January, first of the 12 months that most likely will never be finished.

Edit: I have redone her face. Does it look any better?

The overall picture is amazing, and the coloring is equally as beautiful as the whole thing. Shading on all the folds and wrinkles of the clothes is done very well, if not perfectly, without it being over-shaded. This picture really matches the month that this is to go along with.

A bit of constructive criticism, if you do not mind it from someone like me, is about the face of this girl. Overall, her expression seems to lack expression in it, perhaps because the eyes don't seem to be focused on anything, so they give the appearance of staring off into empty space. Also, using the eyebrows, maybe drawing them higher for example, can really help to give off emotion on a face if you want to try experimenting with that. The only other thing about the face is the side of it. If it is supposed to be turned away slightly, like how I think it is supposed to be, you can try putting in a bit of an inward curve where the eye is to give the face a bit more of a natural curving where the cheek is at.

Overall, this is a very nice picture. The colors are chosen wonderfully, and it is shaded beautifully as well. I do hope I managed to be of some help to you as well, since your art is very pretty and has potential to be absolutely magnificent. So keep it up and have fun as well.

I see where you are comming from. The face was indeed turned a bit in the original version and so where the eyes. But for some reason it looked completely unatrual and i tried to "fix" the problem. It looks atleast a lot better now. I will try to give her face a bit more simatrical shape in just a few minutes since it looks like only changeing her face (eyes nose) did not do the trick. But hey, this one was drawn 2 years ago with those HUGE anime eyes. The smaler ones she has now don't really fit the face don't you think?

Anyway thank you for pointing out that her face is indeed a annoying factor in the picture. It makes it worthwile to chance it. Thanks

The eyes are indeed nice, I do like them in this picture. Also, I do apologize. When I posted my comment with the constructive criticism, I didn't realize the date this work had been posted. I normally pay attention to that. So, if you are disappointed that I posted constructive crit on a year old picture, I do apologize for it.

Your art is very lovely, I took some time to look through your gallery and your art is quite pleasing to the eye.

No no, i love your comment! Good critics are hard to find these days. Its so much better to read some nice person telling me what can be done better then the endless "I like it/good work/go to hell" comments :D
I acctually tried to fix her face a bit more but to no avail. She still looks rather creepy with the dolls eyes. I have not uploaded that file yet, though. My computer has a bad temper and is on a strike at the moment. :D (bad computer)
Even older works deserve critics, that is why editing work is sutch a good thing :D Please sir, keep on posting critics amd make DA a better place :D

Oh, I realized after I posted this, that is is an older work of yours. I apologize for giving constructive criticism on something older of yours, since you could have improved anything I had pointed out. So again, I apologize for that.
