You've done a really nice job with this painting. Very interesting perspective and pose. Proportionally, everything looks great and bravo on the curvature of the hand--that position is hard to make look natural.

You've done well with the coloring, just don't be afraid of reaching for both the darks and lights of the spectrum when it comes to shading. Darkening up the shadows in some areas can give creases and folds depth, while bright highlights will make parts pop. For example, areas like between the fingers, the nostrils, and the crease below the wrist could do with a more drastic shadow. Also, be wary of smoothing all of your lines over too much. Some shapes need hard and sharp lines in order to create a realistic definition. The wing could use further definition to make the area a little less ambiguous.

Overall, nicely done and keep up the good work :)

I love the style on the piece and the subject matter. The colors once again are great. Also, something that a lot of artists have trouble with is hands and you seem to have them down. My only critique would primarily involve contrast, shadows and highlights, and how soft the image is. It's ok to have some hard areas. I absolutely love the eye lashes. Wonderful job on them. Maybe more highlights in the hair and on the nails. Stuff like that. Also, maybe add a few wrinkles to the wrist where the hand is bending. Something I love to do when I have sparkles is have a few small hard white marks because I observed glitter closely and saw little white squares.

I love this! It looks amazing.. even if you *do* have the same problem as I do - blending too much. Don't be afraid to have sharper lines. I'm forcing myself to do it.. and it looks a lot better in the long run. Congratulations on being able to do this on a freakin' laptop, though! Wow! I'm stunned. >_<

I am trying, let me know how it's working out for you. ~ I don't see using laptop touchpad as such a big deal though :S hummm...

I just find them really akward to use. At best it slows the process down. :3
I can't find anything wrong with this piece other than the overblurring. Everything else, including the proportions, is spot on. Keep going with your art. You have a lot of room for improvement; don't stop now! :)

I really like the colors. That's what drew me in to this painting. The perspective is very nice, and her eyeshadow...I wish I could blend eye shadow that well!
I also like the softness of this piece, and really accentuates the femeninity of the woman. It's a really great painting. :)
