awesome job here. you definitely got the hand to head proportions right on this one. i think the overall composition is great. i like that its centered but also asymmetrical. the yellow eyes make a really nice focal point for the piece. i love the way you always give your portraits a washed out skin tone, almost as if they are sick or ghostly. the subtle touches of color in the hair are a nice touch, and the hands are very well rendered. overall i think this piece is great eye candy and very well made. some constructive criticism: maybe add a little more touches of highlights with the gel pen to the hair, i feel as if its a little to washed out looking for such a detailed face.

Good work, Agnes. I love the expression within this painting. Though I wonder if the face of the boy is too pale. On the other hand it excells the washing colors more.
If you really have to have a bit of critics: I wonder about the body of the man, woman behind the boy. It runs in an odd direction if you ask me.
To my point of view the person stands crooked right behind the boy, but than I miss the rest of the body on the side of the boy.
If that person stands straight behind the boy, I suspect the body line to run more straight down, or more bowed (since his chest).
But besides the fact that I spend a lot of words on that, it does not bother me and does not make the painting less great.

Although I am not a painter, I think that the subaqueous qualities of the purity of line makes resonant the distinctive formal juxtapositions.

Sorry for suddenly commenting like this but I thought it was a girl with a relaxed t-shirt. I like big t-shirts better than the ones that sit tightly and I did that as a kid too so I assumed that. Also because of the hair.

I like this picture very much. The look on the face gives many thoughts and the way they are standing too. I like that not everything is painted finished too. Because it makes the expression clearer. Focus in the right places.

Really cool. I oil paint, but I think watercolor is so fascinating.

Wow this one really tears your heart out. Makes me think of a family member I lost recently. I really enjoy the subtle use of color and the focus on the girls eyes.

Bonjour, cette image m'a inspiré un poème qui a peut-être aucun rapport mais voilà je tenais à le dire :)

Why is she/he so sad?
jonathanjturrell Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2014
This would make an amazing book cover.  Maybe a psychological thriller involving a girl some believe to be possessed?  Not sure.  Great artwork though!

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

The emotion in the girl's eyes is so realistic... it's as though she's actually staring at me through the computer screen...

 I love this piece of work.  Reminds me of my Thia character in my "More Than Angels" books--an abused girl who grows up to become an FBI agent.  Great job on drawing out a child's inner pain!!

Is it protection and comfort from the scary things, or is it manipulation and covetousness with the child's eyes pleading for help... hmmmm

 :) awesome work.

waterhealing Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I feel that the little girl is getting stronger. And someday, the hands which are protecting her will fade away but she will surround herself with her own hands. She will reach the point where she would be able to find her shelter,  sometimes,  within herself, within the times when she had feared certain things, but they couldn't end her life. this how I see it. Or I can say this is how I  would, at some point,  relate it to myself. This piece is absolutely breathtaking.  :heart:
