Artwork Description

I used water-soluble pencil again...control and smooshiness...best of both worlds!

This really is a nice composition. You used watercolour on it..? *runs back to check* Yup. Really beautiful stuff, I envy your control with those blasted pencils. *grin* I hope to become a member here sometime soon, but it's not likely. *laughs* Really very nicely done. I'll agree with the lips comment, and it seems that her ear is also a little... close up? I don't know what to call it. The nose is just great though! Keep up the incredible work.

I love her eyebrows. I love the eyes too but I'm sure you've heard that already. You have an excellent technique for defining textures. Also I like how you balanced the abundant blues with the warm oranges in the skin and lips. I forget the word, either complimentary or analogous or something, all I know is that blue is on the opposite side of the color wheel from orange, and they do a good job of balancing each other out. Few artists really get good use of the color wheel, but you do it nicely. My only criticism is that her lips look as if they are positioned just a bit too far to the left (my left, her right). You did a great job coloring with the watercolor pencils, those are hard to work with in my personal experience, so kudos to you Smile

*swoons at the presence, albeit written and virtual, of M. Targete*

I won't go into what my husband calls 'those lips'....*grin*

Nice, really nice, except the lips seem a bit out of place to me. too big, not even, something-the rest is gorgeous, i just can't help having my eyes drift back to those lips...

Beautiful, subtle texture in the skin.
I'd be interested in knowing what kind of paper you used; whenever I use WCpencils, my sketchpaper gets wrinkly.

Her presence is very real and her eyes are striking.

Great job with the Aquarell pencils!

whoa...those eyes are riveting! The spiky black hair at the nape of her neck with the hints of blue peeking through are a nice unexpected touch.

Art at its best.
