Tracy Chapman by duskflare Tracy Chapman by duskflare
So I took a bit of a break today from commissions to finish up this portrait I started a few months ago. It was really near completion and I haven't really done anything for myself lately, so I thought I would complete it :)

Nice work! It's hard to balance realism while still having some painterly elements, but I think you did a great job doing just that. Don't let idiots who can't even comprehend the work you put into this get you down.

This is pymparticles from Tumblr, btw. :)

Hello there! Thank you :) Yeah it's always just surprising to me that people can be such dicks for no reason whatsoever, especially when it comes to things you spend a lot of time and energy on. I'm over it, but I will never understand it. hah

The details on the jacket are my absolute favorite. You worked so well with the light and contrasts sdbhfbasdhbf. I am in love with this piece. Beautiful job.

Perhaps it would be nicer to comment on the artwork the artist spent so much time on than just make a snide comment about the subject. :\

Wow. That's just got to be the wittiest thing I've ever read. I hope you didn't strain yourself coming up with that one.

Let me ask you something. Her appearance is relevant exactly HOW to her worth as a human being? A musician? This painting as an art piece? Do me a favor and go make an ass of yourself somewhere where I DON'T have to look at it.
