Beautiful painting! I really like the way you exaggerate, or perhaps "emphasize" is a better word, the eyes just enough to make the expression appealing without going to far into caricature.

Dear Anthony,

This is excellent - and so is the rest of your site! I especially appreciate the themes you concentrate on.

Funny, because I'm a Catholic seminarian (1st Theology at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans) who draws, and I have a brother named Alex. And I've always been interested in medieval fantasy too... hmmm. :)

If you have a chance, check out my *sorely incomplete* website at http://jamessmithart.net/. God bless you!
