Love the picture, and the little message.
But it's definitely not Shakespeare.

Have to give you credit where credit is due my friend and hats off to this piece of marvelous artwork, just love it!

Its got that ideal sense of the 50's posters that you've seen countless times where they were pushing towards more of a positive look at females and certainly I don't mean its trying being feminist at all but rather a very nice presentation of both beauty and charm with this no tolerance towards haters, lol.

Don't know what to call this style but I rather like it!  Usually your one to add immense level of depth and detail but here you somehow keep the detail and change the form and style of your lines to compliment more of a softer look done on the face and even dare I say a bit cartoonish with the expression and the work on the eyes.

Like your own write up says about brushing off the hate you honestly can see that presented in the image with perfectly placed hand near the shoulder.  Adding to the very good visual details on the face, the choice for doing more of close-up on the picture here is quite brilliant, allowing you to get in all the more serious work your lines and color have to show.

Granted this isn't that serious of an image, heck no!  Like the rather fun approach to everything here and quite adoring as well that off key placement of the lips, bravo.  It definitely does its own magic like simple persuasion of the hand to get your focus and wow just cannot look away either when scoping out her eyes, amazing job on those eyelashes. *jaw drops*

Now onto the  more obvious part of the image here that does the rest of the work, the coloring!  Your work and its quality seems to multiply tenfold when getting to seem some color splashed to your amazing lines my friend and even more so here with that lovely shade of a very healthy looking tanned skin mixed in with that sea of blue, wow!

Especially think you earn some credit for the lovely work on the skin itself and how perfectly it catches the light.  The way the shadows appear more around the neck and collar bones to even where you actually have the face looking so warm and bright with the way the light hits it dude, seriously cannot look away from quality like that. o0o

And speaking of more quality, lets point out some extra goodies you threw into the mix shall we?  For starters a grand job on the cloth for making the shirt bend and pull with so many folds its hard to keep up.  You might call that overdone but I call that being very, very on key to the realism and movement of clothing.  Even become more stunned at seeing you keep a lumberjack pattern going through the entirety of the shirt's design, now that's what you devotion!  Furthermore, excellent work on portraying her hair with a much softer brightness as to the rest of her face.  Often forget that toning that hair appeal brings more focus on the face itself, so you can better enjoy such good and fantastic time spent to getting that expression to look so ideal.

Okay, went off track there for a moment but want to lastly throw in a final wow towards the other lovely touches that make her such a beauty to behold.  Love the extra shine done to draw better notice towards the metal earrings or even the nose piercing.  Brilliant as well looking at the fact you have in all the many threads that make up the hair so you can see how the threads move and even more compliment that cute little blue bow she has on.  And of course I can't forget the eyes, truly the centerpiece of everything in this image here.  Love the fascination and both wonder I feel when looking at the bold look of the eye lashes mixed in with the way the pupils are off busy keeping hate down.  Despite them not looking at you, I feel that they kind are of still somehow keep track of you and with that I say again how much more marvelous this picture is.

Your portrait of your lovely boss earns a standing ovation, no doubt about it.  You've generated an outstanding piece of work and you damn well better be proud of it BGWorX.  Don't make me write another comment to prove you otherwise, lol.

Later,

Hahahahaha You always put a smile on my face every time Timmy my boy!!!!! I'm sincerely humbled my spectacular friend!! :faint: :faint:
My incredibly wondrous friend and studio partner/teacher Arthur worked his magnificent magic on the colors as with all of our art he lends his inspiring touch too!
I cannot begin to explain all the things I've learned in the process from our work together and I seriously hope it not only shows here, but as well as our full portfolio. 

No matter what Timmy I truly thank you for the encouragement you share and even the smallest details you notice. Its been a long road man but you make it feel so worth it! Gracias X infinity!!

Well that's good dude and lets make sure you keep that smile going on nice and strong for the many other brilliant pieces of work you have yet to share with us.  Demand you keep up the good and rest assure I intend to keep pestering you as you follow up with more work as glorious as this. ^-^

It seems like your teach/friend has quite the skills to show-off, no wonder he's your sensei!  Can only imagine what will rub off onto you and your stupendous looking lines dude and hats off to being a lucky one to have such a gifted teacher share their tricks and also keep you drawing from the sounds of things, lol.

Oh its been quite the experience I would never want to take back seeing how much you've strengthened and truly become the great artist I knew you could be lad.  Just to save some extra sappiness thinks its only fair that we thank the both of us for what great things artists can accomplish when they work off each other.  And yeah being awesomely cool and great friends might be in there too, lol.  Been a pleasure to been along for the ride lad but heck its not over yet! *high fives*
