Great Work!The eyes capture great traumatized look almost a dead stare.I like the nose an mouth you illustrated the mouth damage perfectly.The paleness of the face/Skin emphasizes the drained feeling.The bags under the eyes convey the pain endured.I would have liked to see some runny mascara.That's always a personal favorite of mine.I notice you leave some of your designs open on one side or the other of the face or head.That's great,Im not such a fan of the full outline and detail of every part of the design.Although this one did kinda cut off at the top a little to abruptly,I am conflicted on whether or not that adds or takes away from the overall design.I do like the white cracks you do here and there.That's unique.Overall as with all your work it's GREAT!!! and Im a fan.I myself have 0 watercolor skills/training,so I probably have no right to critique your work,but neway that's my 2 cents.Keep up the Good Work!!!!! In the words of the great Corey Taylor "Stay sick and take care of yourself"

This is beautiful.
The eyes fit well and the colourings of the cracks on the screen and the blood was a well concept. The watercolour hair looks amazing! I just love the textures. I think this was one of the best bloody portraits I have ever seen even if others think it's creepy I love it. I should watch your art more often, and I mustiths add this to my favourites list because it is simply beautiful in many many ways. I will enjoy to watch your art often and post comments, favourite, etc,
All 5/5 because it is so amazing :)

it's the eyes that do it for me. they are really striking because of their intensity and their color and their shape! i also love the lips. i really get a strong feeling by looking at her lips because my lips get really cracked and inflamed sometimes... amazing picture O__O (sorry for the over-used adjective, i hope you still appreciate!)

My favorite work from you. It reminds me of the heroine of the book "Geisha" by Arthur Golden.

There's just so much intensity in this painting without actually looking cartoonish. I'm really impressed with this- there's so much here without having much paint or color. I suppose that's my rambling way of saying I can't take my eyes off of it.

ColorBloX Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
Wow. This painting is disturbing. In a good way. If I had it hanging on my wall, I would feel followed and stared at by it! By the way, I just found your journal and I'm totally blown away by the distorted feel of the drawings. I would say they are gorgeous - but that word doesn't really describe it, there is much more to it than just beauty. Some artists can draw perfect beauties and still don't deliver half the feel of this. I'm awed!
LisaGorska Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
eerie and definitely very beautiful!
