That is really stunning. He certainly has a great deal of talent. Just look how he captured the lighting. Look at the pearls, the fingernails, their lips and happy eyes. He captured not only the technical aspects of the photograph, but the mood of it as well.
You're going to be rich if he's doing this professionally, but you already are in that you're married to such a thoughtful guy.
Congrats on your new marriage, too! :D

Great job especially with the skin tones. Those are really hard to do. Great job on composition too.

He does it semi professionally in that he does commissioned pieces--he really doesn't like portraits--it's probably his weak area--but he does them for me. Last year he did one of my 3 year old daughter that is absolutely stunning. He actually went to school for Industrial design and concentrated on toy making but the market for that isn't so hot in GA and we don't want to move away from our families . His parents own a printing company and he does all of their layout and graphic work. His intentions were to go to art school after GaTech but never did--I keep encouraging him. He love sequential art, and if you know what that is (comics), you know that we'll never get rich that way!
I can't remember who asked but yes, he did do this one w/ a tablet. He does a little of everything--he has a large Intuous and all of the pens/airbrush stuff but he does traditional painting and pencil and paper drawings too. A lot of times he will pencil things out (if it's a sketch or pencil drawing) and then scan it in and color it digitally. It just depends on the subject.

Thanks for all of the kind words--I like to show him that other people appreciate his work too--and that's why I share it around even when he doesn't. Happy New Year!

I think both the photograph and the painting are beautiful! If portraits are his "weak area" then his other work must be out of this world! I'm very impressed. Also, what a beautiful bride you were!

That is wonderful! He's a very talented artist!

My DH started taking art classes after he retired several years ago and loves to do portraits (as well as other things), too. It's a great hobby for him and he's very talented. He comes by it naturally as his mom is an artist. Does your DH dpaint for a living?
