By the way, you have some wonderful portraits yourself. Can't wait to see your next piece.
What were the major changes you made?
hello snowman sibling!
i appreciate the soulfulness of this portrait and i think this is a logical consequence of the fact that you’ve rendered her eyes beautifully — there is a mysterious depth in them that intrigues. she reminds me of mona lisa a little as well in the inscrutable tilt of her lips. is she content? wistful? pensive? i can’t quite tell and of course there will always be value in creating art that inspires intrigue — it means the work will stay with you.
one thing i’m curious about is your varying attention to detail to different aspects of this lovely lady. why is her scalp afforded more detail, as opposed to the hair swept over her right shoulder? is it a result of the lighting situation? in fact, i’m quite curious about the lighting since this does seem to be an artistic rendition of a photograph. perhaps you could link it here?
good job with this study, my friend.
Thanks for the critique. Critmas is over but you can crit any of my stuff in the future if you want.
