Just like the other one I just commented. I love this one too! Maybe even more. The other one was very dark compared to this one. It is how can I say it, more cleaned uplined. But I still at the same time get the collage feeling, and I can tell you are an expert creating shadows, så her face really pops. I don´t know exactly why but this piece of art of yours make me think a little about pop art. I think it is the blue color beneith her eyes, and the way you have created movement in her hair. Wonderful, just wonderful. I know she looks sad, but for me she looks like she has comed to term with it, and is about so soon open up her eyes, wipe away her tears, and stop crying. But that is my imagination probably

Thanks again for the comment. I really like your interpretation of this piece and yes, I can see a resemblance to pop art. I've never really noticed that until you mentioned it, thanks :D

Love the idea to paint on paper, at first I thought it was digitally added. Nice work with the painting as well :nod:

This is cool. after reading Ru1n3d's comment, I zoomed out, and I't didn't have the same feeling as up close. I like the zoomed in. I think it really captures the emotion better. good job!Love

Thank you. After reading your comment I decided to zoom in and and out myself haha... I see what you and Ru1n3d mean, the piece is a lot more powerful zoomed in.
