This is an amazing piece. I love how the fire reflects off of her eyes and face. The abstract to her body is amazing! The dark background really brings out the light of the candle.

Her expression gives a hint of wonder to me. Also, the colors work together, rather than having them fight against each other. If that makes sense. I also love the detail that is in the eyes.

Even though the lips sort of a bit weird, it fits perfectly in the picture. The lips do give the picture sort of a mysterious look on the girl as well.

Congratulations on the DD!

This is SUPER adorable. I absolutely love this. There's something about the very soft colours of the glow and her skin that really would draw someone into the picture. I'm glad you didn't use too harsh of lighting/shadowing, although w/your skills, I'm sure you would've succeeded no matter what.

My only critiques would be her lips, and her hands. Since this is such a creative and abstract piece, respectively, it's hard to critique, because there's no right or wrong way to art. For me, her lips look a little, too curved, or lopsided, and a little uneven to the nose. That's really one of the only things that stood out to me.

Another thing, but keeping the abstract thought of this in mind, is her hands. I feel like they're a little unporportional to the rest of her body, if maybe they were a little bit bigger. The shading on the hands is absolutely amazing. Something I myself struggle with! Kudos, this piece is AMAZING and well deserved of a DD! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />

This is an image that really catches the eye and has impact. The lighting combined with the tones and colours really gives it a charm that you can't help but love. The way the edges all have a glow that has been created by the light, this adds to the mood and depth. I think the most important thing here is the look of innocence, or perhaps wonder, or perhaps inquisative confidence. The eyes and the facial expression really draw the eye into this. You almost get a sense where you can't help but love her. The dark background also helps to bring out her wonderful qualities. Excellent artwork. Well done.

This drawing is beautiful. i especially like the look on her face, just the confusion that i feel looks ever so slightly silly. I think that this is due to the over exaggerated style you have in this drawing, the massive eyes reflecting the light of the candle.
The reflection of the light on her face is brilliant. her eyes stand out so much because of it while it also successfully lights up her nose and chin, giving the facial expression more depth. Her nose is just amazing, i can't stop looking at it! It is so cute and i think works so wonderfully with the way her mouth is curling.

She reminds me of a childhood character, an explorer in the dark who has just found something disturbing in the dark. Good or bad though? I don't know!

Eu gostei tanto dessa imagem que não pude deixar de comentar.

Adorei as cores e o ar de mistério que o fundo escuro deu.

Adorei o brilho, o reflexo e o modo como você a modelou. É incrível.
