Man, Kevin this is pretty incredible! I love the attention to detail. The overall piece is really reminiscent of Maxfield Parrish.

I don't want to be an ass but I do think her face is a little warm though. I still love it all the same.

Don't be afraid to be an ass, Adam! To be honest I've been kind of missing the days when we were trying to focus more on constructive criticism on this blog rather than just being cheerleaders for each other (though, some times that's nice too). So I thank you very much for your thoughts, I may pull some of the warmth out and keep it all in blues.

Rah,rah,rah...Goooooo Kevin!

That hand I made fun of earlier is absolutely perfect, lighting, shape, etc. The chest is beautifully done, the hair and the entire piece too. Adam had a good point, I would suggest less texture in the background I think it distracts from the genius painting work you've done.

awww screw it.

Beautiful piece Kevin. I guess I might agree with Adam, that the face is a little too warm, maybe, but not so much with Dave (no offense, Dave). I like the texture in the background.

UAUUuuu uuiii!! Very nice work, absolutely perfect, yes sir!! Love the details!!

I made some of the changes you guys suggested. I simplified the background - a little less texture and I never really liked the snowflakes so I ditched those - I also pulled the warmth out of her face. I'm happier with it now, thanks guys.

Don't know if you remember me, but you drew me a "stay out" sign for my bedroom in the 5th grade and I still have it in my trunk! Wow, It's pretty awesome to see you doing something like this. Does this mean now that your all famous I should sell my drawing on ebay? j/k

Wow, what a gorgeous piece. I love the red nose and the snowflake skirt. The little glimpse of belly and the crown... great detail.
