EDIT Repainted the nose to fix it a little... :P
Today I felt very upset and depressed... I needed to vent, just drawing randomly what was in my head. Drawing is my vent valve. My salvation. :)

At the end, in fact, I got two results: first of all, now I am more calm and quiet, the second thing I made a quite good drawing, so I'm satisfied.

Entirely made in photoshop with my wacom cinitq.
I don't know how many hours...maybe 4 or 5.

Alright. I will try to be objective, and generous without petting your head.

You are a very good artist, with an excellent sense of shape and colour. You are quite masterful in realism, and you seem to have an impressive ease in using a tablet. In this specific piece, I love the pale and yet bright and vibrant palette you have used for the skin tones, and the way it highlights the eyes. I also find the detail of the lace very impressive, andespecially the shadow of it against the woman's cheek.

The overall choices in colour are great. The bright red works well against the black and the pale tones. The eyes are intense, and the draw the viewer into the picture very strongly.

However, the picture lacks originality. It a shame an artist of your calibre would just spend 4-5 hours drawing a beautiful, mysterious, pale, perfect vampire in a dark veil. We already have way too many of them. How about a wrinkled vampire, or one in scars, or one who dresses in a hippy fashion? How about a vampire from India, or a lazy vampire watching tv? Someone with your skills could create wonders if they picked a more unique subkect.

Some tiny technical suggestions would be to not have the eyebrow be so transparent through-out its length (there shoud at least be -some- point where it's reasonably thick), and to blend the lip colours a tiny bit more, as in real life those tiny lines on the lips are not as strongly visible and pronounced.

I am looking forward to seeing more art from you.

[p.s. An honest critique does not imply I could do better. Heaven knows I couldn't!!!]

A volte il disegno č davvero un toccasana u.u

Comunque, il tuo lavoro č stupendo! E' cosė impressivo!
Ma non riesco a capire bene se quelli sono capelli o del pizzo xD
Pizzo! :D Scusa il ritardo nelle risposte...!
