Is the clothing representing the shell? Because without clothing we're showing who we really. Also we try to hide with the clothing what nobody should see but the few we choose . Like a buisenessman trying to hide his tattoed sleeves or shedding the confining outfit of the corporate world to be yourself again. It seems very fitting from my perspective, but I could be totally missing the point, which you're trying to make
I really love your style. The colors look so lively underneath all the black. It's extraordinaire and I hope I can see more of your awesome work in the future and the associated videos on youtube.
I love how the character's expression is, almost reminds me of Lana Del Rey, and how you tried to go for a lineless look. Her shape is very crisp and clear, but the face isn't comfortable to look at. The hair has a nice volume, but there is one small strand coming down that is a strong ebony, it distracts the eye and makes it seem as if that was a line meant to be a neckline. Here robe seems very drab, and needs more than just a black shape. The shadowing makes it feel more real, but it seems to solid to be an article of clothing. The character's hands seem as if they have been at work, and that develops a better understanding of the picture. Nice! And finally there is the watercolor. I have been intrigued and put at awe by many of your works, and this one is quite the same. Unlike many artists, you did not make the paint blend any features. In fact, you did quite opposite as it seems. Overall, this is a truly beautiful piece of art.
Aver visto, precedentemente alla pubblicazione su deviantART, il video della produzione in time-lapse di quest'opera, non ha fatto altro che enfatizzare le emozioni provate per essa e che hai impresso su di essa. Ogni linea, ogni sbavatura di colore e ogni pennellata, possono sembrare buttate lì se prese singolarmente, ma connesse prendevano il loro senso, come quando da bambini si univano i puntini -mi si scusi il mio disuso di termini tecnici, ma nonostante sia un appassionato di arte e del bello, attualmente sono sprovvisto di queste nozioni artistiche e per tale motivo non mi azzardo nemmeno a scrivere una critica, senza mettere in conto che non l'ho mai fatto. Mi commuovo ogni volta che produci qualcosa di nuovo, e ti prego, continua, o dea rossa.
The colours dripping down her neck and chest are perfect. She looks bruised, but also like she's glowing from within. And the subtle, realistic detail on the hands and nose/mouth sets it off wonderfully.
