Is this the real life, or the dream? She's doing what she's dreaming of course, but what's she dreaming?

 Don't ask what inspired this picture, i have no clue. I don't really know why her floor has blue stuff on it or why there is blood dripping down the walls. It was a really quick picture that took around an hour to do. If you can tell i was feeling super random today....


--All critisism is wanted, i need to get better so any tips are welcome.

Strangely enough, my favorite part of this picture is her feet - they’re just really well drawn! 1

I agree with Melissa, you did draw her feet very well. Her face is well drawn too. Is this a s-elf portrait?

:-) Noora Khalid replies: "Thank you very much! Sadly no it is not a self-portrait, i can never seem to draw myself or people i know... so i just have a character who symbolizes me... you might see her sometime if i ever get things posted XD"

I was drawn to this image because of the color. The blood is creepy!22
One thing I would mention is the perspective. I think you were intending her to reach for the door handle. But the floor and door are almost parallel with the viewer. She is facing towards us and so she couldn’t be reaching for the door. If you slanted the perspective with the left side of the door at the bottom left of the screen and then slanted the wall up to the right it would work. You may look up in art books vanishing points and how they work. It looks like you tried using a vanishing point for the floor boards.

:-) Noora Khalid replies: "Yahhhh i realized a bit ago looking back at this picture that the angles are a little odd and... yah i’m trying to get better at it ^^ thank you!"
