Really :]

Especially comparing to your earlier (gallery-page-4- earlier, yeah I just checked) renditions of her, you have to respect the progress you've made with your shading, colors and... well, pretty much everything.

Impeccable proportions and neat work on the hair. The eye's a bit too white (eyes aren't really white, but you knew that) and the neck feels a little unfinished to me, but maybe that's just because the face is so detailed, or maybe I had to find something to bitch about XD

Respect.

peace

I see it ;)

I left the neck as it is 'cause it felt finished, and when it's done it's done. It's definitely something I would go back into if I had the urge but the PSD's gone down with the hard drive, so for now it's going nowhere!

Thanks so much for your thoughts, I really appreciate it.

Looking at it some more ("it" being the neck), I now think it isn't really so much "unfinished" as lacking a highlight - the entire right half is pretty much the same tone... I think that's what's throwing me off, a little.

Compare the highlights/reflections on the face to her neck, maybe you'll see what I'm seeing. Then again, maybe not, here's where that a funny thing about art where two people can look at a piece and see different things comes into play, I suppose.

And a propos "looking at" I'm going to stop typing now, cuz her eye keeps following me, and I'm getting creeped out.

:D

peace

hehe!

I get what you mean. It should probably have more of that middley colour from the forehead, shouldn't it?
I tend to focus more on the face though, so other bits tend to get ignored!

Thanks again :)
