Only one thing I wonder, great work, admired it but, I think the cleaverage is an unnecessary addition meant to welcome people to look and favs? If I am right about it, that is lame dear, cause portrait itself rocks anyway
Wow, thanks, I guess. And nah, I don't feel the need to use boobs to get more attention. In this case I just painted what I saw, and it was more about composition that anything else. I thought just a floating head would be kind of odd. And in other cases, I just paint whatever comes to mind hahah. Is that alright with you?
this was my humble opinion, as far as you feel right about it, I have no right to make judgements.
But we are strangers talking each other, just for fun, so let me go on to beat my brains out on this. I still not very convinced on composition integrity argument, cause what bothers me is not about showing the frontal chest, the breast fork which can barely seen and the little bit swollen october fest style cleaverage, making me start to think about your sexual appeal instead of what you are as an artist. I personally not like that kind of cheap tricks, but I not also %100 sure you did this on purpose, cause you are already fucking talented and as far as I can see from this and other a few self portraits, you look like a beautiful girl..
So after I eliminate the attention hunger possibilities on this, I thought maybe you are not old enough to feel that confidence,but 19 is not the age I was expecting, (yeah I looked the homepage, I could be rgiht maybe you were 16) anyway, lets just accept it as a honest cleaverage than.
But what I think is, instead of that side pressed bumpy fork, it would be much cooler to complete the portrait with a fully naked torso, which ends just before your nipples. And you can still use a little longer hair to make the composition fits what you achieved here.
