well drawn, beautiful young woman. One ( the uninitiated?) wonders why the symbols of Satan and death.

My sentiments exactly, Why....? Otherwise, super job...... I think I would lose the lip piercing and it would look great, just my opinion....

This is really interesting, albeit unusual subject matter. I think you did a good job, though if it were me, I would add a little shading around the nose and lip piercings (especially the bottom ball on the lip), to lessen the floating effect they have taken on.

Being a formerly pierced person, I don't find them distracting but I can see how others may be put off by them. I think, depending on your desired audience, they may prevent people from seeing the whole drawing though.

Your drawing skills are self-evident. It's sometimes a good sign when subject matter evokes an uncomfortable response. I'm not sure whether I'd like this better if the symbolism were a bit more understated, but I can still appreciate the siren-like aspects.
Minor critique: the nose seems to be shoved toward the left side of her face (the viewer's right), and the stuff on her upper chest is giving me a feeling of hairiness. I don't care how many piercings she has, but the hairy chest thing is a bit unsettling.
This actually looks like the type of art you see on motorcycle gas tanks. Trust me, that's not a bad thing. There are some very talented artists doing that type of work, and if it gets the art out there for many to see, I'm all for it.

Very nice drawing, overall.

I hope I didn't come across wrong when I stated that I would lose the lip piercing, I am not turned off or don't like piercings, it just didn't look right on this particular drawing, possibly due to the shading or floating effect as mentioned... to me in this drawing it just looks "out of place" so to speak... Sorry if I may have offended anyone with my previous post.... I like tattoos and piercings...

Very pretty work. This would be a great pen and ink. I like the lip piercing. The clean lines are refreshing. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your commentaries!

She was apprentice of drawing, she was coming to my house every Wednesday, because she wanted to learn to draw...

I have very much fondness, because she is a very sweet girl ... though she wants to seem to be very aggressive, because of she wanted a tattoo of a cranium with wings.

I wants that this drawing shows her personality, her youth, her innocence, her beauty ... Although of everything on what she puts above to look like another person.

My drawing its not satanic, either likes to draw famous people (Bratt Pitt, Anjoline Jolie for example) ... she is one persnas real, single people sees its external appearance... I wanted to draw its glance... her eyes.

The opened door symbolizes that she left without notice, she went away without saying goodbye ... and I do not believe that she returns...

I do not believe that she sees her portrait ever...

angela: You are right... what she matters to me is what has inside of its heart.

obxbear: It if she has those earrings in his face... the others has it in her mind.

CorvusKorax: She is a symbol of young people.

There is two different kinds of artists to me. There are those who wish to please the viewer with their images and those like us who like to disturb people and make them wonder, I do not think there is anything wrong with any of those two, the only thing that's bad is when a piece makes one feel nothing. I really like it.

Thanks for its commentaries!

I make my drawings for my... I do not make it to please to others; but I am glad if these drawings please to the other people.

Thom Byrd: Thanks to visit my blog, I hope that my work it likes.

psychotron62: Thanks! you can say to me that type of artist I am. In 2002 I visited Coral Spring, reason why I have good friends there and I think that it is a wonderful place.

Juan: As always your work is just unbelievable! An artist and a pencil. WOW! The symbolism is very dramatic, you chose to display them as feelings. If you look at the masters paintings one would always find symbolism hidden almost, subliminally, in their paintings. Very impressive work Juan, I'm sorry she will never see it...........tremendo...........tj
