ahhhh the thoughts behind that look....
if one could only read minds.

everytime I walk past her I will wonder
what does that look really mean?
is she still mad
because of what I said?
is she getting mad because of what I forgot to say?

Calm now that that storm has passed...
Or thinking about how to face the coming storm?

Does she laugh deep inside at the drama?
And know it is all below and behind her?

Mona Lisa has nothing on her
nothing at all

loving this

I like the colors and the transitions between them.
I also find it rather bold.

But I can not determine the a man it is or a woman.
Judging by the hair, pose, lips it must be a woman. But then here is strongly violated proportions.
Eyes, forehead, hair - a female, the lower part of the face - men. These are two different persons in one. This causes rejection.
The face is too large relative to the rest of the skull.

It seems that you are drawing from the imagination, not a real person. Therefore, a person has no gender.
Also draws attention to itself a hand. Very large and very unfinished.

On one side I like the general message, colors, courage.
On the other side, in my opinion, there are significant errors, imbalances.

I myself have drawn a lot of people with no certain face gender, before realized how to draw female face. Just here I see my own mistakes.
I miss the elegance and subtlety of detail.
In my opinion women should be drawn so that it was impossible to look away.

In this work there are both attractive and repulsive, unfinished elements creates an internal discomfort.

PS I do not want to offend you by my criticism.
I just see the moments that could be improved. In my opinion.
