Reallly lovely, very mysterious. The intricate linework of the hair is what draws me in.

The flow of the composition is flawless. The background skelton is facing left, then the women both facing right, andcurved back by the dog and the remaining hair. Wow I love the quiet tone or vibe. It is greatly harmonized by the subtle color tone. Great piece I am adding it to my favs.

Your welcome. I was checking out your other work. I really admire the way your figures flow in there environment. I have trouble with that. Many of my images are rigid and yours are fluid. Am I mistaken or do I see a bit of Schiele influnce?

Yes, That movie is called Two Sisters. I saw it in theaters while in Korea in 2005. It did serve as inspiration

I had to make myself stop looking at this after a while. I really get lost in the whole hair thing and then the dog is like a surprise everytime. And I wonder what the body language says about the relationship of the two girls. "they must be sisters" I think to myself. And there is a moose that I don't understand but I take it as something that represents an abstract feeling between the two characters. Perhaps a mood that comes over them when they are in a certain setting. Strangeness.

I really like the way your basic color toning is complemented by the slightly sketchy lines underneath it. Their legs have weight to them and the collisions of your shapes seem very solid and still. Very much like a photo.

I LOVE this picture. The hair is just....beyond amazing, and the moose-elk-prehistoric skeleton of badassness is GREAT. The window seems a bit askwew, but I think I like it that way :] And SWEETLORD&JESUS did I mention the hair? IT'S GREAT.

Awesome. The detail on the hair is incredible. And Irish elk are among my favorite extinct animals.

haha. Well I think I like both of them pretty equally.

I actually got my picture taken next to an Irish Elk skeleton in Dublin. It was SO awesome.

I have to show this to my boyfriend, he loves corgis (although we already have a super cute shiba inu). I love the hair.

That is delightfully strange! I love how their hair mixes together, and the moose skeleton is very creepy and fun. Excellent colors, excellent textures! The lil corgi is way cute.

Gorgeous. I love this direction of style you're sharing. Your line work is beautiful. It's so conceptual and intriguing. The one thing I'd like to point out though is that crack in the ceiling. I'm not sure abou it, but it seems somewhat awkwardly placed. I'm not sure... the rest of the piece seems overall symmetrical, that crack seems to be thrown in there for the sake of being there.
