Hey there! I hope I'm not seeming like a total creep by being one of the first few to comment, critique, etc. I just saw this and HAD to comment.

When I first noticed it I was like, "Well, alrighty. Look at that hair. There's so much detail to it and it's so pretty!" And it took me quite a bit of time to glance at it, glance back, and back yet again. For just a bust portrait of this character it seems like there's SO MUCH going on, yet somehow, some way, YOU made it work. Obviously you have an imaginative and unmatched vision and creativity to boot, someone has got to let it all out and I suppose it's you.

So I'm not a regular follower of you, but I did glance at the side bar and see some other works of this specific character by you and only criticisms I have at all about this piece is that perhaps you should make the nose bridge SLIGHTLY longer/more elongated and a tad flatter, and I'm talking slightly. I'm only saying that to coincide with the other pieces you've done of Filaani, but if it's a slight improvement either for just this piece or for future ones regarding her, totally ignore this. I am also saying this because although I absolutely LOVE how you drew her nose, I'm normally used to seeing more flat bridged noses when regarding felidae characters, creatures, and kin-like OC's. Or similar looking creatures. Secondly, with the ears, you may want to elongate it as well or make sure it's a BIT more noticeable color-wise as I felt like I had to search for it. Like previously mentioned with the nose bridge, if that was totally your intentions, you can take this with a grain of salt. Otherwise, this is AMAZING and I seriously hope you keep drawing her. Love this!

I would not know where to start, it's perfect in almost any aspect that comes to mind.

at first looking at it above I thought it was a 3d model with a very good rendering, and suddenly I see that it is a digital art and I am like: what?

first the hair: I had seen people who detail it but you have done something incredible, light transparency, depth and detail, just wow

The face: I can not stop looking at the eyes and the scars, they are very, very detailed and the gradient of colors and shadows is beautiful

The scarf or handkerchief: well the truth is not much to say about it but it maintains the same quality as the hair and the face and I love the way in which in the contours it desases a little like the hair

the shadows and lights are perfectly done none is out of place

I'm very surprised not to have met your work before, after all it's very good, I'm definitely going to see more

you can tell I'm still an amateur because with so much effort I do not even get half the detail you get

my rating is 10 out of 10 I would like to give a neutral or negative point to contribute some advice but the truth is that your work is perfect just like this

From :iconprojectcomment:,

Now first off, let me just compliment on another lovely portrait of your OC Filaani, and I do mean "lovely". While you are a great artist in both color and in design, you seem to be improving more and more as this portrait represents that desire to become better than were before. In this portrait, she seems to be in a more "realistic" form as she appears more human and somewhat lifelike. You did a great job with the coloring as well as the choice in portrait style, presenting her in a somewhat momentary radical fashion as the brushstrokes make her appear cool. Now while her scars seem to represent memories of battles and violence, this style certainly makes her appear rather beautiful and welcoming. I like how you brought out her femininity with just her portrait/bust as well as the amazing details on her. As I said before, this shows your apparent desire for improvement and its what every artist, writer and anyone for that matter needs to do. Would I change a thing? No, because what I see is progress. Well done.

Thank you so much. I have to get her right, for me if no body else. This is the closest I have came to the image in my head of her. I did want to capture a more peaceful moment, where her typical battle ready bitterness was replaced with contemplation, and bit of longing. I wanted the audience to see her in this piece the way that another certain character sees her. It means a lot that you picked up on so many of these points. Thanks again so much, I am so stoked that improvements have been observed.

You're welcome. Yes, I do see your desire to paint her in a different light, a more peaceful light shows a softer side to her. So, I am glad to see, that despite being a well-known and respected artist with amazing talent, you still wish to improve and make your pics look better and better as well as try your hand in many alternate scenarios for characters that others view as one-dimensional. Continue to improve and your pics will be just as you imagined them.

just the hair, I see what you tried, but to see the hair not detail has the face makes it a little bit unpleasing to the eyes, don't get me wrong, this is beautiful, it's a really great piece, and that effect in the scarf and hair, gorgeous, but remark the hair a little bit won't hurt the piece, but if I'm honest with you, just wanna say, keep on the good work, and I hope to see more in the future, plz.
