My Bio
Viet-My ("Viet-Mee") is a tiny (5 foot), 24 year old Vietnamese girl who looks like a prepubescent boy, and adores eating, and all things related to food. She is constantly hungry and grows excited thinking about what she'll eat the next day.

She is often found eating, but has stayed the same weight for the past six years. She understands this is probably a good thing, but fears that her body is a cholesterol time-bomb and that in twenty years' time, she'll inflate in her sleep and drown in 40 years' worth of fatty deposits.

Viet-My also finds herself drawing, sleeping, talking and laughing all the time - sometimes all at once (with a bit of difficulty). She takes pleasure in making a lame pun or cracking the unappreciated joke. She likes to use her (amazing!) humour to swim out of awkward situations.

As of August 2012, she has graduated from the Bachelors of Law at the University of Melbourne. She greatly disliked her course. It was an incredible 5.5 year-long struggle. Her dream is to now begin the pursuit of Art & Design. She hopes to enroll into design school in 2013, if her application is successful!

Please refrain from calling her "Viet" -- it's "Viet-My". :)

She once fell down the stairs as a baby.

Haha, now why would I be offended? You were just being honest and observant. And I'm so glad you're using it. :heart:

YEAH, Tobie is amazing. His artwork is so expressive!

Hi there! :)

Thanks so much for this critique. I'm afraid I'll have to respectfully disagree with a few of your suggestions though.

I only cropped about 50 pixels (after resizing) off the left, to make it suitable for a wallpaper size, so Trelise was actually situated a tiny bit further to the right. I actually wanted to position her on that side, as it is a wallpaper, and I wanted to give room for icons. I was thinking of moving her a bit further to the right, haha!

I probably wouldn't enlarge the skirt, as I wanted the fulness of her hair to be the focus. Also her legs are quite exaggerated (with the perspective) so if I made them any smaller, it would push the torso out of kilter.

Both of her legs are under her skirt, and in order for the pose to make sense, I had to include them (otherwise I'd have to crop it at the skirt, which would disrupt the circle shape). While I agree the flow of the composition isn't as smooth once her legs appear, I would've rathered this than the mentioned option, I think.

Thank you so much for your honesty, though. :) I really appreciate that. I hardly ever get crits!
