This can't be a painting! This was such a good job! Congrats on the Daily Deviation. I was just about to comment on how this picture speaks to me on multiple levels, thinking it was a photograph! this is just mind blowing.
This completely blew me away. I saw the thumb and I thought it was a photograph. Then I saw how it was classified. THEN I saw the painterly quality of it. Your work is incredibly lifelike! Congratulations on the DD.
