More from Imalou, and of course, it is very nice. The lines are smooth, most of them. There's a part on the bottom of the ear that looks clipped, other than that, nice lines. The colours give off a warm feeling the eyes are well moist and reflective along with the green iris in a realistic feel of imperfection. The hair blends in with the light source, and depending on the person that may or may not be the best thing, though I personally like it. The straw is a nice touch, it is also very uniform with the mouth which in its own right is quite detailed. The ear is nice though it is not as detailed as other parts of the body and the job seems like it was the quickest to get done whereas the eye looks to have taken the most effort. The picture is unbalanced, but overall a nice picture, I would still recommend friends look at this art.
Some areas you could work on if you so desire: Line smoothness (just no sudden changes in angle like where the ear seems clipped, very minimal), balance of detail... I think that's it. Good work, keep the art coming.
What do you think?

A lot can be said about a person from a look in their eyes. I absolutely love this.

realistyc,i like it.
Fairy-Slayer Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012
I love the determined look in her eye, like she's been challenged and her glare alone can win the argument by itself. If she's been asked to compete then her opponent's confidence level would instant drop a few notches with a look like this. Gorgeous work on her face, especially her eyes and the shapes making up her mouth and "cheek" to make this view so quiet and tense. With so much detail on her face and the stalk I have to wonder: did you paint her hair in less detail as a way to push focus to her face?

(I know, maybe I can't quite reconcile the title with the strong impression the pictures leaves me with.)

Applejaaaack! Such a lovely picture, with beautiful warm rich colors that suit her perfectly, and I love what you've done by airbrushing (I believe) over parts of her with white to suggest very strong lighting... simple but perfect. Everything about the painting job is delightfully smooth and I love her expression, and the only suggestion I can possibly offer you is to perhaps devote a little more time to her hair texture the next time, as you did on your Venetian piece which I likewise loved. This may not be practical if you're trying to stay within a certain timeframe though, I don't know, and on that note I really have to thank you because this piece is a reminder that I can and should work on my own speed in my future projects.

Lovely work, in any case!

You captured her so well :D One of the best pictures of AJ that I've seen yet~

First thought: Holy shit that shading. Truly amazing work right here.

On a side note, whats with the off bar of brightness at the top and bottom?
ThatFurryOverThere Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012
Dammit, odd* bar of brightness. Silly f key, d is more useful then you.
EllyGirl2809 Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome! I love the style you used and the colour is lovely. Also the straw really adds something and the eyes are brilliant
