That's really off da hook. I love the darkness and the pose. Everything about it, really.

Wow! this is simply fantastic! Not only great painting technically, but awsome meaning - well shown - and I love the idea of line drawing integrating into painting.

Wow! Great work, and your only 21! You have lots of talent. If you like this kind of narative painting you might like the work of the Portgise/ British artist Paula Rego, she does great female narritive paintings you should check her out.

Thanks! Actually, I've looked at her work a bit, since someone suggested that I do for my senior thesis work.

This is gorgeous: colour, contrast, subject, blah blah blah. ^_^ I am deeply envious of your skills with a brush.

Very nice work, I love the details, especially towards the bottom and on the yarn. I also liked how the drawing on the sheet was integrated in, its blends well but still stands out on its own.
