Well, I am joking here of course. This is an astounding painting of a photograph. The point was to polish technique and see if it could be done. Note to Blair: Yep, it can.
Painting of Tica by Dru Blair: "After a couple of hours of color adjustment, I've reached the 10 hour mark. At this stage, detail has not been added to the face, because it is best to wait until all the colors are correct first.
There are many areas still to be corrected. For example, one of the front teeth is too dark. The arm is also to dark at the edges."
