She is beautifully done. I especially like how you treated the hair.

I like the white lines throughout--creates a "batik" look. Lovely colors! :)

Erie is the feeling that casts its shadow on my mind first Cristy. Very mystic blues and purples and you have amplified that vibe with the white outlines. Are they scratched or painted?

I don't know how I would feel if her eyes were open, it might depend on the direction of her stare or gaze.

Nice series...

I had to look up Batik lol thank you!

Dave- The white lines are white ink. I found some great archival pens that cover any color with pure white without having to go over it several times. I love them! I went through two pens on this piece even though it only took one pass to put down the white... if her eyes were open I think it would look more like a horror piece. Like she was being strangled by something. Most of my stuff looks a little dark (emotionally dark, not colors), even though I try and make it bubbly. I am trying to get away from the dark elements a bit and get them to be a little more balanced.

Jim - Thank you!
