    Talking Classical angel - UPDATE **progress added**

    Hi, I'm new to this forum, so let me introduce myself: I'm a 20 year old girl from The Netherlands, and a very big fan of this art forum! I'm really amazed of the talent presented here. After wondering around for almost a year I found the courage to post some 'art' myself.

    Heres my latest work - it's made with acrylics on board - 100 x 70. Used some Da Vinci pieces for reference on the arm (must note: never painted really, this is my first 'serious' piece).

    Comments and crits please!

    Amazing technique. It has a very 'classic' feeling to it. Brilliant work for a first time, think you don't need to call your art 'art' I so feel like her right bicep is kinda of big and that there is something strange about her cheeks (their palecement is very asymetric) I'm also new (20 years also) saw your post next to mine (we posted pretty much at the same time) and decided to help cuz' this community is so tough! Didn't expect to find such a beutiful piece.. Again great work.

    Very nice picture. It really does have a classical vibe that you don't see too often these days.

    I think that Ultima-Hunter already hit on most of the critiques. I'd also suggest working on the shadows of the uplifted arm. The area around her triceps just seems rather bright to me. It also seems that there's a bit of an age difference between the face and arms. The arms are young but the face is older. Personally I like how the women is older so I'd recommend aging the hands, pretty supermodel angels are very cliche and I love how this woman has so much depth and sagacity to her.

    But of course, what you do is up to you!

    Thank you for replying!

    To Ultima-Hunter: Welcome (funny how we posted almost at the same time) and thank you for your critique. I think your right about the placement of the cheeks, I also thought there was something funny about them but didn't know what was wrong (maybe the mouth is also a bit out of place).

    To staylor: Thank you, I never looked at it that way, but you're right about the age-difference. I think I'll age the hands a bit more.
