I love paintings like these! The style of paintings almost rough but provide a smooth look, I've been wanting to learn a style like this just purely because the effect it gives. The design definitely suits the area this character is in, the lighting is thought through and overall gives a controlled effect. I'm far off painting like this and i'm never going to stop loving pictures like these even though they're making my face green with envy. But I'm waiting for more!
( I'm surprised this painting hasn't got any more comments. Plus i'm going to stalk you now...XD)
