Christ I could spend hours looking at this. And I prolly have. I bookmark images like this to remind me what art can be, and every time it gets to a part of me I thought past feeling genuine emotions. I don't know how to praise enough a picture that takes my breath away every time I see it.
I love the glassy look you gave her eyes, they are the highlight of this artwork for sure. I mean, it's pretty obvious that's the emphasis of this piece, but still c: How did you keep her eyes symmetrical on her face? Is it just a matter of practice?
