The first observation I made was the emotion in this painting, and how that was deduced was the very straight and (though the may seem random) fully-purposed lines you have drawn on top of the contrast of colours at the centre of the picture.

This speaks to me "everything is inter-linked" which is very true, my view of this character is that, as the author I believe you wished to put more focus towards the contrast of colour than the source (hence there are no eyes to see into), which could be considered a visionary move as you are demonstrating to any onlooker to see beyond the eyes, without the eyes what is there, the true essence of the soul and its emotions, which is the very essence of art.

I salute you at doing this, and hold this painting on a pedestal as it portrays my beliefs of art as well as, yours, the authors.

There is an underlying story here, which is based on the mysterious character you have created, this seems to be your true nature as an artist, I truly respect you for requesting my critiques as I feel I have the honour of getting to know the author as well as your beautiful universe of art, one puzzle piece at a time and for that I must wholeheartedly thank you.

Okay, first of all, I wouldn't change a thing. This is probably your best work. Your use of line is beautiful, I love the lightness of the line in the bursts of color. I think a little yellow could benefit this piece even more.
But seriously, keep up the fantastic work because it is just awesome! I honestly, don't think this piece could get critiqued to harshly because the silhouette is clearly visible and it brings to mind a super nova.
I know you probably don't critique digital work but I would like your input on my new works if you have the time.

When I first took a glance at this artwork I saw some nice water colours and dripping paints that usually feature in your work. Then I found myself looking for finer detail and saw the constellation-like white lines and followed them until I came across a face, then I saw shoulders then finally the person.

I love the way you have done this because you are taking the viewers' eyes for a "walk" across the paper, forcing us to look carefully. Perhaps it is part of the meaning of the painting; you have to look closely to observe this woman's greatness.

There are a couple of paint splashes (or whatever they're called) that are a bit too big taking away a bit of the delicacy of the piece. However, over all it is a great painting and it made me stop and look unlike most of artwork on this site. Good job! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> *applause*

I love that it takes the brain a while to determine where the figure is.
"Losing" someone in the chaos is a great way to represent feeling so overwhelmed.

Wow...before I noticed the actual face of the woman, I saw another woman in the bottom center.  With a blond bun and a puffy dress.  She's looking away.  But then I realized what I was seeing was actually the other woman's shoulder...was that intentional?  Or did I just see that?

Not a critique but a stunned wow.  This is so full of movement and life.  I adore the colors in it.  Breath taking really.

I adore the geometry in the colours...Kind of explains reality. And then she was born in all her glory, all her greatness, all but nothing waiting to collapse ..Ah geometry of colours~

This is one of my favorite pieces of yours.  I use it for the background of my phone (I hope you don't mind).  You are a very talented person, and I always love seeing your work.

Beautiful. I love the way you play with the colors and the medium. It's both abstract, yet highly detailed. Wonderful work! :D

This is absolutely stunning. I love the dark colors and how the little light shines out from behind.

That's why I like her abstract arts, it's just means something in nothing. I'm too lazy to write a critique but I bet she inspired many people :P
