Luna and Ine - the latter character I've never painted before. I rather enjoyed it. Painting old faces is something more like rendering a craggy landscape whereas with younger faces, I feel I almost have to struggle against the medium to create a smooth surface. The whole image sort of turned into a study in textures, really. It's supposed to be dim, but I hope it's not too dark for most monitors...always hard to tell. Painted from scratch in Photoshop.

I love it! My favorite part is the old woman. She looks really realistic and she looks like she would be someone with a lot of depth. My biggest criticism would probably be that the various items and people in the room are not lighted in accordance with the perspective of the painting (though maybe that's intentional?) But it gives the piece a disjointed feeling. I bet it would help if the color in old woman's skin was more vibrant, rather than whiter. I think the white gives her a more faded feeling. But again, that could be intentional. I like art but have very little experience and am not an expert. I could be completely wrong about everything I'm saying. If I am, please forgive me. Please let me know if this critique is helpful, or confusing, or rude, or made you mad. I want to learn how to better critique people.

This is gorgeous. The elder especially is lovely and well done. My one criticism is that the crow's talons do not seem to be interacting with the old woman's arm. I would expect the crow to grip the woman's arm, resulting in a slightly more tense foot position and perhaps some squeezing of the skin; especially with the wing upraised.
