She's seriously sexy, all right.

Dunno why, but I saw this and thought of Proserpina by Rossetti. It's probably the expression, if anything. Anyway, very nice work.

Heh, well, that's now two of my favorite female vocalists you've painted. Should I find the third in your gallery I'll be slightly creeped out.

Anyways; like that one better than the Tarja one. Not because it was actually worse, it wasn't, but this one somehow feels more focused, don't know if I could explain it even if I tried, so I won't.

At any rate, let's start by saying I really, really like it. The shading's still good, the light direction is consistent, the colors great, and the highlights in her hair very well placed. Now, with that out of the way, what's the deal with airbrushings and eyes & lips being too vivid? I keep running into this. Yes, both those things look very good in this piece, but the pupils are too bight and the lips seem to have a ton of gloss on them...

(ok, sidenote; Scabbia does like to really overdo it where makeup's concerned, so this may be consistent with your source picture, don't know, I don't look at references; what I said about the eyes still applies though)

...also, the neckline, shoulders, hairstrands all seem flat and unfinished when (and only when) compared to the face, so I must ask if this was intended? I could see it being part of the concept, I suppose, but I don't care for it too much.

Anyway, don't take much of the above to heart, I really do enjoy this pic and definitely wouldn't have bothered to bitch that much about it if it wasn't really good.

peace

wow simply amazing... ive been doing cristina portraits for awhile... all traditional though. this is the best digital work that ive seen of her. I appreciate the fact that even though you had a ref. pic, this is an original portrait. Believe me, i've looked at alot of LC art and this is the most original and the most accurate portrait of miss scabbia. Kudos to you-
