This is AMAZING. At first glance, I was halfway convinced it was a photo! Honestly, I can't find anything that needs improvement here, your work has such great quality to it, so I gave you full marks for everything. Anyways, I'll just babble about my favorite parts of the piece!

First off, the overall colour scheme is absolutely gorgeous. The red really captures the eye's attention, and is also drawn in by the pretty glittery effect on the girl's hair as well as the red cloth and her lips. The black background creates a wonderful contrast too with her skin, so it's quite eye catching.

Your attention to detail here is awesome! Everything is so real and lifelike, I love it! The one part I particularly enjoy is the shadows around the girl's eyes. Very soft and real looking, not to mention that the proportions of her face and upper body are great too. The transition of her hair to the glitter is quite smooth and it blends well with the rest of the piece. Again, fantastic, beautiful job you've done here. :)

Wow, this is great <3 That red really pops out with her pale skin, and I love the 'crumble' or 'cracking' theme! At first I thought this was a photoshop illustration, but wow...This must have taken long hours with all that detail!

Thanks. Yes took a very long time especially as it was first in series and even now I am still trying to find the best way to achieve the fragmented look I am going for.

Interesting, have you also tried a shattered glass type of look with any of your work (sorry, haven't checked your full gallery yet)? With your skills that would look beautiful too!

I have 5 more portraits in this series and am working on a couple more. Am also experimenting by painting on glass which I will later attack with a hammer. Not sure if it will work out!
