Really beautiful! I love the colours, and that gaze is just so gripping! Her breast is as flat as a board though, perhaps a little revision there wouldn't go amiss! Curves in the silhouette are a good thing, after all.
hey thanks so much for the compliment and the critique! : D im no big fan of revisions, but i will try to make it better with the next painting! : D and damn, youre skilled for your age, i hope to see more paintings of you soon!
well, the best way to learn is just to paint alot. im sure you heard this very often but its just simple like that. try to make tons of studies of what you see. take your sketchbook and paint. and be patient : )
just with a pencil ; ) not the media is important but the practice. i also started with pencils and colored pencils. its good to try like everything you can get, from traditional to digital media. but.. thats a further step.... a normal pencil is just fine for the beginning.
