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!

No way this is colored pencil.

It's amazing!

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
