:clap: :clap: :clap:  Everyone has done a great job on their paint along. :yippee: :yippee:  :yippee:
Natalie--superb and love his eyes.
Lynn--lovin' the background and that red scraf
Jennylynn--I like your background as well.
Patricia--I like your accessories-and his complexion.
Tania--nice jacket he looks like a cool dude.

Of course the family got in the way again today. grrrr They finally left. (shame on me)
I had to finish up quickly on this one but I'll redo it when the replay comes out. This guy looks like his eyes are bugging out of the sockets--gotta fix that.

Great job, everyone!  Lynn, yours is especially good - you went the extra mile to get in the details and the dark background is great.  You might want to tone down that tooth of his - it's sticking out and it's the first thing I see in all the portraits.  It's not as big in the photo, or that white.

I wasn't able to join you, but I may try this in a bit.
