This is oils, 12 x 14 inches. Some of the drawing around the eyes needs to be refined. Any thing else? Thanks in advance...

i'd like to better understand your end goal before i comment, for example, what mood are you going for?

It's a good painting. I know you are calling it Green Eyes but I feel the eyes would have more of an impact if the Iris's of the eye were a more of a solid darker color than the green surrounding the eye. Perhaps a darker green. If it were mine I would put some purple in the Iris's of the eyes. But I'm still fairly new to painting so keep that in mind before taking any advice from me.

It's done from a b+w photo and she looks very serious in it. Very intense and I just went with that. I have already corrected the eyes and the expression is more even now. I was certainly going for a serious mood. Will post new version tomorrow. Thanks for your comments.

ok, well, she is kind of creepy cool and i like creepy cool, especially with halloween looming.
i would be tempted to soften/blend the fairly harsh line under her chin as it stands out a bit too much for me.
i'd also be tempted, strongly, to make the whites of her eyes more white/less green, but that's pretty subjective in a stylized piece such as this.
