Soo excited to try out my new techniques and gadgets. Not done (obviously) but hopefully getting there.

Black pearls by Ilojleen
Hello! Lovely piece! Very classic! I like the expression and the draping of the beads. They accentuate the curve of the shoulder.

I gave you 4.5 stars in vision because I think it's beautiful and well communicated. I also think that there are several deciding factors in my overall rating related to the visionary process.

4 stars in originality, because it's beautiful and classically a portrait. It's classic in pose and the overall simple/complex blend. Very lovely accentuation in the neck, the curve of the back (and the included definition in the shoulder blade), and the semi-contemplative relaxed expression.

3.5 stars in technique and I'll explain my thoughts. You should know that a lot of this is my personal opinion and may be counter productive to the style you were going for. I have seen some of your other portraits and they're all fabulous as is this one. I do feel that you could smooth the shading and highlights of the flesh. Her skin seems like it is smooth and youthful. Perhaps by adding absolute darks, and graduated to the highlights you could affect that. Though her skin is brown and represented by the paper you chose, I think there are some missing complexities that are prevalent in your other portraits. Like the contour of the cheekbones, the brow, and the corners of the mouth. Like I said, personal thoughts mostly, it's just my thoughts on how it could be even better than it already is.

The impact of the piece I gave 3.5 stars because it often ties into the technique for me. I love it, but it doesn't emotionally impact me. (Most portraits don't usually dramatically impact the viewer, so this is not a negative thing) I think that if you were to take into account the thoughts in the technique paragraph, I'd have been more impacted due to the potentially very complex lighting vs. shadow you've got there.

Very lovely piece, I'll continue to browse your page with relish. Thank you, for taking the time to read this and the lovely artwork. :)
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST - The West Wing by Chris-Darril
I love this piece, especially since this is one of my favorite films from childhood. I gave you 4.5 stars in vision for using the light and angle of the piece to set the mood. You did a wonderful job. I think that if you added just a bit more light into the contrast it'd be even more stunning.

I didn't give you 5 stars in originality because this is not your 'original theme/characters' but I do love it, and it is done in an original way. Thus the 3.5 stars.

Your technique is stellar, I really enjoy it. I like the semi watercolor feel. I do feel like perhaps a bit more blending in the cloak and skirt could provide a smoother, softer, fabric feel. However that is totally an artistic preference. The roses and petals are lovely, and effectively carry the eye throughout the piece. I think perhaps I'd have gone semi-oldschool and made them VERY red. (to provide an even deeper visual impact) But again this is personal idea and not a retraction on the overall enjoyment on the piece.

I like the visual feast you've laid out, and it certainly has inspired me to go and peruse your gallery.

In San Diego I tattoo a baby Marine. He was a really sweet guy who got this in remembrance of his grandmother. Hope he loves it forever.
