    close up of face, there might not be enough contrast on her face. maybe my screens too bright, let me know.

    And "hiding inconsistency" sounds awful. I'm pretty sure it's gonna shine through whatever you do. Poor base = poor results.

    And why keep the colour scheme of the photo? It's flat and lacks any kind of contrast. It's an artist's interpretations, you can colour this any way you want!
    i prefer your shoulder.

    Why back from the blue colours? I liked it.
    Well I must say for me this is one of these "uhh nice chick I need portrait" pictures, because I have seen SO MANY OF THEM. So many.

    As said earlier before, I think if you make the picture clearly different than the photo, it would actually express something? What about getting references and draw her body, in a dancing pose?

    (I can't do a paintover, and I am aware that putting it the way I ddid wouldn't work, but just to make my point: )

    I dont know, i just missed her skin.
    changing the colors, for this picture. it just made her feel so fake to me. like a fairy. i like this much better.
    but im still fiddling with it. ahah. ill probably change the colors another fifty times.
    thats a good idea though! i might extend the picture more to show her body. and then i can finally feel okay about that arm.
    ahahha.
    maybe mermaid. *o*

    Hey spiritvanished. I don't know if you're still working on this or not, but from my observations in this thread, the changes you've made seem to be masking the true issues in this piece. The main problems I see are in the figure--the most glaring to me are in her shoulder and neck region. The connection between her clavicle and shoulder seem slightly off. Also, you may want to research the major muscle in the neck--the sternomastoid(look it up). Lastly, researching the trapezius muscle could help you get a better grip on drawing her shoulders.

    It looks like you're reluctant to scrap your work so far--I'm not saying that you should. But redrawing the concept and getting things right in the preliminary drawing stages may pay off later.

    Hello amara!
    I wish I had read this a few hours earlier.
    ahaha.
    i essentially scrapped my last ref, and looked for a whole new one.
    drew over the body, and merged the two .

    i got too attached to some things in the image. :/ but im sucking it up and being a woman. aha.

    thank you for the crits!
    im doing more research for the shoulder/collarbone, but im not well versed in anatomy, and am having trouble finding a picture from a similar angle.
    but im still looking!
