I thought I loved the green one out of the four, but no this is my favorite. I just find that the colour blue emphasises more colour! It really does get the message across of the female's feelings at this moment in time.
Like always, the facial tone is phenomenal, with the slight hint of red every now and then to show that the woman is still there, and that blood still runs through her veins. You never seem to get the lips wrong, they're always beautiful. The hair in this piece as well really stands out for me because of how fluid it seems to be, which completely contrasts to the rigid structure of the hexagons lined across her shoulder.
But of course, who could mistake the best part; the small dart frog. My favorite part. So subtle, yet really stands out as well. The animal itself has been drawn to perfection and I love the detail of tonal shading and light balance. Really love this piece, you should be proud! I'll be excited to see what you accomplish in 2013!
Well Done.

Wow now I should probably write something .... I don't know if what I do is called critical because I admire you extremely much. I've seen all the works on deviantart / facebook and is known that these works  stunning. This makes me proud that there are people like you on the same plane with us.
Every day at home I practice, and then in one day (probably never) to do something even the quarter, compared to how you do or others... like Conrad Roset,Greno Minjae Lee ... and others.
What I mean is, that i can't  grow enough to do like you ... but to be loved and known by the people who surrounding me like how I love and praise you (by you I mean the real artists ). I'm sorry that I didn't left a message about you'r work ... but what's the point of commenting on something that is simply / perfect "ART".

I like the hexagons. I've used them in a piece I did and I like what they do to a work.

The choice of colors is beautiful and your style is as beautiful as ever, although I find this picture lacks a bit of depth. It feels quite flat and, although the hexagons are a nice addition, they reinforce this feeling, I think.
In contrast, the deep shading on the frog really creates a feeling of form and this difference in treatments creates a conflict (for me at least) as to what is really the subject of your painting.

Probably a harder work to read than your previous ones, but still beautifull! :)

I am a huge fan of your work! You are so inspiring being so young and talented although I know it was only achieved through all the hard work you put into your pieces. I love the colors and subtle washout colors. I like how you put two very different things together but they still work with the composition placement and the color scheme! You are truely talented! I love it!

Though I do love the colors, I think that you have two different perspectives going on in this piece. Or if that's not it, then you need to widen the shoulders to make her head look smaller and then, maybe, the perspective can be fixed. And maybe darken in the shadows some more. *nods*

I'm a huge fan of your but in my opinion this piece does not have the same essence as your other pieces, I don't know if its the face and the expression... Love the technique though and the frog and those patterns are amazing :)

This is the frist piece of your work that I don't like it. I mean, it's creat and I absolutely love blue and your style, but... I feel it lacks of something. Something yours.

You are a very skillful and talented artist and I love most of your works. This picture however doesn't look as good as the others. In general the proportions seem rather off. Compared to the size of her head her shoulders are WAY too small. Also, her eye seems to be positioned too high and the ear too low. Her forehead is odd-looking too. And I'm having a really hard time figuring out in what perspective her head is supposed to be.

What I like about this picture her red eye and the toad. They look very good with their deep colours!

Absolutely beautiful, deep with a touch of mystique. Your work is always done with such a vivid and expressive style. I am pleased by every piece, even those that seem a bit unnerving, only because they make one thing and reflect on the subjects just so much more.

I think in this one her eyes has less impact than your other paintings, but I'm not underestimating your work, I really liked that frog and the pattern.
