Your window looks like a mirror to me - no reason a mirror
can not have a fantastic shape. I don't know why she would
be sitting in front of a mirror either, but at least that
preserves her modesty. Nice work anyway... Gwen Phifer
replies: "*gasp* i didn't even realise it, but it does look like a mirror... hmmm... this could be a good thingthanks for commenting!"

First... put thoughts into her mind... her eyes already look thoughtful... They almost look pained or even full of hate.. And for some reason... When you mentioned a window... (or even a mirror..) I pictured it without any viewable support but a natural backround to it... either a forest type or maybe a cavern... But that's just my randomness.. good luck... and again.. i really love your style and work.. Gwen Phifer
replies: "YAY! I'm so glad someone noticed her eyes. I tried really hard to put into them a look of total discust (?) ... that's what i get for listening to 3 Days Grace while drawing this. and the forest/cavern idea is tempting too... I'm gonna hafta do several renditions of her... *sigh* darn... "

I really love the posture and then look in her eye, like I've disturbed her work or something. great work Gwen Phifer
replies: "yeah... she does give that impression... hehehe... it's what i was striving for - the look of utter hate... i dunno how well i got it, but I'm glad that you caught it... thanks for the comment! ( if i make no sence it's because it is so late at night for me... ) "

Once again a very beautiful image. Honestly, you have a talent for poses. 3 things: 1) on the foot on the ground, try not to make the arch-line so prominent. By all means make it obvious like the muscle lines on the back, but not so heavy. 2) What is that line thing? 3) the ONLY thing that bugs me about the face is the eys. You have perfect pose & expression, but an almost solid black eye is unnerving. Experiment with different eye details.
Im very impressed by this image, well done indeed Gwen Phifer
replies: "Once again - a good comment! 1-yeah- about that foot... my mom mentioned the exact same thing... it has been fixed since this version... 2- what line thing? O- *that* line thing... heh- i suppose you mean my half-effort at an interesting window... 3- the eyes- she's magical... like a selkie... <(lame excuse that seems to work around here) and once again- thanks! "

I'd round her foot off more along with her nose. I'd also darken the attachment between the foot and the toes. And i have no idea what that line from the knee it doing.... i'd get ride of that and develop the bg. Yet you don't need one. Nice illustration! Gwen Phifer
replies: "i didn't clean up this pic before posting it... thus- lots of lines that should not be there... altho i agree with the rounding off and shading... i'm just lazy... "

I really like the expression on her face. How about linking the mirror idea with making her more of a fantasy figure, by having her reflection reveal her true self, such as having wings or something? Just a random idea I had! Good luck with the picture. Gwen Phifer
replies: "OOO! interesting... "

When I first saw the pic I thought that the window line was actully smoke. So theres a random idea - a naked girl smoking an making spirals! Itsnot particullarly good idea for a background though...
Love this pic, its so realistic. Gwen Phifer
replies: "oh! good idea! Thanks for commenting. I really wish I had time to work this one out. It’s an oldie, but I still like it. ^.^"

She could be looking out of a luxurious tent flap at dessert dunes or an oasis? Gwen Phifer
replies: "Also a really interesting idea! Thanks for commenting!"
