    My friend's daughter is undergoing treatment for Ewing's Sacroma (a rare form of bone cancer).
    I agreed to do some portraits for her.
    Here they are.

    These are very nicely done. I really like the lighting and composition in the 2nd one especially. A beautiful girl. Prayers for a full recovery!

    She's a sweetie. Good wishes for a healthy and complete recovery.

    I can't believe how much ageless dignity you have captured in the first photo. The other two are good portraits of a lovely child, but the first one is affecting even without a background story.

    I agree with otherprof. Number 2 is just a kid in a Picachu outfit. Number 3 comes across as a blatant pity-ploy. Number 1, though, has dignity and raises a lot of compelling questions.

    I like number 1 the most. I also like number 2....but number 1 is really good.

    I can't pick which one I like best, they are all really great! :)
    However, even #2 is a kid in a Picachu outfit, she has such a deep feeling in her face, it just feels like more.
    You did a great job! :)

    Thanks though I've found prayers to be extremely ineffective for curing cancer.

    I don't do pity-ploys and she IS just a kid in a Pikachu outfit who just happens to have cancer.

    If you look closely, you can see the inserted IV tubes on the next 2 images. They allow blood and chemo stuff to be pumped directly into the body.
