MY COMMENTS:
this is another of my 'incompleteness series', I took a lot of the advice from my last painting posted and applied it here. ie: the heightened level of realism in the face, toning down the cellophane's effect.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
all critiques and comments happily received.

btw: milt has a thread on how to do eyes that dj started, I used his suggestions for the eyes on this ... wonderful results! I'll find the thread and post a link for others to see.

a striking figure
with milt's eyes.
ha.
knowing <b>how</b> to do eyes may be a silly proposition.

I particularly love this one!
the colors
the way you put them in
her positioning on the "page"
the look even of her eyes
affected by the spin...

Wonderful!

Powerful,....with a touch of magic

The cellophane effect works particularly well here.It feels as if she's moving through a veil ,...or a dazzling web.
I also get the impression of a strong,.....determined woman being drawn toward? Nice Job.......;)

This is so cool Jnett! I love how you've done this. Carrying the greens and cellophane effect throughout.

And the eyes.....beautiful! The hair, giving the motion, wonderful.

Patting you on the back and giving you all my brushes, paints so you can make more...well almost all of them! ;)

Warmth,
ReNae

Beautiful placement and movement. Nice eyes too. But I've always liked your eyes......

The background merging and moving with the figure create an electric atmosphere. The face rings completely true and since eyes are the doorway to the soul, you can sense that this is a very SOULFUL person.

Well Done!:clap:

Almost speechless!

I LOVE the way you used the background texture/colour for the shadows on the girl. Wonderful.

YES! beautiful work! The only thing that is bothering me is her neck area. Is that a turtle neck type of top? I love the look in her eyes.
