Now this is an amazing piece. The first time I looked at it, it registered as merely an impressive traditional painting. However, the more I look into it, noticing the motions, the details, and shapes, the more I am drawn into it.

The use of black and white, which I am generally not too fond of when using such media, works perfectly for this piece. The simplicity, minimalism even, of the concept, also leaves little more to be desired.

I have to say, I am very impressed. You clearly have an excellent grasp of anatomy and a solid base of realism, but you also have vision, and a lot of imagination. You manage to bring a poetic, dream-like quality to an an otherwise unimpressive subject, giving it a power that draws in the eye.

The little details, splotches, lines, drops that trickle down, do not only seem deliberate, but also perfectly placed, as if, had they been placed in any other way, the whole thing would have been ruined. They give the painting a feeling of chaos, of casual, passionate creativity, and yet they seem strategic and meticulous.

I only have a very, very tiny and ridiculous complaint. Exactly behind deepest curve of the female figure's back, the grey strokes of the backround seem a little forced. I think the reason is that both the level of her hips as well as the level of her armpits, this grey strokes seem to be trying to cover "mistakes", areas of lighter grey. Due to that 'effect' of being framed up and down by lighter grey, they stand out too much. They almost feel like they've been added after the whole thing was finished, to cover something up.

Anyway, that's just nit-picking, and me being an annoying bitch.

You have real, ground-breaking talent. I am looking forward to giving you five stars in the future, because I am sure that sometime soon you-are- going to paint something that will blow our minds completely.
What do you think?

Though the figures pose is so calm and introvert the distress can really be felt throughout the blurry, sketchy design of her form.

Wow, I think that the best way I can describe this is Masterful Messiness. I absolutely love the rough brush strokes, it's loose mark-making but every stroke/splatter/drip looks very intentional.

It's great how it looks like you 'carved' some areas with the acrylic. This is wonderfully chaotic and (at least in my case) invokes emotion in the viewer. For some reason looking at this makes me think of a shattered and distorted Classical sculpture - partially I think because of the grays and whites plus the texture reminds me slightly of marble...albeit destroyed marble.
:D This is wonderful :heart:

Very fresh style. Nice work

crit:
Love the visual textures at work here, though the frantic areas like the lower torso and hair are a little more effective than the smoother strokes of the arm. I think the reason behind this is that the rough more textured areas look more intentional somehow, more of a style of working, where the arm, and parts of the shoulder simply look hurried and therefore made less important.
For me I think it would be interesting to see more interaction between subject and background, with the free and loose marks that make up the figure being used to work into the ground rather than just painting onto a flat, prepared surface.

Still a very nice work. Would love to see more 'real' painting around DA

Overall, quite wonderful. The black background would almost be too dark, if not for the stark white to counter it out. The insinuated shading using harsh brushstrokes lends it a certain softness, contrasting beautifully. Honestly, my only concern is that the pose of the subject's arm is a little static. But regardles...A+!
