This is awesome..! Even though you were just experimenting, it looks amazing as if you've done this a lot. Have you been having previous experiments before this? I really like how soft the art looks. Nothing it too edgy because most looks blurred. Her hair is what I like, same with her lips and eyes.
The hair is just simply done with a little strokes of different color and shadowing, but it still looks amazing. It fits even though it sometimes it doesn't. The eyes catch my eye because they look so real yet not real, I like that. It is a real painting if you get what I mean. Her lips catch my attention as well because it 'pops' out. It doesn't look flat at all.
Wow! Thanks so much for the comment! It means so much to me! I haven't done any experiments like this before. I like the results so I plan to take it a bit further in future paintings relatively soon. Thanks again!
She's so gorgeous, and I love the colors! It's amazing how the colors literally brought it to life. (Also, she reminds me of Maura Isles from Tess Gerritsen's books, she describes her character exactly like this - dark hair with a Cleopatra-like haircut, green eyes, and almost always holding a very serious expression. )
