Your work is very dramatic. You have definitely developed your own style and that's marvelous. In this particular piece, it's the detailing that captures my eye. Up close you can see your very meticulous use of colors that wouldn't normally be expected. Even the highlighting in the nose and the bubble set this piece apart. It's very definitive. However, there are a few things that I would add to this piece to take it to another level. Particularly your use of shadowing both in the hair and where her head meets her neck. The black that you used for the hair is so dramatic, and that's a good thing, but it also looks very flat. Perhaps if you added some highlights in a few places. Also, because the black in the hair, the eyelashes, and the nose is so dramatic, it might help if you darkened the shadows on the neck a little more making it slightly more realistic. Overall, this piece is very good, the techniques used set the artist apart.

I love how the pale colours of her skin reflect against the pitch black of her hair. The white pen that you use to outline the break in colour, really has a much larger impact then original black outlining. although the blue drip patch on her face does contrast slightly against the pinker shades and shadows, it does compliment effectively. as far as the message is portrayed,I would say you effectively put your point across, the spit bubble is something she made herself as well as contains her mouth, very unique and inspiring. All in all a very beautiful piece.

Aaah - I saw this on tumblr and had to reblog it. You're definitely still one of my favorite artists. I can't believe how fantastic your anatomy is. Anyways, it's hard to choose but this is one of my favorites from you as of late. I love all the little detail in her hair. The bubble is a cool addition. Spices up what would just be a painting of a woman's face. Shading on the bubble is great - looks like a real bubble to me!
