I'm so humbled by this picture. I was commissioned to do a similar type of work for family members, but this is so much more advanced. You've accurately re-created the style and design of the era while maintaining your own personality.
A wonderful idea to do a Renaissance-like portrait from a photo. Of course no Italian painter would have used a dusky background, but this makes your painting the more intriguing. I hope the person you portrayed liked herself in that saintly look.
fantastic! hope she does give permission to you! you deserve it! the pic is very good! the clothes are so beautiful! and you did a very good job on the face, even if it comes from a photo <3 you're increasing your skills with every single pic i see from you, amazing!
Very lifelike, and the textures of her dress is beautifully done, as well as the tones of her skin
However, her eyes seems to look slightly in two different directions, not by much, but there's just something there...hmm. Anyway, minor detail.
