Good work, but there are some slight issues with the anatomy.Feedback:Her face is not angled enough with the head position - which makes it look dis-proportionate. Her left shoulder (viewer's right side) is not in line with the other shoulder. it is a bit too high (look at the arm pits and where they fall with relation to the breasts). The hips don't seem wide enough, even with the angle at which you positioned them.I recommend playing around with the proportions and placement of body, eyes, head, mouth, arms, etc. before you do any of the fine detailed shading you do. If the position/proportioning is off at all, all the fine shading techniques can't save it.Keep up the great work!
Good work on your criticisms but there are some slight issues with the accuracy.I have to agree with the face, that area did give me fits as I worked to duplicate her from the photo I used (Which cannot be shown here in its entirety because this is a PG-13 website)As far as "playing around with the proportions and placement of body, eyes, head, mouth, arms, etc." If you were an artist you would know that is done throughout the process as this is a 3-4 hour drawing. I adjusted this piece many times, one of the reasons artists use quality paper like Strathmore Bristol.Although I aim for accuracy when doing portrait or still life work, it is eventually subjective to the viewer, so I would suggest in the future to state that claim when giving critiques to artists who have given years of their lives to honing their craft, instead of criticizing anonymously so we are forced to assume your credibility.I am not apposed to critique but I would suggest going to an art forum where artist openly invite such reviews of their life's pursuits. But, this is an art blog where I do business, share experiences show the progress in my work with colleagues, friends and family.If your judgment of a situation or of a person's work or ideas is off at all, all the fine evaluation techniques in the world can't save it.Thank you for visiting my web page.Dennis M.
