"Fantastic work, Monica. What digital software do you use, to project the image on to the paper? Would love to see your videos, but I don't know where to look. Great stuff!"

"i wish i could draw an eye like this one"

"This looks.. cool. The eye has amazing detail and the eyelashes look amazing. The way the tools were first laid on the image, I thought they were supposed to look like tweezers, which made the image even more meaningful to me."
