Your work reminds me of dali and john tenniel (colored of course).
I like it because it explores a strange part of our conscience and also a lack of it.It scares me just like visions i had under the inluence of LSD.
Keep up the good work!
otherwise i don't have much to say so excuse me but i will say bla bla until the end of the text bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla.
What do you think?

whoa. this looks like the actor, Angelina Jolie. it reminds me of something i often think of, what a sad life celebrities have. they are like puppets on strings, imprisoned entertainers. the demented public follows their every move and ridicules every mistake they make. sure they choose that life, but it seems to me our species has taken it to a very strange place. this is a powerful piece to me, even if i'm completely wrong about your intention behind it. :blushes:

Your work is good, but..the style is all over the place. It looks like you get inspired by an artist, then take over that style for a piece or two, then move on to the next. I don't know if I could detect any of YOUR style in any of these pieces.
I'm not trying to be a dick in saying this, I'm merely pointing out the fact that, when I look at your paintings, I'm too distracted by thinking of the artist that influenced the painting to be able to appreciate the skill with which the work was created.
I will be anxious to see your work, once you have developed a distinct style, all your own.
Influences are great...and important to education and developement...but when the influences overshadow the creation...it may be time to re-think your creative process.
Again...your technical ability is impressive, but I would love to see your own personal style break through.

I practice the chameleon style :)) You are so right, but for the moment I feel that I want to experiment as I'm still young... I had friends that after painting one or two years had already a "style", for me it seemed to be such a waste - to solidify your ego into a single way to express your self...on the other hand I'm too much influenced in some works by some artists, as Michael Hussar in some details from this one...
too bad I'm not a greek to say that I was kidnapped by gods, and blame them for doing it :P

Have you seen work by Michael Hussar? This reminded me of him when I saw it.

It's both beautiful and morose.

The face is so very luscious; wet-looking...but her bodice seems sort of flat in comparison; but really; the whole is much better than the sum of its parts.

yay you painted something again :). this is so painfull to look at, in a good way. very strong symbols! the target rings around the breast are a really cool idea. i somehow wished that one of the figures looked at me directly, maybe the puppet in her hands :).

I love this piece, It is the first piece that has made me consider getting premium membershi so I can write a critique on it. The composition, subject matter, use of light, colouring and movement within the piece all work together to make it compelling. It's sad, sexual, amusing and thought provoking. Nice job
