This picture looks amazing~ ( ゚ Д゚)It's looks like a real picture with a colour pencil filter.

I love the fabrics in this- it looks really transparent and has life practically entwined within it's cloth. However... the beads that are hanging on the edge of the material looks really stiff. As well as the beads themselves look a little unrealistic unfortunately. I suggest a little more distortion within the beads and transparency?

The eyelashes also look a little fake, in comparison to the rest of the artwork. The eyelash looks a little misshapen as well. Perhaps that may be just me?

Since this is a reference of another person's picture, I can't exactly give you a big score on originality. The technique is well done You used a lot of shape, value, colour and forms. The lines with different thick-ness looks awesome~ Gives the photo more to look at.

Overall, this picture is great. There were only small details that I saw. Nothing to be totally worried about. Just need to remember it next time you do it~!
What do you think?

è splendido, oltre che realistico...il velo sembra vero, il naso "schiacciato" dal velo, e mi piace l'angolo dell'occhio! ^^
quante ore ci hai messo?

Grazie del commento! :aww: Non saprei dire quanto c'ho messo, perché come al solito ci ho lavorato senza costanza.... anche se questa volta ho ridotto notevolmente i tempi (merito del corso di disegno). Anche i colori mi sembrano più scuri rispetto agli altri ritratti... cosa che mi hanno insegnato lì... Comprimendo le ore che ci ho lavorato, forse si può ridurre a una settimana o due...

Dipende da cosa vuoi ottenere, in certi punti deve essere forte per ottenere un effetto più "vivo"... al corso mi hanno insegnato che gli "autodidatti" tendono a fare disegni molto chiari, con poco contrasto. E' uno degli errori che sto cercando di correggere :)
Ho visto che hai fatto un'altra mostra (quella sui dolci)! Grande! :clap:

grazie per le dritte! ^^
sì, ma fare mostre non vuol dire essere un artista di successo...non capisco chi mi invidia (e ne sento di belle!). ho speso ca 3000 euro tra fotografo, muri e spedizioni e guadagnato ben poco o nulla. l'ho fatto perchè mi divertiva, ma è stressante. ciò che mi piace è insegnare. questo per me è solo un hobby. di questi tempi non bisogna farci tanto affidamento...mi riempie le giornate in attesa del lavoro, ma il lavoro è importante.

Ah, be', comunque ci hai investito tantissimo... per essere "solo un hobby"... Personalmente, se non fossi sicura che il disegno sia la mia strada (o almeno una delle strade da seguire per appagamento personale... ed economico) non credo che potrei investirci così tanto. L'unica cosa in cui ritengo necessario investire per adesso è il miglioramento, quindi corsi, corsi, corsi...
Ma come sta andando il lavoro? Stai insegnando?

costa tanto allestire una mostra.
sono i soldi che mi sono guadagnata. l'ho fatto perchè ci credevo.
ripetizioni...
