The colors are beautiful and dark, contributing to the general darkness of the piece as well as the mood. There are nice details in the head gear of the girl, yet some parts are not distinct. However, that indefinite touch also works for the mood making the piece even more mysterious. The lighting shown on the face, head gear, and shoulder are nice. The eyes are the most arresting part of this work. They are sharp and serious, deadly and fierce. The grayish color of the skin also is a nice touch. Overall a fantastic piece. The only suggestion would be a to add spot of color or something else to the piece to draw even more attention towards the face, esp. towards the eyes since this is a portrait piece.
I really love the way it's illustrated, the lines make a wonderful impact to the eye. The colors also give off a very transparent feel, only making it even more appealing. In other words, "IT'S REALLY PRETTY AND I LOVE IT." And I do truly love it. I certainly hope you have more pieces like this, my only complaint is that it's not a full body, which would've been interesting, at least to me. But I suppose leaving it to the imagination is only fair, so once again, i must say, Bravo. It's beautiful, and I love it. A lot.
