On this piece I'm going to start with where I'm taking stars away because I really didn't want to take any away at all, yet I found when I got to impact there were two things that really forced my hand.

These issues are that I think you may actually have too much going on in the figure area and that the background feels too flat in contrast.

Together, these two factors pushed the impact down for me as I felt the eye more pushed away than pulled into the piece.

Now, on to the strengths. I feel this is very much a piece that understands the history of illustration, drawing heavily on Klimt and McKean, both of whom are great shoulders to stand on. It feels timeless yet modern.

While pushing this much extra line work and illustrative extra into the work may have reduced the impact I can't think of any one particular piece that isn't strong in of itself; the double exposure, the gold line work, the collage and cosmic elements all work beautifully in of themselves and adding them to this image feel very original to me.

All in all, an image I am very glad to add to my favorites.

This is beautiful! Despite the color everywhere, I can't help be drawn to her eyes, and the white in her hair really pops out. I very much favor, as well, the intricate markings on her arms, in contrast with the pattern of her dress. An excellent work, and if I get my new apartment, I will want a print of this.

Your work has such a real-life textural feeling, even though it's digital. This is really impressive!
