This one is throwing me for a loop. Not sure what to think of it - almost looks like a porcelain figurine; somewhat un-real. There is a harshness that does not go with the expected soft lines of a child's portrait. I dunno, you must have spent a lot of time with this, but to me it is not all that appealing. I can't get over the harsh lines of the eyes,mouth and hands - the childlike softness is gone, the face looks too old for the actual age of the child .. in my opinion, anyways. I have to say I like your photographs a lot better than your painted over images, Veyko. Love the hair, though, that is great.

Thanks Matt. Yes you have right I overdo eyes and contrast a little. About porcelain look that is normal for this oil techniques. This is not my best work ( I will try again) because of quality of client image.
Image need to be look like painting with brush strokes not like photography. Here you can look master of this technique. I still learn. End Times Art : Jill Greenberg Studio, Inc. (http://2011.jillgreenberg.com/Fine-art/photos/end-times)
And here is a original image of my client.

These are very cool Vyeko and I like the play. I do agree w/matt k's opinion on image 1 though. For me it's a bit creepy.

Jill Greenberg's work IS fab of course. A very big part of the magic of those images is the studio lighting and sharpness. The processing, which is clearly evident and unusual is the grand finale on the images.

Wow, Veyko, these three are quite fabulous. I am starting to "get" the effect you are looking for. The light in the curly haired girl is fabulous, and the image does not look "artificially sterile", it is very well done. Keep them coming, Veyko!

Thank you Marko and Matt. I try not to copy other works.Wish to develop my own style. Hope will happen one day. LoL Here is one more with little different approach.

I think these are cool images too, and I think image 1 would be great if not for the eyes. I am OK with the "un-real" nature of it...except for the eyes.
