The way she is dwelling in her own world should give everyone an idea on what our inner selves do when we're sad. the abnormal streaks of blue and red on the tree bring a sense of forbidding the the person viewing this marvilous piece of artwork. The shadows over her skin, her fadded face, and the way she's curled into a ball make the viewer want to find out what her face looks like; whether it be streaming with tears or just a monrose, thoughtful expression as she mulls over the meaning of life and her sadness. It seems she is shrinking away from the world, not wanting to venture out and have it crush her in its merciless grasp. The whole thing flows wonderfully and you incorperate emotions really well. My favorite part, for whatever reason, is er hair. It's like a curtain from the outside world, sheilding her away. I do love this picture and it really made me start thinking about my own sadness. Amazing picture, I am amazed by all of it. May your inner self break free of the darkness and shine in light, for you are a beautiful person and deserve happiness.
Thanks so much for your insightful and thought filled crituique. It's nice to see how I am growing as an artist.
