Muy bien. Me gusta mucho. I'm just wondering why you chose the color for her skin, the sunlight ? Great job . <3

Wow! This is absolutely spectacular! I want to give some constructive criticism, but the hands/clothes/skin/lighting is so spot on! I can't think of anything to point out!

Hi again from Feedback Friends

The perspective on this is amazing. I love how you did the necklace, the beads progressively becoming smaller. You are very skilled at colored pencils. The fabric of her shirt looks very realistic. The texture is perfect. Everything is shaded beautifully. Maybe some of her facial features seem a tad bit too harsh or sharp, like around her nose and mouth, but it depends on the look you were going for. The face is beautiful, it just looks sharper than the rest of the drawing, but maybe you did that to add emphasis on perspective. I love how all of the fabric flows in this drawing and also her hair. It looks so natural and flawless. I love the warmth in her skin tones in contrast with the cooler colors used. Amazing job!

Thank you again! Colored pencil is my favorite medium.
Faces are sometimes problematic for me. I still need to practice a bit more--especially noses and lips.

I think the anatomy was perfect, just could use a little softening. It almost seems cubist the way it is now because of the sharpness, which is not bad at all. You have got skills, my friend! If faces are your biggest challenge, then I would feel really proud of my work if I were you. If you ever want to critique my work, I would really appreciate it (totally optional of course)! Your work is so ambitious. Not many people try to tackle so many challenges in one piece.... here you have anatomy... fabric draping... perspective.... texture....emotion....damn haha

Very nice job! The only thing I would suggest is to not have the face be quite so orangey and saturated. How long did you take to draw this? The fabric is very well done.

Thank you so much! Yeah, I totally agree with you. Skin tone has always been the hardest thing for me to do. I need to lay off the yellows and orange a bit.
It took me a bit over 2 months to do this ^_^
I did it for my AP Studio Art Portfolio~

This has to be one of the best colored pencil works ive seen, great colors, great shading and great work on the perspective.

Thanks! I've found that I prefer to draw pieces with unusual perspective lately--it's much more fun :D

I don't use any of that stuff--I don't think they work very well. I just use lots and lots of overlapping layers until the color blends the way I want it to :D For example, I used over 10 different colors for the hair and it took about 25 layers~

Oh really? Well I just don't know how to do that exactly I guess, it's either too dark to go over for me or just doesn't look good when it's too soft :P
