Hi,
This is in archival pen on paper and is roughly 7.5x4."
All critiquing is welcome.

A true Nina!! :) Love those red highlights in her hair pulling in the background. And those purple tips are wonderful!!! Nice twist (no pun intended ;) ).

One thing: the top portion of the body is a different color than the bottom portion - also, the top is not crosshatch shadowed (except for the barely sides) as the bottom is. Is this intentional? I don't believe I've seen you do this before.

Hi Tam~
Both top and bottom are the exact same color - which is the white of the paper. :) It's an illusion that they are different colors.

The only reason I cross-hatched the bottom, is because of a huge mistake I made in the rendition of the lower part of the body; I was trying to correct the mistake I made by doing the cross-hatching of the bottom part of the body. It's a long tedious story, for me as well as you. LOL

This is clearly not one of my better nudes.

I am truly glad that you mentioned your observation!!! :D

Don't see the difference in color on this monitor but can't look again while writing this arrgh!
Disagree with the artist concerning the result. You have chosen to draw the arms in a similar style just a few times before that I remember but for some reason that pose just knocks me out.

I hadn't noticed the cross hatch on the bottom til Tam mentioned it.
Funny you think it's not one of your better ones. My initial impression was she was as great as the others. :)
And congratulations on the high sale of your nude. Way to go :D

I think the crosshatch helped in emphasizing the buttocks! I like the colors--they're very minimal and pleasing to the eyes :D

It's amazing how many things in nature have beautiful swirls and squiggles! :)

Nina, I love these latest "rear view" nudes that you've been doing. They're wonderful and this one is no exception. :)
