This is amazing! You never fail to impress me! I absolutely love the detail! How long do these drawings take you? My only critique is kinda annoyingly minute but whatever xD The ear looks like its turned out...as in it looks like an ear from a profile picture...so at the angle her face is you should make the ear thinner so it looks like its flatter against her head instead of sticking out (well it shouldn't be completely flat against her head of course because she has hair tucked behind it) but I hope I'm making sense? Goodness I'm talking about the angle of an ear XDDD wowwww I might just be seeing things too haha
haha no you're totally right about the ear! My mom actually said the exact same thing when she saw it (but I had pretty much already declared it "done" and I was just too lazy to go back and redo that whole side of her face haha). Thank you for the kind comment and the awesome critique-- it's always good to know these things, because now I know its something I really have to look out for in the future!
haha thank you for your mini comment-critique!!!! and thanks, I worked for a long time on the flowers and smaller details
And you're so right about the light! I guess I got in this passive state where I just threw shadows and highlights where I "felt" they should go, without ever really defining a light source. I'll be sure to look out for that next time!
