Was this one done in acrylic? Looking at the super smooth blending on the skin - if acrylic - did you use a retarder. Great sheen on the female! Even the handling of the fingernails on the hand!!
Also thanks for posting the step by step Tarzan. I like to see how others work through a piece.
Because you are a detail type painter (where as Frazetta was very loose) Do you get a pit in your stomach in the middle parts - like when you painted in the jungle and started washing in the figures? Just from my own perspective I sometimes get a bit flipped out in the middle (some sort of twisted control issue / fear - could be lack of time in) - it all gets better at the end. Maybe sheer experience works this out - confidence in approach etc.

Yes, Dejah is splendid indeed. She's exquisitely detailed, wow! I like this architecture too, it's been kept up and not in ruins.
Could that be your hand there? For some reason I'm getting that idea. Probably cuz it looks so real.

I can see that the lighting from the atmosphere is fairly diffused, but (with the rim-light) it seems a little odd, to me, that Thoris is not casting (much of) a shadow (on the wall/floor) or a reflection (on what appears to be polished marble).

I do like the colors, in the painting (particularly in the skin), and the hair looks excellent. The face, here, reminds me of Lynda Carter's, haha (I am sure this is unintentional, and you may not even see it, yourself).

No one asked for my opinion, of course, but there it is, just the same.

I wonder if you'd feel that way if she wore a three piece business suit... ;-)
