Very beautiful traditional art I must say, your shading is very beautiful. The way you have done the hair is very nice and it fits in smoothly with the background.
The amount of details you have put to the background is sufficient and the details on the face are plentiful, you shading is very beautiful, and through it you have managed to successfully highlight all the important parts of the image such as the eyes and some parts of the hair.
The only minus I see is the dark straight line going from the right eye to the nose; it looks too unnatural.
Well, i can definetly say that i like this. You definetly know how to use the tools of the trade. I actually got fooled for a second. I thought this was charcoal intermixed with Graphite Pencil.
I'm giving originality such a medium score is that it's just a portrait, i can't really say much about it, though i like the graphical style of the drawing. that mix of realistic shading, countered with the use of hard lines to accentuate details on the figure is something i like. for example; how the hair manages to look realistic, and in contrast the hard lines you used to integrate the eyes on your figure.
further more i can see you have a great understanding in the build up of a face, you know how to illustrate hair, maybe a bit less on the draping of her clothes, but this is a portrait, so i really the focus is the face instead of her clothing. so technique wise it's technically flawless. Originality wise a bit medium, and it didn't leave such a severe impact on me. but at the end of the day i really like it.
wow! this piece is so lovely! I can see the amount of effort you put into this! the hair feels so real to me and although I have only a slight problem with the face, it doesn't obstruct the overall feel to this! Love it!
Her hair looks extremely realistic and what makes her unique is that she is not one of those perfect girls with perfect features, she looks like an ordinary woman, and your pencil skills are just amazing
I like it, i like technique, I like shading and the way you did her hair. Also, here eyes looks really wonderful. Only thing thet bothers me is her arms... Aren't they too thin, compared to her head? Besides this - great picture, aye.
This is brilliant. I love how sharp and clean your lines are in the face, especially those eyes, they were the first thing i looked at when i saw this piece. Her face is very well structured and her hair is amazing I love those light wispy pieces, its like there's a small breeze around her and there's light catching the errant strands. Marvelous job on the shading as well.
I like your style, there is something about the harsh pencil lines and the soft shadowing that reminds me of watercolours. I like how this gives a loose and spontaneous feel to the picture, as if you were just observing a unknowing muse. It's a nice effect, which make it all seem a bit closed in and personal.
Very good job, I like your style and how you underlined with neater and darker lines her essential expression's traits. I also like how the rest of the drawing looks smudged and less contrasted. It's a clever trick to lead the spectator's eyes towards the woman's face, which I believe is the focus of the portrait.
