    i'm a pretty pretty portrait

    Just looking to get some final crits on this. I really appreciate all the feedback given while working on this, it's certainly grown into something much better than I had originally envisioned (and now that I write that down I realized that's a bit rare for me!).

    i love the innocence of it! something about the eyes is not symmetrical for me and the shoulders seem a bit muddy, almost like a smugged piece of scupley.

    overall it looks kinda good. but i wouldnt say that the burntool in the bakground made it any better 0___o.... and at least for me its really hard to see whats going on in the right top corner, at first glance i thought it was just a hole in the wall. but then i see its an object. an axe maybe? 0_o

    Hahah, wow. That wasn't my line of thought at all, but it works out just as well. I just wanted a twinge of creepiness. Now it seems downright sinister.

    No burning or dodging here. I tweaked the shadowing to look less burny, replaced the shadows with some less saturated and different dark colors than the background. I can not allow this piece to evoke thoughts of "lol burntool"!

    Gave the shoulders (the skin at least) a good going over. The inner details should be much more clearer now at least and skin tone variation more natural in transition.
    The eyes aren't symmetrical

    This is lovely and definately has that innocent creepiness to it. I like it
    My crit is that the hair looks a lot less defined than the rest of it. Needs a little more definition, especially at the top. Lovely work, I like the background and colour choices.

    I really think it would make the peice much stronger if you got rid of those white highlights in the blood, they compete with the portrait. you could almost just push the value of the blood down to a deep saturated red and let it be an easter egg. People will find it after the look at the tear in the fabric. I also question your compositional choices.. why did you put her dead center? If you moved her over I think it would look better.

    KenDeathwalker - That's an interesting suggestion. I didn't want the "blood" to be too similar to the wallpaper in value as I didn't want it to be read as being just part of the pattern. I think if it was pushed any further it would lose its destinction, so I hope as it is right now it's a bit more hidden, yet not completely so. My reasoning for keeping her central was that I wanted her to be very dominating of the piece ans I really don't want peoples eyes moving around the whole canvas but to mainly stay focused within her form.
