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

Thank You

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!!!

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....
