I don't need one hundred words for my critique, this is a wonderful work, and I think you are one of the most creative painters on DA - I totally love your stuff. I would only suggest that the mouth and lips looks a bit unfinished and perhaps slightly too small. The lower teeth especially look slightly unfinished compared to the rest of the painting. I'm not sure if that's because the painting is very small which would make it difficult to do much more detail in the mouth area, ( I didn't notice what the size of the painting is). Everything else looks very good especially the hands. You were perfect with the hands, their color is exactly what the painting needs. Keep it up Borda!

hehe, when i was little, my aunt told me and my niece (we were the same age) that if you were a princess, wether or not you knew it yourself...
if you WERE a princess, your tears would turn into crystals, so when you cry you shoukd try to catch them in a box and see for yourself after some time XD
