I love the detail, its romantic but frightening. Like a combination of Klimt and Giger. Nice

I like blues/ greens in your work, thought yellow requires deepness. I would say a little bit closer, softer brush in a face area and darker shadows. But painting took attention for sure.

Is that Atlantis? More importantly, is she supposed to look like a peacock? 0,o

BEAUTIFUL colors though! :D It's beautiful!!!

Thank you :) Indeed, you can say, that this is Atlantis. I thought about Tarpea, who opened the gates of Rome to Sabine... In fact, after that the ancient Romans started to punish the traitors by throwing them from the Rock of Tarpea, where now leads the Roman Capitol. Tarpea is a kind of a symbol, not of a traitor at all, but the symbol of keenness and difficult feelings. Good day :)

Super c:
Well, as an overall piece, I really like it. The colour scheme is appealing, the values are well done, and the contrast in the warm and cool colours is also a nice touch.

I really like the expression on her face; it's very thoughtful. The detail and the shape on the nose are very nice, I can really appreciate that as I have just gotten the hang of noses recently xD

I've been looking at it for a while now (both up close and far away), and there are only two things that slightly bother me. None are particularly major. The first is her shoulders. Even with her torso angled, her one shoulder is wider than the other. Also, and this is very minor, the way the cloth drapes across her leg (our right, her left), I think a slight shadow in the cloth to indicate the shape of her leg underneath it would have been a nice touch. Especially as it seems that she's bringing the fabric back with her left hand.

Back to the positives! I love her body shape, and especially the shape of her limbs. They're well done and look very nice. I also really like the use of yellow to highlight her skin. It's different and very interesting. Though her jaw is pushing manly, it suits her, and I wouldn't change it c: I also like the subtlety of the background. It's highly detailed, but it doesn't draw attention away from her, being the center of the attention.

All in all, I think it is a very successful piece, and I really like the way it turned out. It actually got me to try my oil paints (which I bought but have never ever used before). I was experimenting today and I really like them c: Anyway, props on the good piece. It deserved to be a Daily Deviation c:
