Suggester says: "It's one of those pictures, which stays with you for a long time. A truly horrifying character done with great technical skills. After the first impact wears off, you may find interesting details which give you something to think about."

You really like Michael Hussar I get it but I'd encourage you to find your own creepy style. Otherwise if you become very good at painting and you keep using his style people would relate your work with his instead (It happened to me with Sylvia Ji and one day my GF told me that I was not her... and that´s when I realized she was right, although I completely love her style... I shuldn't try to be a clone). Is just a thought.

As for the visual impact, I think you really nailed it! awesome way to use light and shadow contrast focus the viewer's eye on the face first, and then slowly move to ther areas to discover all the little details.

I'm no expert at color and composition but I'd like you to balance a little bit more the skintone since the face is very red and the rest of the skin seems very pale.

Overall I think it's a great piece. and I'm sure you'll improve as you pracice. Hopefully we all will.

Saludos desde México.

This is expertly disturbing. Can I ask how many hours it typically takes you to complete a portrait like this?

Very nice. Makes me think of temptations and making bad decisions.... over and over again, but all she has to do is reach up and take a hold of life and not let life control her.
