Client requested the old face with the hair hiding one eye.

Here's that first pass face. He's right. It works better with the hair down.

The colours really make this piece better, sometimes they just make it more colourful but it makes the difference between the Angel and snake more clear, I'm not sure which one is best (2 eyes or 1) but I love them neither the less.

I'm not sure which one I like the best between the two. Hair down looks more sultry, but the hair up with more of a smile looks more playful. And if you put them in different tabs, then keep clicking back and forth, it looks like she's blowing her hair out of her face, which has amused me for several minutes.

Nice choice in the contrasting light color and detailed darker colors. It really adds to her angelic look.

Hahaha, that's hilarious. That didn't even occur to me.

Yeah, trying to do coloring and maintain the angle look was a challenge.

Heh, thanks. I ripped off the painting style from Adam Hughes and the line style from Alphonse Mucha...though I can't really do either of them justice.

The details on the left leg are phenomenal. The combination of hues; the grip of the snake around her leg and; how her calf is clamped down. pinning it in place...! :clap:

Studying it closely, are we? :)

I actually was hoping to give her skin more of a squeezed look, but wasn't quite able to pull it off. Glad you like it!
