    Girl from the Balkans

    A folk costume from the Balkans has inspired me for this work. I find it very
    interesting, beautiful and mystical at the same time. For some parts I have
    used a photography as reference to present the costume as authentic
    as possible. Hope you like it.

    What is the medium? If it is digital (My guess), you need some hard edges, it's feels too airbrushed.

    If it's traditional, it may just be the photograph, but you still should assess some edges.

    I do like the costume though. I am always at the library getting fashion, folk, traditional, cultural, kinds of books and drawing and painting the costumes and characters. That way when I want to create out of my head, I have lots to draw from. Good attention to detail.

    There's a small anatomical issue with her right wrist. It looks like it's bending too far back away from the actual writs joint. Something's just not right about it.

    Did you use an actual Balkan model? Costume's gorgeous.

    You'll have to rework the arm, wich is too thin. Perhaps it would't hurt, if you also had slightly more saturation in some parts of the skin-tones of the arms and hands.
