This is a detail of a painting by A & R Gataveckas, still in progress. 
They posted this work on their Facebook page few days ago, I was so moved by it, I asked them if I could buy it. Turns out - no. 
Here's the whole story - Algirdas and Remigijus gataveckas, twin brothers, both graduates of Vilnius Academy of Art, were raised in orphanage. These series of work are big scale, head-to-toe portraits of extreme detail of children from orphanages. This portrait of Ramune is the latest portrait of theirs, and as all the previous portraits, will be given as a gift back to the model. 
I'm sure it is even more breathtaking seen in flesh.
