Over the course of seeing your eye portraits, I have noticed that your style is evolving into something so very beautiful! I remember seeing your first few eye studies and they were not as detailed as these beautiful irises you have here and what I especially notice is the detail of the eyebrows. Even though that is a minor detail, it shows how dynamic your style is and how it is constantly improving!

The colors are just so soft and calming, but still stand out and draw the viewer's eyes to the center, out, and downward. I love what you did with this! Great job!

Just splendid! Brilliant way to catch my eye! (No pun intended <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/> ) It is great to see how an artist such as yourself is able to capture the emotions particularly expressed by a persons eyes, they tell so much! It really has been captured perfectly here. The dripping effect is also a technique that looks fantastic visually; I feel that the texture of the surface you have worked over compliments this and the dynamic look that the eyes are giving. Piercing, chilling, imaginative, textured AND charming, not easy to make all of these work together! Keep your art coming, it really is an aesthetically pleasing style, and I'm sure many will agree.

Great composition. The tears instead of leading you down lead you into the eyes- right to the focal point.  Excellent use and placement of highlights as well as how your blue shade comes to foreground in the tears.  The scarf is there as well as the edge of her frontal bone/ forehead, but so perfectly understated as to not take away from the focus.  Absolutely poetic, BRAVO

Your style and color choices are very pleasing and I think you have created something beautiful here. The added artistry of the water colors running down the page in the manner of tears running down a face is a wonderful touch. Very nice work.

something like wow?
Your work is amazing!! unfortunately I have seen it on the Internet before, I guess someone is using your work..because it wasn't your name. I think it is really inappropriate to use your beautiful work, but you can also see it as a compliment of course :)

Heh thank you (: It would be helpful if you linked the stolen artwork to me please, so I can deal with it.
yes of course, but it is on instagram. do you have instagram (that's an app) ? the username is ninapolden, so maybe you can search her on the internet if you don't have instagram:)
