This is really good. You nailed the texture! The only thing I can think of is that Nefertiti always had a more stern/serious expression...didn't really smile. But the likeness is close enough not to make the viewer puzzled. 

 

Great job.

The texturing is nice. I think your next step in your personal evolution as an artist is lighting and form. More dramatic lighting would have help to create a more dynamic piece. Here I just made up a light source to produce some nice core and form shadows. Just for kicks added a warm light on the shadow side as well.

Anyway - good stuff.

Happy painting!

My only complaint is the composition. I don't like the placement of the head or the fact that it cuts off. sometimes you have to find the right source materials.

I like the added shadows but I know sometimes it is hard to go back and change something when you feel it is done. The painting looks just fine as it is but light & shadows always make paintings look more real. 

Uberzilla, What program did you use to add the shadows?

I also feel the composition unbalanced somehow - kind of needs a color element On the other side, around the corner for example - nice work though!

For this quick demo of what added shadows and lighting affects could do for the piece - I just opened the file in photo shop and used the airbrush tool.

On a real painting I would have used thin washes to achieve the effect. One should never get so attached to a rendering that you are not willing to add to it.

If you are looking for good digital painting programs on the cheap to experiment - I recommend Art Rage - which has a demo - the oil paint tool is excellent. The full program is also cheap. A really decent open source paint program My Paint also has some nice features, and it is free to use. Both work well with Wacom or alternative tablets.
