You don't see many artists doing paintings like these anymore. That's why this one is going under my favorites! Great work. Truly, a worthy angel.
I feel the same way. I was just going to say "something about this..." but that is much better. Furthermore, I can't tell if it is composition, since it seems rather centered, but something is making this truly exceptional.
So I suppose I maintain. "Something about this..."
Indeed! This is truly exceptional. It is hard to point out just what makes it so, it is that kind of art you just have to experience. You know what I mean? But when you meet the gaze of the angel in that image, it really is captivating!
