You captured a heshe well. Move the head over to the left and then have the hair bleed off the page.

That is the only thing that will help him/her.

I like the strong look- Beautiful eyes! The eye/nose area almost cat like. I like the hand, ends a little abruptly- love the nail! Maybe a little more purple or green in the shadow under her finger- at least a little more blending there, and on the arm IMHO. Very nice!

maybe a dark angel
but, she does have a tender side too...

love the perspective on the hand

(if it were mine, I would crop the bottom to the visual part of the hand...no biggie, though)

nice work!

a little ghosty, yes, use some more vibrant skin colors, loved the eyes, they seem to penetrate, great on the red background. I too like to do pastels on colored pastel papers. Loved it, keep it up:clap:

Appreciate your time and comments.
Still debating adding more flesh tones. The original doesn't call for it still this girl has a spirit about her that wants to be captured.
I do believe I will blend more below the hand and add more to the hand it's self.
It is so nice having WC members teaching me again, Thanks!!!

have a great thanksgiving

not sure how you'd fix it at this point, but the hand seems a bit large and somewhat masculine.

...otherwise a very nice work....
