Great Work!The eyes capture great traumatized look almost a dead stare.I like the nose an mouth you illustrated the mouth damage perfectly.The paleness of the face/Skin emphasizes the drained feeling.The bags under the eyes convey the pain endured.I would have liked to see some runny mascara.That's always a personal favorite of mine.I notice you leave some of your designs open on one side or the other of the face or head.That's great,Im not such a fan of the full outline and detail of every part of the design.Although this one did kinda cut off at the top a little to abruptly,I am conflicted on whether or not that adds or takes away from the overall design.I do like the white cracks you do here and there.That's unique.Overall as with all your work it's GREAT!!! and Im a fan.I myself have 0 watercolor skills/training,so I probably have no right to critique your work,but neway that's my 2 cents.Keep up the Good Work!!!!! In the words of the great Corey Taylor "Stay sick and take care of yourself"

This is beautiful.
The eyes fit well and the colourings of the cracks on the screen and the blood was a well concept. The watercolour hair looks amazing! I just love the textures. I think this was one of the best bloody portraits I have ever seen even if others think it's creepy I love it. I should watch your art more often, and I mustiths add this to my favourites list because it is simply beautiful in many many ways. I will enjoy to watch your art often and post comments, favourite, etc,
All 5/5 because it is so amazing :)

The stare is so intense, I also like the contrast between the dark hair and pale face.

This painting is absolutely stunning! I would love to feature it on the first session of the Weekend Garage Show. WGS is hosted through my youtube channel (LeSpooke), it's a weekly segment that will run for about 2 hours every week. On it I'll be pretty much playing DJ with a whole bunch of music from various rock/punk genres. There won't be any video of me since it's just audio, but in place of video, I'd like to feature artists' work in a slideshow format while the music is playing and I'm hosting. All artists will be credited in the slideshow as well as the description with a link to the artist's website/deviant art link. I haven't uploaded any of these WGS sessions yet as I'm just getting started, but if you're interested in having your work be a part of it, I would be thrilled.

A few notes to consider:
-This would be another way to get your work out there for people to enjoy as well as your name as an artist
-Getting your name/work out there could help you network with other artists, mentors, etc. 
-I do not support hate of any kind and so will not feature any art or music that is racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.
-There is a chance that the upload will get taken down due to music copyright issues. Hopefully, youtube will just slap some ads on it and let it fly since I'm not making any money off of it. So worst case scenario, it gets taken down and I can't do it anymore.

There's just something chaotic in her eyes, like there are tidal waves and earthquakes right beneath her skin... It's breathtaking. The white lines across her face and neck look like water reflecting light, and it's gorgeous. Stay awesome

valenciaCheng Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014
it's the eyes that do it for me. they are really striking because of their intensity and their color and their shape! i also love the lips. i really get a strong feeling by looking at her lips because my lips get really cracked and inflamed sometimes... amazing picture O__O (sorry for the over-used adjective, i hope you still appreciate!)

My favorite work from you. It reminds me of the heroine of the book "Geisha" by Arthur Golden.
