Not crazy about the girl's face. I ran into some problems, even had to repaint her entire face because it was just getting too crazy with all the different colors I wanted to do... or should of been there but I couldn't find which ones to incorporate under the circumstances of the lighting or how to blend them. ANYWAY, decided to make it a bit bright and more of an impact rather than soft and gentle.

Either way, hope someone will see the passion I see behind this picture.

Wow

This is an amazing drawing/painting! I really like what you did with the light and the colours! Only one thing to improve on; the ear looks a little "speed- painted" if you know what I meanâEU¦ Except from that, great piece of art!

@shinobi-hunter smoke is blue

smoke can be many colors depending on what is burning... i think the blue is alright. Maybe the stripe on the right side (her left) doe slat too quickly. I think the proportions are stylized and look good as they are, however if they are not then know that they are not realistic.

Work on faces.

I can tell you're a little rough at 3/4 views, since the left side of the stripes is pointing too far down to be symmetrical with the right when viewed head on. But I'm glad you recognized that yourself.

I'm not sure why the color scheme changed from red to blue hues from left to right. I think it would be better if you kept the fiery warmth from the left side consistent for the entire drawing. Smoke is not blue.

Look at some more crying faces. I think you could do much more with the eyebrows and eyes.

Decent effort.

Zigan responds:

Heh. I'm usually not that bad at faces, even at that angle. I think I was just having a rough night. Also about the color, the blue is a style from my color balance scheme and also because it is dark behind her and I wanted to add some sort of color. The next default colors that are next to darkness is blue and purple since it appeals to the eye better.

i love the atmosphere this conveyz...

zigan, i like your work a lot. i think its really good. the face for this piece could have been better, i agree but overall its very well done. however i wish you would branch out a bit from the usual females faces and such and do something more. i would really like to see something more. just a thought!
