Awesome, I love these! I really like bright backlights and color palette!

Are they painted from imagination or from photo references? If so, where do you usually find them? (I have problems with finding fitting photo refs...)

photo reference :D and i usually get them from TV shows, deviantart, movies, etc. once you see someone good looking you wanna draw all it takes is a bit of stalking and you get some pretty nice pics in no time :P

The leftmost is certainly Yvonne Strahovski [my dreamgirl], but I can't place the other two.

asdflgkhfdksja; easier said than done, dude. XD;;; These are all really nicely done. * A* I heard from Fishagon you've joined us on the bandwagon. I'm booked with work till the end of the year but I kind of wanted to see what your Daniel looked like so I could match Lenore to be his antagonist in style and personality. So whenever you have a colored draft or a reference up, I'd love to see it. o uo~

Like eyes, mouth are holes in peoples bodies so if you make that hole as black as ones where eyelids go over eyeballs you might achieve the effect. Also in this context, lines are areas where surface bends beyond our view.so on mouth and eyes those lines are parts where surface from outside touches the surface inside.
