The hunger games

this reminds me of the hunger games (Susan Collins) Catnis the girl who whas on fire

i hate being the ass in the review list!

Well, as I've announced before, i am a professional art critic as well as the son of two profoundly known artists, so, keep that in mind while you read this:
This work is truly spectacular, the colors, bright but shaded, energetic but somehow calming, you really get a feel of this, it's very, emotional but distant. I think that the red/orange is a bit disproportional and that if she was in the center, you wouldn't have that problem, but anyways, the coloring is flawless (except for the disproportion of the orange/red's of course), how the yellow reflects on the hair is amazingly well done. Here is where i took off a star though (from the score), her face, is, like I've said in your beautiful galactic painting, the face needed to be absolutely perfect, and, i'm sorry, it just isn't, and normally i would let that slip, but, seeing you talent and seeing that the rest of the painting is flawless, i just had to, because, well, you can't half fix a Lamborghini Mercielago LP640's turbo, you can't 12 cashews like it says on the box (dietary facts), you can't half split an atom in half, know what i mean? Here is my verdict, This painting is truly amazing, it reminds me of something, and someone extremely close to me, and, i love it, the colors, the obstruct flow of, well, energy, the women's body, her curves, the sway in her trench coat, the slight tease due to the fact that she has no under garment. 9 stars/10 stars

Thanks again for the detailed review Gario. Yeah, this is an older piece that could use a lot of improvement. I feel like I have become a lot better since painting it (and I still need to become a lot better.) It's cool you like it as well as you do.


dude I love your art wanna be my teacher?

Very good

I like the way her trenchcoat kind of blows in the wind. The fiery backround gives it a dream-sequence kind of feel, but one of those dreams where you think you are actually awake. You really are an exceptional artist.
