Sadness and resignation just seem to be boiling off him.Such a weight of care. I really LOVE this piece at the same time I hate the despair it makes me feel.

I think the only criticism I could raise is that the figures radiating from the top of his head (and the upper sides) do not contribute as much to the feeling of despair as those from his beard.

Your art is alot like Chris Mars'. It has a wonderful eerie, disturbing quality to it. The figures and details are beautiful. :)

Borda I love your work. You are wonderfully talented yet your paintings look like paintings. You have wonderful brushwork and I love to see it! There is an over-obsession on this site for the photo-realistic and I admire your non-conformity...

This is superb. The emotion in his eyes alone is so impacting.

The colour scheme definitely does remind me of Jan van Eyck.

Those lips are either sensual or disgusting... The foldings of the neck are crazy! They say the devil is in the detail :) That hand holding the smiley is very good; the other not so much
