Wow, where to start. This is absolutely beautiful and I think one of my absolute favorites on deviantART. I love that you mixed soft lines- almost blurry and the clearer lines and flower patterns. The pose is very nice and you added a lot of pretty details. For example the septum and the earrings. I would like to see some background maybe? Not that it's really needed though, just a thought. I also adore the brush technique you used for this. The colors converge nicely and make the piece look vivid. The small dots here and there add a nice charm and look a bit like freckles on the face. This simply is a beautiful art work!

If Lilith had a portrait, I rather like to think that this would be it, mild and free... Totally unabashed, unapologetic, and entirely confident. The shades between jade and emerald green, the pops of mauve and lavender, the sudden slashes of crimson and wonderful dusty rose...

The septum ring is perhaps one of my favorite little surprises in this painting, along with the bead in the hair, if only because it's such a natural part of the photo that without it a bit of the magic would be gone. The dreads are a fantastic touch, along with the shaved sides of the head, it gives it this look of modern and naturalist all rolled into one. Like a punk rocker dryad posing for a portrait to be painted by her favorite starving artist.

I also adore the fact she appears to have freckles, which really just to me, adds the finishing touch to this painting. The little drops of mocha and latte on her skin shows so much love to the girls who have this same style of skin. Freckles are like bits of glitter that the sun leaves on you, and I think they are just the loveliest things, which is the final stroke of brilliance is seen.

I think any critique given on such a work will be purely subjective - so i can't make a fair judgement. It's pretty rad. 10/10
