    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)

      I get your point, it’s just what I was gonna say…

  • These are amazingly beautiful!!

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

  • Oh good lord! These are just wonderful.
