I like the way you did the background on this. The subtle diagonal lines really add depth. You did a good job on this. Also very interesting the pattern in the upper left corner. Almost like a exit window for the eye when viewing so the eye does not feel trapped within the picture.

Beautiful. It really is vibrant with rhythm and motion. Really like the loose brush strokes you used to simulate the dancing motion.

Really nice. Love the dress and the pose. Says action and excitement. I would recommend that you give more care to the arms and especially the head.

As wild as the painting is on the dress, which I think is really cool, I see it as a painterly way to jazz it all up with riotous strokes that don't exactly mean anything realistically descriptive -- it's all about the wildness and energy. I see this and I suspect it's the usual flamenco staccato of tapping heels and castanets. So slapping paint around showing disconnected marks is still going to imply the same abruptness as the dance shows. Got a bit of the proud matador facing down death in it with quick movements between poses.

But the body is another situation. Were I doing it, I would make her solid and smooth. The arms can be a little more chiseled than the head because of the progression upward to more finish, wilder below. And you can even use some well placed chisel marks in the face. And the hands are a big part of the attitude of the poses. So those I would tend to make cleaner.

I don't think you're far off. I think it's just a matter of being more precise when it comes to the face. Heavily made up faces are ideal to paint because they read so easily and give is a way to naturally jazz it up.

I appreciate your movement toward the painterly. It's awesome. This crit is not meant to say this is really off. It's actually really strong. Just thought I would throw this out for consideration.

Bravo! :):):):):)

Very powerful and beautiful image!
I can agree with a lot of things D Akey has said but I could also live with it the way it is.
One thing that bothered me right away (and would be easy to fix) is the red stroke just below the middle of the figures left forearm and next to the left breast. It seems like something odd hanging off her arm.

Impressive work Ray and as is so often the case Mr D Akey gives wonderful advice. This is very close to being masterful and there is certainly much here that needs to be praised. :eek:

I had the impression I already saw this painting from You in the past, although this one looks more vivid and shining.
Is it a wrong déjà-vue impression or is it a new version in AR3?
It's great anyway!
