"Don't feed us Photoshopped lies and silicone promises. Give us imperfection and someone real"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(SOLD)
This is part of a series (named: "Imaginary Girls") I'm working on at the moment

Tools:
-Watercolour
-Pencils
-Acrylic paint
-A3 Watercolor paper
-White Gelpen

I used photoshop to stitch the scans. Unfortunately I couldn't get the scans right so it's a bit off from the real work. The pink colours are more of a purple in real life.

First off, the general shape of the face and hair is very good. The gray eyes actually work very well with the rest of the picture. The same can be said for the lips.

I like the absence of shading on the face, which lets the black lines show the contours of her face. The slight shading below the jaw line adds a bit of depth.

Now for the colors. They work well against the lack of color on her face. I like the runs of red and blue on the left a bit more than the the design of the right side. The thin white lines do help break up the reds, otherwise it would kind of meld together without much definition.

This es a very nice piece of art.

I really like the contrast of her sort of faint eyes with the black tears. It's like she cried all the color out of them!

Yeah, the stitching can be a pain in the ass. When you scan in parts, commit to one side of your scanner, and stick your work with masking tape. This way, even if the sensor is a bit off, you get the angle right for both parts, and it's easier to put together. Still think you did a great job here.
Fantastic concept and execution, delivering a very powerful message. Well done.

Yeah the scanning part was really hard to get right. Especially because my scanner has 2 edges so I can't put my work on entirely flat. Thanks for the tip, I'll try it next time!
Thank you for the compliments as well! I really appreciate it :)

I love how you painted the drips on her face, as well as your message. She looks lovely and imperfect, which makes her lovelier.
