The idea for this piece is that the girl feels like she doesn't live up to the world's standard of beauty. (I don't think the picture conveys the message very well, however, so I may redraw this piece.)

I'm surprised nobody as mentioned your roses at the background. They're beautiful. The colors in the hair are amazing too. So diverse and yet they all come together wonderfully. The shadings on the skin are very subtle too, a touch of yellow here and there. The eyes, good God, are gorgeous. Look at the irises and the eyelashes! Well done.

Just one thing, the expression is a bit vague. Maybe you can do something with the eyes to bolden her face and make it more intense? Perhaps you made... (more »)

I would love to use this in my new blogger - I ♥ Pentacles - with your permission., of course. I'm posting something on Aradia, an Italian witch, and thought this picture was perfect. Please consider. :)

Wow, a very beautiful piece. I also love the message that this is trying to convey. Women (and girls) today seem to be constanatly influenced by America's materialism and the media.
