Finally!!! This is some great nude right there!!! Beautiful design, I love the use of earthly colours combined with cool texture! It gives a warm feeling. Her expression is really strong and thought-provoking. There is some kind of sadness behind the golden 'mask'.

Okay! For starters, I'm a big fan of Klimt's gold phase, so I suppose that biases me a bit, but anyways, this is really, really good. Overall, this piece, and particularly the woman, is fantastically graceful, you made really good decisions regarding your lines. I love the texture of the woman's skin, the subtle shine, not like oiled skin or plastic, but regular skin, the very slight hint of roughness gives a real vitality to it. I also like the muscle definition in her thigh, combined with the texture of her skin and the bold lines you used, she really radiates strength. That strength paired with her placid expression is particularly interesting, I can't quite decide whether she is in total control, or is actually afraid of her own physical strength. I also like the simple and elegant way you drew her breasts, the bold lines on the outside edges served you well there, and just in general you were really on top of your game with the colors. In addition, the value changes you used to give her weight and dimension are really effective. (Almost done gushing, bear with me) and I love love LOOOOOVE her eyes! They're so striking! My main recommendation is to look at the point where the cloth goes under her arm, it seems like you MIGHT want to narrow the pinch of the cloth, to allow room for her upper ribcage, but I'm really not sure. You happy with this one? Because I would be!

Thanks for kind words.
Like I mentioned, I chose to 'copy' Klimt because I had an artistic block and I used his works as inspiration. So I hadn't much expectations :)
Someone told me that if I hadn't detailed the face would have been even better.
I'm still searching for a style that is only mine and easily recognizable. Anyway, glad like it. :)
