Firstly, she is adorable :la: and I should begin by complimenting you on getting more than used to SAI, this work shows how comfortable you are with your medium :clap:

Conceptually, she is quite an intriguing creation.
In terms of artwork, I must congratulate you on those extremely well painted eyes. They are so spot-on, and combined with the expression you've given her, I think it conveys a lot about her character and mood. Your choice of colours for her body are wonderfully balanced. And you've paid such close attention to details of shade and light, and how light behaves when reflected off a watery surface :) I also found your decision to end her hair in a pool so very balanced, it really does a lot to make this painting feel well-rounded and complete.

My only suggestions would be, firstly, that perhaps you might want to consider reducing the amount of bright/shiny reflection spots on her hair, if only because their frequency and intensity is somewhat distracting and uncomfortable until one gets used to it. And the secondly, that, just like the drop like shape above her ear, you might want to consider adding a slight bit of stray drops down the rest of the length of her hair. I sincerely think that it would make her already beautiful hair so much more dynamic.

I hope that's helpful, I found your piece in a feature for :iconprojectcomment: :)

sorry for the (extremely) late reply! i've been really busy lately.

but i really appreciate the critique! especially about the water reflections.
i was worried they were too much, so now i know to tone it down a bit.

once again, thank you so much!

That's a cute little character!

The colors in it first caught my eye.  I've always been partial to blues, and the way you've featured it here got my attention.  You did a fantastic job with the hair.  The little shimmers running down it absolutely make it look like water, yet in the dark patch you have those long vertical lines which remind us that it is her hair.

Initially I had thought her eyes were the same color as her hair, but they are a bit more green.  Not a huge variation, but enough to make them contrast a bit with the hair.  This seems like a smart choice since you again did great highlights to give them a wet texture, had they been the same blue I think they might have faded in.

One last detail I really enjoyed was the shading.  You start it with a darker skin tone, but on the areas over the water you added that blue reflection.  I just thought that beautifully merged the warm skin tones with the cool blue palette in the rest of the image.

I found your picture in :iconprojectcomment: 0 Constructive Comment's gallery.
