Quick picture that started out from yesterdays warm-up that grew into a full on finished piece.

I'm always impressed at how people can capture just the right emotion, just the right attitude in a picture. You have done this splendidly for Kamina and I must say that it works well with the style of art itself. You can tell a lot of time and a lot of love went into this picture and not a single second was in vain. The lighting, too, is impressive, especially around the neck. I would have love to see this done full body style. <3 wonderful quality work there!

This made me think about drawing a spoof promo, 'Kamina for President!' Lol, his slogan could be 'Believe in him, who believes in you!'

I'd vote for that in two seconds.

Great painting!

Makes me believe in the painter who believed in Kamina enough to paint Kamina!!!!


Wait... that sounded dorky.... but... you get my point...? (sheesh--- I need to sleep more often!):lol:

Great job! Kamina is one of the more entertaining characters to come along in recent years. You've captured his essence superbly!
