I am so glad you included the music with this picture. I listened to the song while studying the image, and this girl IS Hljómalind. I am struck by how much feeling is contained here..the cold tones you used are very effective..it's exactly how I see the song in my head..cold. But very beautiful. And the textures are great. You chose a great medium, and you are obviously very talented with it. Composition/placement on the paper is nice. I love asymmetry. :) Her hair is probably my favorite part..it's almost like clouds or man of war tentacles. I'm sorry I can't give you much improvement critique..the only thing that stands out to me is that her right eye (our left) is substantially bigger than the other one, and that sort of throws me off. I don't know if deeper shadowed areas on her skin would help or hurt, because it's the exposure that really makes the cold effect. Also her thumb seems slightly awkward..but now I'm being nitpicky. =P This is excellent work here, though. I am so impressed, and glad to be listening to good ol' Sigur Rós again as well. Thank you so much for sharing. :)

This is just more beautiful than I am able to put into words...

I just have seen this a long time ago, thought of it now and then, and just at this moment, when hearing Sigur Rs' incredible music, remembered her pervasive, yet other-worldly view again...

An eerie but fair, long lasting impression you created, one can say... ; )
Thank you so much!! :heart:

i like this picture a lot
the eyes make me feel like she lives in an imaginary world where she sees things that i dont...which would be ok i guess...and that in the picture she is looking past me cause she sees something more interesting behind me...that i dont see...or that i dont care about cause id be just some normal human who is boring and only sees what i want to see...even if what is behind me is something amazing
which probably isnt true...just makes me feel that way
love the hair though

Love the motion of the hair. The whole picture has a nice "icy" feeling to it.

Great work! Like most of your other drawings but ive one little prob with it: i guess the face should be like a little bit more left because now it looks like shes wearing a mask... Hard to explain in English :D
But as i already said nice work!

It's not often I find images designed to correspond with songs that stop me in my tracks quite like this one has. Sigur Ros has a very special place in my heart and this is a breath-taking piece of work.

Hmm I must ask you, how did you began drawing with watercolors? I always think it is easy, but when I tried...it wasn't! :( And hmm well it is hard to me... do you have any advise?

The gesture is great. I love how you made her eyes punch with that saturated red on the waterline. You didn't try to control the watercolor too much but maybe it would be nice if you really let the watercolor do it's thing more in some areas. I do wish I could see more of her right hand. I believe it's there and it didn't bother me at first glance but after studying the image it almost appears that there is a third arm on her far left with the wrist and back of the hand pointed toward the viewer. I feel like I would like to see more saturation of color in the dark shadow that separates her upper and bottom lip. A small punch of red as in the eyes right there would give that awesome triangle color repetition that always works well.

After looking around DA all day to find an image worthy to favorite I finally found it.

im sorry, Im not good at critique- but I can tell you that this is a lovely, striking picture which made me want to fave it from the thumbnail.
Her blue hair and how it frolics outwards like the ocean is lovely- its wild but conservative at the same time. I adore the shape of her shoulders, soft and round. She seems vulnerable, yet she is not. I like this picture very much.
