Ok... Lots going on here... This is a personification of traditional and digital art. Both mediums were blended together into one character. I did this to show the connection between the two. The reason that the eye on the digital side of the character is opened is to represent the new world of possibilities that was unlocked when the medium (Digital art) was created. Look closely at the opened eye. You can see the reflection of the traditional side of the character in it, but, the traditional side of the character's eye is now open! Look even further, and you can see that in the newly opened eye, is the reflection of the digital side of the character! Look even further and, well, you won't see much but pixels... But you get the idea... This is my way of showing a possible future where digital art will be regarded as "traditional art" because of a new medium that would have taken its place.

So the first thing that I really notice is that the separation is right down the middle of the body, but not in the face. This would have been alright, but it doesn't appear that her face is turned slightly to the side, in which it would need to be for this to be done properly. I guess one could say that where she separates changes somewhere out of view underneath the chin, but why? It seems to me like the anatomy is just off a bit there.

My favorite part of this submission is the texture that you used on the traditional side. The spots/freckles on her skin were a great feature and I love the blending you did on her hair. On the other side I love the detail that you put into her hair as well.

It wasn't until this point in my review that I even really noticed the background. The main focus of this submission was on the girl dead center, but I really appreciate the time that you took to make the different backgrounds on either side. You did such a good job on focusing on the girl that the background seemed to just be color at first.

Hey, thanks for the pointers on anatomy, this is one of my older pieces and looking back, I can agree with you. Recently I've been working more on the shading of faces, check out my submission "Dark Link" to see what I've learned. Let me know if you think it's any better...

Thanks for your feedback!
