La, this is beautiful! Such fresh bright colors! It fairly jumps off the canvas. I like the reflected yellow on her face.

I also like the reflections in her face. Nice stylized features. I do not like the background at all, it is very distracting and practically screaming at me "WARNING WARNING". You asked.
need a tie breaker vote ...

OK, I won't change my vote but I will swing it just a bit......
Put a vallance across the top of the curtains to hold the yellow from running out of the top.
now i need background ideas

Ooops sorry. They looked like drapes letting sun in a window. Do some leaves across the top to hold in the sunshine then. :)

Do you think it makes a difference?
10-02-2013, 02:55 PM
Call it "Sunshine"! Cause, that's what it's all about!
yes, yes it does make a diff!

Hmm, some cleavage maybe, just a little. And it could use a dip above the lip. The eye on the left (our left) could use the same bright light as the eye on the right. The right eye looks so real and sparkly.

Something with her right eye and I think that you need more contrast and changes of values. As is, I think that it is too flat. Nice idea but it needs some work.

She is cute, with a wonky eye
I would turn the trees into some sort of grid for flowers

I like it - you managed to capture a very cheeky / playfull pose

Nice feeling overall.
The face is a bit too anime.
The background doesn't match the face.... to me. :-)

I love her expression! So sweet! I think the colors in the background need to be greyed and cooled a bit and edges softened to harmonize with her spirit but not distract from her face. On her I would decide where the light source is that way you can add some nice highlight to the form. Then PO in some dark values as well. She is kind fo washed out from being all mid values. That eye on the left is missing a highlight sparkle. I would bring the flowers up higher because we would see some breast if they are that low. How about some touches of pink in the flowers to connect them to the pinks in her face? Ha, sorry if that was too much!
