This is an amazing piece and I am completely stunned. She looks like she is off to do no good in the evening light. I love the lights, her face, her hair, her hand, her shoulder, and the line of her back. In fact just about everything is lovely. The one thing that stood out to me was that her neck seems a bit thick, and I am not sure how you could change that without changing the whole piece, but it seems that when you follow the line of it it goes up behind her head as opposed to going to it. Still, this is a genius piece of work and I wish I could make something so amazing, and with such good tones as well.
cool! i like how the lines fade off the way they do. don't know if that's a custom brush, or just a feature in painter but it looks good. I'm in school for Industrial Design and I want to incorporate a freestyle look for my renderings. but anyway, your stuff is a great inspiration.
