Acrylic 10 x 12. Did this very quickly. Comments greatly appreciated, as always. Thanks.

I like the expression, the skin, the mouth, the colors. What really strike me were the eyebrows, maybe too dark, or too long. They need some variation with light and the left one is too pointed. The right shoulder looks like it starts too low compared to the left one. The left eye shadow is different than the right one.
Hope it helps.

I noticed that too about the shoulders. I had a problem with the left one. Maybe a little thinner neck? Idea. If you are not sure what to change, trace the painting with some transparent paper or plastic and then try different mods to see what looks good.

I really like the contrast of the detail on the hair pin and then the more painterly quality on the rest. Something about her ear seems jarring to me. The color of it matches the other skin tones, but the shadow of her jaw keeps the ear from being anchored to the rest of her. I really like her gaze. Nice piece

It's fine. It's an image, not an anatomy study.
