How am I to write a critique on this piece of work. I sit here staring at this image. Words like, captivating, beautiful, penetrating, amazing, seem shallow in meaning. Pardon me I don't mean to offend, but how a woman so young has such a developed eye, well it blows my mind. This is most defiantly one your best pieces of work. The whole image draws me to your eye and BAM it jumps out at the viewer. I love it. Did you have this image in your mind from the start? Did it evolve from a series of images? so many questions.
I'm forcing myself to aim for a balanced critique, but this image leaves very little to find any true fault. I have noticed that I find it difficult at times to link a title with the work of many artists. The lines streaming from the fingers seems a little to subtle. Would darkening them strengthen the connection to the title, or distract from the image? I would like to hear from other deviants out there what they think.
To the point I say... BRAVO!!! A fantastic piece of Art!
This peace is stunning and frightening at the same time as it lets me imagine all kind of freaky backgrounds this made up character could have if it was real - or at least real in some story.
I like to look at this peace from further point of view as looking closer it reveals few little details I most definitely would have liked not to see - cracks, hair, colours... but in general it really leaves a cool swipe of emotions and thoughts running through my mind.
Unfortunately this idea isn't anything quite original any more as it is really easy to find similar works, however this one managed to grab my attention. I think the main reason is because of it's colouring bringing together not only black, white and reds but also pinning a little bit of blues, which somehow made this picture to become more than something I have seen plenty of already.
That eye is totally stunning just barely allowing me to look past it at anything else there is. And blue-ish gloves at both sides just adds the spark to it!
I don't know, weather it would look better or not, but I would have liked to see at least two or even three shades of red being used, but maybe it is better this way as this one seems so alive and juicy that one could only dream of having or licking something so amazing.
