Amazing job with the make up. The gradients are great and feels great going into the rest of the skin tone. The black eye make up is wonderful as well, adding a for sure angle of the nose. The hair is also great making it feel like water was a nice touch. The only thing I do not like is that the hair dose not completely tie in with the rest of the work. If the hair could have been integrated more, like fading into the background or something along those lines and think it would be complete. That is the only thing I see that could have been done better. In all I give this a 8.5 out of 10.
This is, hands down, a gorgeous work of art here. I enjoy that the more you look at it, the more you see, as in, at a glance you see this pretty girl, and then you see a swan and some flowers, and then a second swan. The color choices are wonderful, you obviously have a handle on color schemes and balance. I love the amount of detail that was put into it, like the lace and the freckles on the bridge of her nose. It is a simple and complex piece all at once, and that makes it fun to look at, my only complaint is that it is not big enough to set as my wall paper.
You must be really busy! I hope that you're really happy with the job that you have now (I discovered you through the interview you had with a magazine), and I'd just like to say that you always do such an amazing job!
