Re: Feather Girl


nice colors and composition! the feather looks great. I think the head merges uneasily into it, though, probably because the feather is so wispy while the face is a big chunk of solid colors. Without any intervening suggestion of tendons or collarbones, the neck is strangely long. Also, it looks like she's missing some head in the back. I feel like there should be hair protruding past the left side of the bird.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a critique However, I must politely disagree with some of your points. I suspect it's a matter of perception, but I guarantee you she has a full cranium under her hair. The colors may solidify it too much for you, but the lines in the hair itself mirror the wispy look in the feather and it looks good as a black and white image, at least. I agree that the neck is long, but that was a stylistic choice.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
