This is my first time painting very dark skin. C&C welcome. Acrylic 10 x 14 inches. Thanks for visiting.

I like it. The planes of the face are well defined and well blended. Perhaps the eye is a little more abstracted than the rest of the face. That said, it seems to work as an element in the picture.

No jarring shifts in value, but the whole range is present. Well done.

Beautifully done. My only critique is that her right collarbone is just a little to strongly defined. Other than that it is very well done. :clap:

I think the skin is well done. I agree with Bob about that collarbone. It looks very pronounced. Overall very good, convincing and solid.
