First one, I am not sure if I am done with, it's watercolor and ink on 20" x 30" arches art board. The eyes are bothering me, they just pop out because they are so white... I wanted them to pop out, but I am thinking this is just too much as is. I might tone that down based on input.

Second one, Popothic. 16" x 20" watercolor and ink on arches art board. I was going for a gothic pop art abstract, and I think it works.

The first one is first rate! I think the eyes are perfect as they are; haunting eyes peering out of an abstract expressionist surrounding. Perfect.

The face in the second piece reminds me of Angelina Jolie.

The second one is just brilliant. well-played.

Bee- Thank you!!! That is so flattering, because I love your work so much!

JimWhalen: Thank you. I will keep the eyes then. The face on the second was modeled after... a Monster High doll lol I wanted to make faces with the bizarre proportions so I bought one of the dolls to use as a reference. Yes... a grown woman buying dolls... it's kind of embarrassing.

Bird and Dave: Thank you :) :)

These are both very intriguing I particularly like the graphical feel of the second one. Nice work!

I also love the eyes in the first one, I think you need to keep them - even if all the rest were subtracted. I love the composition, the textures, the subtle greys. The second one is very different, of course, and I like the tension you created with the dripping technique, it gives me a feeling of suspension
