I really love this piece! To be honest, the contact is my favorite of all of yours~! The colour is so pretty and fluid. The tentacles are very nice, but I wish they were a little darker. The pearls are very nice and the the glitter is very pretty. The bit of hair we can see I find a little distracting, but that is mostly just personal taste. The colour palette you chose is very good. I am a big fan of your work and I really like this eye art! The idea is very neat and you executed everything very nicely! Excellent work, as usual!

wow, this is really cool!!!! i love that eye colour, its beautiful!! i love the pearls stuck on they add some ereal class to it<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> lol. i would have gone with purple glitter i find pink less octopus-y. i would have cropped you hair and ear out of the picture it draws a little bit away from the beutiful eye artwork.
i really love how, and im not sure if u did this on purpose or not, that wet sort of look towards the left side of ur face. its really cool!! i love this a lot. awesome as usual!!

Only my second critique but i'll try <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>
This is a beautiful shot! The color of the eye is outstanding, an amazing array of colors, also how you did the make-up, very detailed and original. All the colors you chose go together very well, and seem to glow a bit in the light. The many designs are very unique, I love how they fit into the picture. The way you're looking also adds a nice touch to its beauty. Your technique is great for this photo, just like all you photos. All together, this is a beautiful piece, also a great impact and vision. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> Great work again!

Well, I'm not the best at critiquing, but I can say you have do a magnificent job! I love all the different colors you used, they all blend really well together. I also love how you didn't just use one or two elements for this, you used many, which makes it look even more amazing. The eye color is really well done, especially since there is not just on color, there are different oranges and pinks, and blues, as well as that nice purple. I think the way you are looking also gives the whole thing a nice touch. If you had been looking directly at the camera, it would not have been as interesting as it is like this. In all, this is very imaginative and fun, and definatly has the great Pixie Cold touch we all love! Great job! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I've never worn makeup and I'm a senior in high school... Do you have any tips on what colors I should use if I'm tan? :/ (I live in Hawaii but I'm not DARK tan, more like a golden tan xD)
