What I like most about this piece of artwork is the way everything is shaded. The artist covers a good portion of the drawing in black acrylic but she uses it to her advantage. For example, the hair is mainly black with few spaces to it so that it creates an illusion, of sorts, that makes it look like it's not just hair but a shadow enveloping her. The face is mostly white with minimal touches of black but the parts that are black are perfectly placed to make the face look realistic. The contrast of black and white is startlingly beautiful.
I feel that the hair starts off well but, as it flows to the left side of the paper, doesn't have the same texture as it begun with. The hair also comes out from the girl's neck which I find rather misplaced. The eyebrow on the left could have been a little darker so it was more pronounced as well.
All these are minor problems, though, when you look at the picture in whole. The emotion in her eyes portray such despair and emptiness that they draw you in. It goes along well with the black running down her cheeks slightly, as if she were crying while wearing mascara. The pink in her cheeks is the perfect finishing touch, showing that there is only a small amount of life left in her and adding a detail of color that really finishes this off well.
What do you think?

I SEE YOUR FACE IN YOUR PAINTING?? THEIR IS ALOT OF " BLACK ART " OUT THERE ..... RED IS THE ONLY COLOUR THAT IS NEARLY AS STRONG AS BLACK . I WOULD OF MADE YOUR LIPS BLOOD RED SO THE VIEWERS FIRST VIEW IS FOCUSSED ON THE LIPS THEN THE EYES ABSORB THE REST OF THE PAINTING . AS LIGHT IS TO MOTHS, RED IS TO MAN. I THINK IT IS A VERY EMOTIONAL PAINTING .

I think it's the way the colors play out honestly. The way the hair kinda juts out on the ends and the makeup dripping down gives it kind of a nightmarish effect (in a good way). The colors are bleak, yet they fit perfectly. again this is a very beautiful piece and it's obvious you put a lot of work into it.
