"I'm here on behalf of :iconselftaughtartist: because your piece was in the group's critique requested folder."

This drawing is phenomenal!!! It looks very realistic! The eyes are my favorite part! A person's face is the hardest thing to draw and you did an excellent job! The shading and facial features are well done! I can't say anything negative about this piece. It looks exactly like the picture!!! :faint:

Hello again :) as you know I am from :iconbeaute-lamour: here to provide you with a critique you requested, as you know I will be 100% honest and all critiques are subjective but I hope this helps out for the future.

Okay first this looks fantastic! I am blown away by the naturalism and its exact resemblance to the original image. I love the attention to detail you put into this piece and I love the anatomy and drawing . From the photograph the piece looks extremely challenging because of the the hands make up half of its composition ( and you know artist with hands lol) but you pulled it off excellently, the hands are of perfect structure with the image, the eyes are not crocked and every piece is drawn well. What really makes this piece so amazing is the detail mainly the lighting and the value is amazing,the creases in the hands especially the left hand astound me it is as if you drew every crease on the subjects left hand, it matches the image exact to the last detail. The eyes are mesmerizing they really bring the whole piece together they captivate the viewer so much. The young lady in the photos eyes are so hypnotic and intense and you captured them so well I am so drawn it is difficult to look away.

I love the way the light plays off her face and the different shades just bring out the piece so much. You have done the photo and the subject justice with this piece. You texture on the skin is phenomenal, I feel as if I can reach out and touch her face through the skin that is how convincing the texture is.

The only thing for suggestion and believe me I had to analyze this for 30 mins to look for suggestions lol, but the left hand has amazing detail and texture but the one on the right where the light hits the most I notice is a lot smoother in the photograph and in this piece but in the image there is a quit a few softer texture like around the palm area which is not really noticeable in the piece, so I think if you add a little more texture very softly by the palm just for more detail sake on the hand.

There is not really much suggestions after that this piece is flawless keep up the great work :)

hope this helped and feel free to come back for more critiques :) and by the way this has been added to the groups feature gallery :)

Thank you so much for the critique, I appreciate it :) I'm glad you like the drawing. :) About the suggestion..
The right hand looks very smooth on the screen because when I was taking a image of it (my scanner isn't big enough for this drawing,so I had to take a photo with a camera) the light was hitting the right part of the drawing and that's why the upper part of the right hand looks like there's not enough shadow..:XD: but I tried to darken the photo, but then the whole drawing looks to dark :( I was so pissed of while adjusting the photo :angered: :lmao:

Oh I promise that's what I 1st assumed but I forgot to put it in, I hate when that happens cameras can never really capture all the details unless it is like a super expensive one and even then lighting can get in the way of seeing all of them.
I think if it comes out to dark and washed out,maybe this can help, try taking multiple pictures of it during different times of the day so when you upload it you may have a better chance of capturing all the detail and not editing so much, which I understand what you mean can be a big issue.

You did a fantastic job dear :)
