This is really, really nice. Can you specify exactly how you did it? Did you trace? Paint pixel-by-pixel? I've tried and tried to accomplish something like this (I just submitted my best work, but it's still pending approval). But I can never get it to be this quality. Tips?

Very nice. The shading, proportions, everything is well done. My only suggestion is to try something other than people. I looked through all your work. You're very good at people, but I think you should try other things like buildings, landscapes, or animals as well. It will help you become a more well-rounded artist.

thanks so much! I know I should work on other things, but compared to some other artist the people that I draw look like stick figures. I guess I am trying to concur one thing at a time. But thanks again! I really appreciate it.
