Glitter Veins

Author Comments

Some people are born with glitter in their veins. This is one of them. :D

Acrylic on printer paper. I'm trying out painting, this being of my better ones so far.


The head in this piece is mostly fantastic; it looks very natural. The hair is pretty believable too, but I feel that the hand in this picture is excessively awkward. It appears deformed, and the fingers are bent in strange ways. Also, the wrist is thicker than the base of the arm.

However, the face is so solid that I didn't even notice the hand's problems at first. A nice piece all things considered.

Kaninchen10 responds:

The wrist especially, I am dissatisfied with. The smaller width continuing down the arm isn't noticable at first though I only realized this after I was done that it was disproportional. In the referrence photo, her fingers do bend as such, so either it could be that I had the degree of the joints off slightly or your point of view was off when examining them. Even with said mistakes, I still like this one. I don't have many watercolour paintings, and even though this isn't either I like it as a reference.

Thank you for commenting, thoughts are much appreciated. ^^
