Daily Deviation

Wow. Can I just start off by saying this is absolutely stunning. Literally breath-taking. I'd love to know your thought process while creating this. What caused this image to turn into a flower instead of staying a seed? I have no real critique other than saying I could never understand someone who didn't like this piece. Please keep up the marvelous work. You have definitely have gained a fan from this piece and I can't wait to look through your gallery. By the way, what made you decide on these specific colors and does this piece actually pertain to someone you know in real life? Thank you for sharing this wonderful artwork.

Let me start off with the first thing that popped out at me; the color. It's wonderfully bright and vibrant in contrast to the black that is used for the shape of the girl's face. What really impressed me was that in your description you said that the work was done by eye dropper. This gives the work a unique texture and abstract feel while maintaining the focus on what this piece is about.
Also, this piece, being abstract depending on the onlooker's view, can make one wonder what the artist was thinking creating the work and what the artist wanted their audience to feel looking upon the work. Overall, this piece is simple in color yet complex on execution, the girl beautiful and wonderfully done.

I am amazed by how you did such an amazing paiting with that style. I would say more, but the critics you have gotten pretty much say what I would. It's truly beautiful.

i love how the colors didn't immediately just turn into a purple mush XD i tried pallet knife-painting a couple of days ago, and it was the funnest/biggest mess ever! i love the detail and attention in what initially seems like such a speed-painted piece. now that i read ~Leonidas-of-the-Rock's critique, i do agree that a little more negative space on the one side would have allotted for some nice balancing out, but i still think it's great! well done, sir/ma'am!

The way you use your brushes is slightly reminiscent of alicexz. I love the raw feeling of this, and it's interesting how the blue adds to that, rather than softens it. Nice :)
