My first thought: WOW! Great artist. And just about 3500 pageviews?! O.o

This is a great artwork, fine details everywhere in her face. Very realistic and emotional pose. The shading is great! I know that these realistic star-protraits are very hard to do. Just perfect!

What I don't like: The area around the necklace, her neck and her back: I miss the details.It's a bit sloppy.

Her hair on the left at the top (the grey area) could be more realistic.
The white strap is a bit unrealistic, that could be drawn better. And you could improve her back-hair.

All in all a great artwork!
What do you think?

Where can i find hair brush like this .. please tell me

Hi,
there was no hair brush used in this one. I painted it in the oldschool way. In about 10 layers from darker to lighter ones. Thats why this piece took me about 2 years to finish (with hundred of hours in total).

Daaaaamn!! Nice work, very much worth the time and effort. Hair really blows my mind.
One nitpick: the line of the shoulder seems a bit off, the contrast is a bit too high, maybe should be blended a bit.

JoeDieBestie Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2013
do you mean the front shoulder or the back (darker) one ?

The front one (the one that's closer to the viewer).
