Story: A lady who's in love with a man, but sadly their days of being together had to be disrupted by incoming war. The man was sent to fight... leaving the poor lady behind to wait quietly for him to return. This scene was about when she was stunned by the news that her lover was dead. There's also a trace of sadness where she feels she have to accept it. Yea yea yea.... a typical story in any books or movies... I just love watching movies and reading books for inspiration. =P

You could have gone the whole hog and put little tears on her cheeks. Umm maybe not that would have been going too far. MUSHY! She looks like she is crying inside and strong on the outside.

22 D. Chong replies: "  Woah, really? Looking sad in the inside and strong on the outside.?? hm.. now I sort of agree with you eventhough it was not intended, lol. That is what I was planning to put before (the tears) but yeah it would be over doing it and also since I'm a amateur I would work on the basics first before working in a more challenging piece."

she's so pretty, there's really only good things to say about it 1
The colors just fit and her hair is really wonderful 1

It's good, but it looks like she has 2 eyebrows and stubs for legs because the part of the dress from her knees down look empty.

22 D. Chong replies: "2 eyebrows?! o_O Ok, i get about the leg bit but the "eyebrows"? Lol, anyways I know that her waist down looks empty because I actually found her sitting position quite tough, but I'm still practicing on that =)"

Add a bit more emotion, I am not saying it doesn't have emotion, but for someone who just lost the love of her life it is a bit few.
Love Rian

:-) D. Chong replies: "Yes, I guess. I drew this picture without having alot of thought into the expression to look 'sad' enough."

I like it, but her eyes could have more expression.

5 D. Chong replies: "  lolz, that I would have to agree. I was actually aiming for sadness and more expression and all. But since this is one of my 'baby-step' drawing, I was really terrible of bringng out that emotion/expression >"
