It looks to me like you paid an incredible amount of attention to the detail in this. It's hard to tell what's what but I guess that's supposed to be the point, it kind of reminds me of what someone with visual impairments might see. The colors are very well done along with the lighting but it's a little messy in some areas, like in her hair (on the right part of it anyway). The only other thing I don't like about this is the stream of tears running down her face, it looks out of place, especially with the way it runs off like a tap instead of collecting in drops. It's awesome, it just needs more touch ups.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
37 out of 78 deviants thought this was fair.

To me, this drawing, isn't only a painting, it's like a mix of feelings to be noticed when you're sad, it's like... uhm... if she was looking at somewhere and noticed there was someone looking at her and she turned around to see that person (which this person is the people that see the drawing). It may also represent that she feels like everyone sees her, but nobody knows her story.
The colors are great and they fit perfectly, like the tonalities of grey on the skin with the black hair, which its mixed with a blue, making it with a "dramatic" feeling or something.
You added a lot of details, too. The shadows are well done and the light is perfect.
Also, the effect of the "looking away" and then to the person it's fabulous, fitting the tears falling off her face and the hair moving with the wind.
This really speaks to me, such a perfect style ;v;

excellent rendering of the eyes! i'm always impressed with anyone who can patiently work with water-based mediums. water color, ink ... not very forgiving ...

Anyhow, grrrreeeeeat work! I am in love with this

I thought things like this were nearly impossible to draw. I wonder if it was mindbreaking in process.

I love your work, it's fragile and passionate with a delicate touch of surrealism. I remember the first time I saw one of your vidoes on youtube and was stunned, and I stil am while looking at your more recent work. You are such an inspiration, keep up the good work :D

sorry for this but I'm supersticious...
... P.M .9 years ago
a person dared Jerry got dared to sleep
... ... in a house that was belived
... next day his friends
waited for him out
side the house.... ..... ..... ..... They had
to go inside and search for
him. They
went through every room
exept the
attic.He wasn't supposed to sleep
there. He was supposed to
sleep in the
living room they went into
the attic.
They saw Jerry's corpse and they just
left because they were
scared. But that
night they all died because
of their
friend. He killed them all for making him
sleep in that house If you
don't send
this to 11 comments you
will die tonight
by Jerry. Example 1: A man named
Stewart Read this and
didn't believe it.
He shut off his computer
and went
through his day. That night while he
was in bed he heard
something outside
of his door. He got up to
look. And now
he's dead. Example 2: A Girl named
Haley Read this in the
morning and she
got scared but she didn't send it. She wanted to know if it was true. She went to school (She was only 13 years old) and that night she died. If
you don't post this on 11 comments tonight you

it's really totally amazing how you draw the face twice! It has an extraordinary effect and it's also a little confusing and I absolutely wonder how you could draw it like this because I think I would become mad... wonderful work!
