    Absolutely LOVE them! Amazing work!
    I love how the “grungy” backgrounds stands as a contrast to the very detailed faces, as well as how the backgrounds match the peoples condition physically and pherhaps even mentally.. :)

    (I’m not sure if you guys get my point, my english is not as good as it should be.. :P)

    Really nice work I love the contrast of the background to the almost traditional photorealistic way the portraits are painted
