this nude is fresh off the easel. it's 16x16 mixed media on canvas, the italian girl series. she doesn't have a name yet so i'm going to wait until she tells me, rather than forcing one. do any of you have any impressions about her personality?

you're breakin my heart;
you're shakin my confidence daily.
(Simon & Garfunkle)

She's demure and brash, stubborn and yielding, guileless and mysterious. A golden contradiction.

LOVE that red background.

liking this one
color pose movement mood
it seems you are really finding a 'voice' with the colors, brushstrokes
she seems playful seductive
smiling soft confident laughing
shes definitely whispering
i'd like to listen for a while

yay a jolie nude :D
ooh this is nice. as always, the background is fabulous.
the blue streaks for shading are just right, great on the face and torso.
i like how the motion of the strokes changes for the breasts, but something about the direction of the breasts is possibly a little questionable. the contradiction of motion between her bod and breasts is cool, but something about the chest is bothering me a bit. maybe the black outline near the center of the chest is too long? or goes too far towards that shoulder? i am not sure, but it's not a big enough problem to warrant change :)
anyway, lovely. i am excited to see what you name her (or she names herself? :D))

She's fiesty and brave. Love that red and the strokes of her skin, especially her breasts. That background is hot. Just one thing: I wish she had your raven blue hair to match those shadows on her.

The red is luscious danger,her golden body so impervious too, but her thoughts are on the huge shadow being caste upon her from within the flames...
