as always beautiful work.
wt i see is the 3 stages of a person that is youth adolescence and old age. the way you have presented it is stupendous.
the color selection is good . then again the detailing provided is really nice .
the way u show how interconnected these three stages are nice.
according to me the picture is really appealing .
I just think adding a little more detailing to their faces showing a bit of their emotions would've been better.
the picture in a whole is an inspiring one for upcoming artists.
do continue with your great work whoooo!!!

Vision
Interesting way of presenting in a single image the changes of the states of mind; like no frontiers.
The employed colors do not make it so depressing.

Originality
In order to present mixed the faces more than 3 faces separately


Technique
In general I like your style, and in this case it was applicable much more for the susceptibility of the changes.
Transparencies reinforce the idea: The changes of state can be subtle.

Impact
Enough visual force to attract the look, the semi-rounded shape helps to hold a constant journey for the whole image.

Suggestion
Make it vertical <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

This work is really fantastic. It houses the three faces and, somehow, blends one perfectly in with the other two. The boldest face is the apparent primary portion. The strongerly ghosted/faded image's closed eye being the smirked mouth of the boldened face. Actually, there's a bit of the bottom on the upper right face even appearing to be strandsof hair on the lowest face. As well as there being a slightly ghosted face portion on the left side of the picture. The lack of stability brings in the multitude of the portions. Please know that it is truly genius. And, it leaves one primary question: is it all the same person with just different angles of their face?

I really like the use of pen in this piece, I feel like it gives a nice dimension to your artwork with shading in 4 different mediums. The only thing (if anything -.-) I might recommend would be that there may be just a little too much empty space on the left hand side, and composition wise if you added even just a couple of watercolor splatters I think my eyes would want to move around the painting just a bit more. As of right now the first thing I see is the nose of the center face, and then I slowly veer to the left. Of course even without that this piece is amazing, and your work really speaks for its self, and I am pretty sure I am not the only one saying that. Also, this piece does have a lot of great quality detail that you do not see on the first look, but really starts to stand out when you look more closely. All in all this is an incredible piece, your mastery of this multimedia style is undoubtably superb, and great job! ^.^

There is a wonderful sense of movement in this piece, and very haunting at the same time.

Feelings of regret, remorse, or a deep sadness stares at the viewer from behind the single, central eye. It is as if the figure is calling out for forgiveness. Yet, when the eye travels upwards, we are greeted by the hopeful, distant gaze of youth and optimism. It's such a great juxtaposition from the central face.The bottom most figure is interesting and feels a little out of place, although it does add a strange fullness to the final piece. On its own, there is nothing overly grand or impactful. But, in the greater work, it helps triangulate the viewer's eye to the central figure, which I take to be the main focus of this piece - and that is a good thing for the emotion and power therein is fantastic.

The piece loses a little in originality mainly due to the artist's gallery being full of similar style art (which is all gorgeous!). So the low score here is not a bad thing, since this style is too beautiful. The impact is strong through the central figure, but the other two figures bring that impact down a notch. Technique is great. I love the use of different mediums in art and this helps give the artist a voice and style.

Love the use of tones and the watercolour was an excellent choice of medium. It really adds to the expressiveness of the piece.
