I am thoroughly amazed at your skill that you employ with the texture of your hair portions of this piece. Top of head hair and the eyebrows. eyebrows. For years, and i've been illustrating for many. I still strugle with hair. mostly eyebrows. Your flesh textures are well crafted and looks like you spent a great deal of time to the attention of the detail of this. The color choice is brilliant. I'm struggling to get at whether your reaching for a deep blue or an imperial purple. I just can't avoid purple myself. You've captured the portrait of someone who radiates. great beauty. I don't know as to whether your painting a portrait of yourself or someone else. I thought maybe you might have made that clear in the title of your work. The work seems quite anime. I'm guessing your going for that. Excellent work. Very striking. I'm wondering if you might divulge which software you used to create the piece if you wish to. Unless I am that tricked and this is not a computer graphic but instead organic piece of graphic. Beautiful eyes. One last note. I was also quite engaged by your other work that you spent on tree's. Amazing.

You need more space between the eyes. You should have enough room to fit another eye between the eyes. Also the nose should be one eye width. You can Google the rules.

The technique and the colors are very nice. It looks like you put a lot of time into her! There's lots of details in the eyes and the teeth don't look messed up like some people's.

Great job :)

The face is really well done, the eyes in particular. They're quite realistic and have a lot of sparkle and life.

The main issue, with this piece and several in your gallery, is that it's very symmetrical, exacerbated by the thin face and tightly-cropped composition. Other than her collar and bangs, it's almost like her face is mirrored. Have you seen pictures of mirrored faces? They actually look really weird, because the human face is never perfectly symmetrical: i.imgur.com/dLUYOep.png

All the pictures in your gallery that have asymmetrical composition work much better, like a 3/4 view or having the character off-centre. I encourage you to play around a little more. Try some dramatic lighting on one side of the face, or maybe hair behind one shoulder or an asymmetrical expression like a smirk. :)

The only problems I could see with this drawing is maybe the hair is a bit too stiff, along with the eyelashes. other than that this is really great! <33
