I'll wait for as long as it has to take=). So i guess you're familiar to AD&D =) great... then you know who Elminster the sage is=)... well Jessica Greenstaff is level 32 (high level campaigns) and that's about the same level as Elminster=).... A chain lightning=) wonderful! Whoa. Elminster is one of the Mystra chosen. Cool character you have there, Hatman. Chain lightning would look awesome, wouldn't it? Streaking and dividing from her fingertips...or could draw the Staff of Lightning and Thnnderbolts...and yes, I'm familiar with D&D. Started playing with first edition rules when they were in use! *LOL*

WAY COOL! I, as thou, started off with the first edition=)... now I use the 2:nd edition, coz i don't like the 3:rd... She actually HAS a The Staff of Lightning=), but she often uses "The Staff of the Ancient Gods". It's a very powerful artifact that was given to her (personally) of one of the ancient=)... it grants her extreme powers.. but instead of doin like Elminster (sit in his tower) she wanders the realm with her husband and solves all sorts of trouble... Cool! This staff isn't the same one by name in the Psionics Handbook 3rd Ed., is it? Doesn't matter. I think I can incorporate the staff into the image. Hmmmm, lightning from the staff. Now that sounds cool...

::reads all the comments..er... dicussion...er.. something like that:: O.o I like your character... One of my dads met his first wife through D&D.. he had an awesome character.. the guy worshipped a silver teddy bear.. it was funny.. He was a coward.. but was required by the Silver Teddy Bear (I hope I'm getting this right.. I'll have to ask him next time I see him) to rescue damsels in distress... He wouldn't fight, but he would go through hell (Are we allowed to say H.E.L.L. here?) to rescue her, as long as someone else fought the battles...

Whoops, my mistake! LOL, I took a look at your gallery after I posted, and apparently, you did almost exactly what I'd suggested with the contrast. So, just forget I said anything. 12 Take care.

The shading is absolutely gorgeous.. I can pick out a few things wrong with the anatomy, but they're nearly impossible to tell, so I won't bother. One thing I would like to suggest is to work on the shading in her hair.. I'd almost like to see it darker, to bring out more contrast in the rest of her face. The way it stands now, it looks like pencil, while the rest of the drawing is almost photogenic. Well, that's all for now. My gallery isn't nearly as good as yours, and I only have 4 pieces I believe, but feel free to visit.

Fun fact: Angels were traditionally portrayed as extremely feminine males. Slender things with long flowing hair and pretty faces. Sort of androgynous (I know I misspelled that. I just know it) because angels don't have gender. And, um, whatever you do, don't turn your head around to make her face right side up. For one thing, you'll strain your neck, I just did. And for another thing the flaws really jump out when you do that. Anyway, just looking at it (with me right side up) it's simply a gorgeous drawing.

Gabe, I've been looking around for someone to do a portrait of my wife, my son and myself. I'm not sure if you actually do this, but I would greatly appreciate an e-mail if you have a moment to discuss the possibility.
You have an incredible attention for detail and the drawing I see here, "The Dirty Da Vinci" absloutely sold me, if for nothing else Da Vinci is the subject of my particular interest at present.
Thanks for your time and keep up the beautiful work!
