I would have to say that usually I don't like centralized work sometimes but this is gorgeous. My eye continues to move around looking for more hidden features. oh my I just saw the crow's foot. I really love your attention to detail when it comes to the fur. The only problem that I have is that the face barely get any attention. I am not sure if this was your attention but I can't even see the girls face because I am so distracted by the rest of the teaxtural tease of the fur and feathers. I love the dripping technique that you have going on in this piece however. It adds a wonderful texture. I am watching you now so if you would like I would be more than happy to offer any type of critique on your pieces. I hope that this small paragraph has been some help. Oh also Your choice in colors are nice. It was a very smart choice to go with the toned down rustic red with those hints of the aqua and yellow color. If you had gone too green in those hinted colors I do believe it would have turned out bad but your choice of colors are very suitable to the piece.

Thank You! I hope I have helped a little bit. -^_^-

I just love the fur and feathers, sort of gives it a wrapped up warm on a winters day sort of feeling to it, makes you feel warm inside, cheers, Mike.

I think this one is one of your best ones, it just seams to pop out of the paper more, not like I didn't love your other works but they seamed to have something missing. This imagery seams a lot stronger in this, which I like even more.

The way you merge the images is beautiful, and the subtle use of blue between the shades of red makes it pop more.
I also love how your not afarid to let the colours run.
A truely interesting and beautiful piece.
