It's slowly dawning on me that I possibly have an obsession with hair... or something.

This was a really tough piece to make with the hair all glowing and the natural light! But real fun especially making the birdies! Hope you like it!

EDIT: Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation. I was a few days late to seeing it, but boy oh boy do I have no words to explain how I feel and the state of disbelief I am in. Thank you!!!!

Before I critique anything, I'd like to say that this is a wonderfully stunning and beautiful piece of artwork.

Now then.

In creating this you clearly had a vision, and did a wonderful job in displaying it. This work shows knowledge of creation and the fundamentals of art. You've incorporated positive and negative space with a pull towards the hair in an expert way. This demonstrates a high ability to create artwork with a digital medium, with great blending of color and different textures.

There are very little errors that I can see. The multiple light sources present don't clash. However there is a lack of light reflection, as with the glow of the hair it would be reflected onto the skin, and the light of the bird in the hand illuminating the subject's face more. You clearly understand human anatomy, however it can see minor mistakes in the length of the neck, which is a bit long compared to the size of the subject's head and shoulders, making it appear slightly disproportionate. However this is minor, and doesn't take away from the piece at all.

Overall this is extremely well done. A great piece of artwork.

I dont like the stars system so whatever.

This piece is stunning, I love the gold lines that separate the hair sections and the overall flow of the hair and background.

the lighting in the hands where the bird is emerging is great.

the colors are really lovely its muted and pretty earthy in color but it has enough variety between warm and cool that it still gives the impression of being really bright and colorful.

the censorship of the breast is very natural and not at all uncomfortable like in some drawings where the model awkwardly covers herself just to hide.

the composition works really well and takes your eye all around. while the birds are good at taking the eye back into the center again, I dont feel like the 'go' everything else is so flowy and organic but they are moving across in straight lines. I think the only bird should be the one from the hands, and i feel like it should cast more light on to the face and having that light on the face would be more realistic with the light coming from the center behind her and wrapping around the face.

i love the tones and the delicate lines. also your signature rocks.

hmmmm...the face needs to "be" part of the picture. it looks like it's popping out. not sure if that's intentional, otherwise i love the freeness of your "strokes" on the picture.. especially the movement of the flashing birds penetrating the body, great job :)

Thank you for the generous critique SYoshiko !

I really do agree with your point about needing more lighting upon the face from the bird, but I felt that it might overdo the piece with excessive lighting, as there is already so much 'unnatural light' from the glowing hair and what not. I was unsure whether to add light onto the face, but am glad that you think so!

Oh I definitely see that. as for doing anything extra to the piece. I really was LOOKING for something because its beautiful professional magazine quality art already. there is something to be said for the way the face is contrasted next to the light bg.  and you might lose it by adding more light. so yep I can see that for sure. I'm a big fan of your flowy hair compositions! and beautiful fems

The softness of hair is spectacular, in my opinion, however, the color of the strands takes the warm color of the sunset rather than sunrise whose tones are usually more prone to a blue / pink.
The digital coloring is done well, the birds light evoke a magical atmosphere that surrounds the figure of the girl. The Suardo she lost to observe the bird in the palms of the hands makes me think of a dream, as if the image itself was a fragment of a dream that you have shown in the work

compliments I really like this job

I apologize for my bad english
