This one's my favorite in my gallery, but my style just takes away from her true beauty. Heheh... the only reason it's still any good is because there was too much beauty to take away. I probably shouldn't say that! You can ignore it.
This is a VERY unappreciated artwork for it's quality. I was thinking that I'd find you'd already had 40+ comments...
Very sensitive rendering of the face, the smooth tones are fantastically done and basically flawless. I think most impressive is the hair, though. It's full and multi-toned which is quite a feat.
Perhaps the next step would be to entirely remove the lines defining the nose? I think your tonal work is strong enough to support it.
Well done indeed!
Thank you very much! I only uploaded it a few days ago, and it's already my most-viewed piece, so I wouldn't consider it unappriciated. I'm never completely satisfied with any of my artwork; there's always something that could be better, but I tend to be happiest about things in which I used subject matter that's important to me. Thanks for the compliment
