This is completely amazing. I am in love with pieces that have this transitional process between an object and the main focal point in the picture. I love the composition as well as the colors. The shading is wonderful throughout the picture...I think there are only two things when I look at the picture that I can possibly critique and that would be more shading and highlight to the water and the hand on the left is a little distorted and all the wrinkles on the middle of the fingers are a little more distinct than they normally would be. When fingers bend, those wrinkles tend to become more subtle...but man, this piece is incredible. Wonderful, wonderful work. Bravo! ^.^

love this, at first glance I am pulled in, the more I look the more I discover. wow so well thought out, did it grow randomly from a thought or did you have a clear vision which you followed step by step?

voices call, but cannot reach them
on the waves of infinite tears...
dreams are written with the ink
of my sorrows...as i chase forever

Stunning work!
I love those eyes! So expressive!
I also love how the hair is a shipwreck and the collar is made of books... and I've just noticed how the inkpot is like a doll's head.. amazing!
This may be about a specific legend, but by using symbolism and metaphors you've created something that is open to interpretation and works on many levels. This is so emotional and inventive, well done x
