Hi Lauren, great to have you here and from one portrait artist to another can't wait to see your work. What medium do you work in? One of the greatest reasons I like artistforum.com is that it is not breakneck speeds and you are able to take your time looking and seeing what everybody is doing. I say that won't always be the case but as forums go I like being here and there are so many great talents here of all walks of life and skill levels. I look at it this way, we all have something to learn and we all have something we can share. So go ahead post your work...
