Trying my hand at canvas painting. It's a nice change from using a tablet in photoshop, which I just can't seem to get a good grasp of.

- It' been pointed out the proportioning is unsatisfactory. I may soon fix that. The main issue is that her lower arm is not placed in front of her body properly as would be correct with us viewing her from the side (as we are supposed to) and not from the front (as it halfway appears) which throws everything off.

Disjointedness

This picture has the "scope" problem that all my illustrations have ever had. If you look at a small box, everything is always in perfect proportion, but if you zoom out and examine the picture as whole, there are proportion problems. The head seems too big and pushed too far to the right, even though the face is *incredibly* lifelike. The two shoulders seem to be at different heights, but I'm a big fan of how you shaded them. Finally, the hand looks excellently detailed but it's much too big compared to the rest of the body (even the head). Now, it almost looks like this disjointedness is deliberate, and if so I say "Woot!" Otherwise, the picture looks like an agglomerate of smaller, well-proportioned pieces that are poorly combined into a single scale.

**** Looked over and over, and even used my mirror to hit the same pose to see what's going on, and it finally hit me. Because I added that lacy frill I accidentally moved her nearer arm too far from her body, so it is disjointed from everything else;being positioned as if we are seeing her from the front rather than from the side, which puts everything positioned in accordance to a view from the side way out of balance. This might actually be something I can fix after I buy more paint. I still hold from all of my references that her hand is the right size, though I think the outer edge of her wrist and arm there need re-angled on closer inspection.
