I'm not an amazing artist but this is just beautiful. I love the wisps of firey red hair. The eyes are magnificently realistic and you can see the glassy sheen that shows only when you cry, not the mention the tear drips are prefectly placed. I can't express how much i love this artwork, though i'm trying my best. Colors you used for the face is so visually appealing i can't get over it. Also, me, being the one that adores freckles, loves the small spattler you added on the cheeks and nose for that effect. Lastly, the nose is extremely proportionate to everything else, and i find it to be downright cute, the same goes for the lips. To me thay almost seem cracked, not sure if that was the effect your going for, but i think it pulls everything together. Your artwork seems simple, but if someone truely believes that there wrong. You must have put a lot of work into it, no matter how much time you spent. This is my first critique and I do hope I have done your artwork justice.

This may very well be my favorite of yours.

I literally leaned back in my seat when I clicked open the image. The eyes are incredibly intense and beautifully done. The red violet surrounding her eyes is heavy when needed and yet so delicate on the white of the sclera and the bottom lid.The way the colors move throughout are just lovely, and the red of her hair and of the wounds stand out strongly while aiding in bringing out the rest of the details.

The only area that doesn't seem as strong to me is the lips, though I can't entirely figure out why. The upper lip almost feels as if it needs a darker shade or more contrast. I'm not altogether sure.

Otherwise, this piece is stunning and moving. Fantastic work. :D
