Ugh, why did I ever think it was a good idea to pluck my eyebrows?

I'm not sure if your face was really close to the light source or what kaf but there seems to be an abundance of light cast on your face that immediately drops away past your chin. The fold shadows on your right arm (viewed on left) seem too heavy giving a bit of a choppy feeling whereas the treatment of the fabric shadows on the opposite arm make it much more believable that there's an arm beneath the sleeve. Other than that this is uber! I think you did a splendid job capturing...well...yourself! lol I'm fairly certain I have the same necklace as you in this pic too lol I love the small details like the necklace and the scallops of the shirt only being seen on the right side and fading into a general shape the farther from the eye it is. I think that was executed beautifully. The way you did your hair was really well done, lots of fine details there!

Job well done!

Thanks for the commets and :iconiloveyouplz:

I did put more time and more blue tones into the face, but I also think I didn't quite correct enough for some shine on the image because on some monitors the face does look a little bleached out. It is not quite that bad IRL.

i've been away from dA for too long so I'm trying to get back into the flow and comment as much as possible >.<

also, i got tumblr o.O it's solely for scraps/sketches but follow me if u have tumblr too :P

it's true that IRL is usually much greater then a picture of something, cameras tend to flatten things like brush lines, nuances and shiny things ;)

The tone and lighting of the skin is really well done and contributes to the sincere mood of the painting. The lighted area of hair down the left side the hair looks a little flat but that could just be a glare on the canvas. Very nice work. I've been doing a lot of self-portraits recently in school and they are challenging. Keep up the good work!

The hair was don fairly well. However her face appears pallid, the lighting is inconsistent with that of the neckline.

With the neck, the trapezius is fairly prominent while her frame is somewhat petit. The brushwork is solid but I would recommend blending your values, 'softening your edges' as my teacher used to say.

Well the face, it is pale IRL. There is blue to be found because I am a redhead. However, I think the photo has bleached it out a little more. I'm pretty happy with the face but you're right, it does have a different quality to the neck and chest.

Can you elaborate on what you mean about the trapezius?

And about softening the edges?

beautiful colors in complexion! Love the values of light and dark in the hair. The only thing I would suggest is some kind of light source showing in the background. Otherwise, it's perfect and I love the expression on the face!

What kind of a light source are you thinking of? There's not really a background here, just brown. So I am not sure that it wouldn't look odd

I'm not sure. Like a lighter value of in the background to suggest a light source. But don't try it if you don't want to. I don't want my suggestion to ruin your painting :D haha

I admire your attention to detail, and I also quite like how you've done your hair, I do also find curly hair a bit tricky to do, but at the same time, fun.
I'm was wondering, the light/highlight in you face has a bit of a blue tinge, it looks almost as if you're cold (slight zombie) in comparison to your neck/chest area.
Other than that, You've once again done a magnificent piece!

There is some blue to be found in my face because I am so pale... maybe I could try and find some more blue below to unify it.

Thankyou :)

This is absolutely beautifully done~! You seem to be developing and honestly already have a great mastery of the acrylic medium. I struggle with acrylics so I really commend you. The clothing detail and texture is amazing.
