Hey, I like your use of colouring, but the eye and whole facial postition looks a bit offish, as well as the shoulder blade, which is huge! You did the hair well, although my only adive would be to see the hair as a 'whole' object, not as indiidual strands, and employ shadow as such. Nice work though, and keep trying!

Very nice, although Andromeda is looking rather thin...

what's the giant line running down her back? awkward.

This just scares me. I love the drawing, but our French Teacher looks like that. The face, it resembles her so much. She got fired after admitting to a teacher that she uses 'crack' and just looking at the picture reminds me of her. [This happened a week ago] It's the face. How the lips are. She always used to purse her lips like that. The hairstyles the same. The face, too, only not the eyes. Her eyes was hard to see as she always had hair blocking her face once in a while. [Turns out she made us six lessons behind and our exam comes up in two weeks!]

I love it, still.

I must go study.

I very rarely stop to "critic" art but I'm avoiding hw, so I'm going to stall as much as possible. I also greatly admire this picture and I think with some helpful, friendly advice, it could be even more stunning.

You show a great amount of natural, raw talent. But your bordering inbetween abstract and realistic. You should definitly attempt some abstract or surreal painting, but I think you were aiming for a realistic painting so I'm going to give you some advice.

NOTE: I do not meant to offend you, I really am trying to help, I think you have a lot of talent!

You should work on your proportions....

Her arms are too skinny, dare is say, seemingly "anorexic." Maybe you should add some "meat." But they are perfect shape.

Although it is common for women to not have an hourglass figure, you may have overexaggerated the "straight lines" so try to indent at the waist and decrease the *ahem*...buttox...size.

Also, the shoulder blade is too long. I agree wit "Not Alice", it may not entirely be necessary to draw it at all. But if you would like to keep it, just decrease the size and don't make the lines so dark. The shoulderblade is not a prominent body part. Try to shade it so it "melts" into the back.

These are all easy mistakes to make though seeing as how from the perspective she is being drawn, it is a difficult position to capture. I love her face, her hair and stance. The dress is gorgeous.

I hope I have helped you and keep up the good work!

I LOVE the coy smile, like she knows something and she's not gonna tell.

It's very nice in a cruel beauty way.

I think that the shoulder blade needs help, and her waist is a little big, but otherwise bravo! This is perfect, as it shows Andromeda in a good light. I like this

I am not an art expert, but that shoulder blade needs help, actually just leave it out, her back doesn't need it. Her waist also looks too fat for as thin as her arms are. I like her face though and you can draw blond hair really well, the shadings awesome.

She really looks like someone who could be a sister to Narcissa, but she has a kindness and approachability to her that Narcissa lacks. I especially like the shading and tones in her hair. :)

Wow! I think this is your loveliest yet! And I like this style you have of the impressionistic backdrops. You're really quickly mastering that tablet, aren't you?

She looks a bit like Miranda Otto playing Eowyn, dressed differently of course. :D A very nice drawing!
