Wow, thank you so much! :D I love the skull lamp too. It was the most difficult process I've undertaken to get that effect of 'light' and glowing, and I'm happy with how it turned out; though there were a few times during the picture that I was sure I'd screwed up!

I think every artist goes through that feeling sometimes throughout stuff that they're working on, of "Oh crap, messed it up, better just chuck it in the rubbish bin and start over." I certainly do (often!)

You won this battle. Very imaginative in your use of light. and the darker background and the light and shadows of her face.

I can't believe the colouring job you've done on this piece. I mean, pencils and this lightning? Craziness (in a good way, of course).

Beautiful work, really. This turned out wonderfully, and though it looks like it probably did put up a heck of a fight to get to that point, it was well worth it.

Light and shadow is one of the most difficult things to master in art...which is part of the reason why I'm transitioning to sculpting XD

Wow, thank you. And yeah, this picture and I definitely fought! Hehe. Sometimes I love the process, but this time I didn't.

Wow, I think you did a fantastic job with the lighting effects. It definitely catches your eye and brings a lot of atmosphere to the picture. =)
