This made me go "Ooohhh..." I checked out the lineart for this and it's amazing as well. You have so much talent with anatomy and realism, and injecting your own style into it. :) I adore the colors and the theme, it's a modern twist on nouveau.

I do have a few ideas that might be constructive for you. I think it might have been cool to add a touch of blue or purple to her skin. It would look really cool in some places, and connect her with the background. But I do like the clean look you have with her now.

The way you added texture to the nouveau ring is a great touch. I think I'd like to see a more gritty texture there. By that I mean, sandpapery or rocky, something with some noise (the art term, not the sound :dummy:). The smoothness of the glass texture feels too contrasted with your gritty paint splats. I can roll with it though.

To continue my nitpickity streak... I would erase a few paint splatters in the right hand area. The other splats are placed so they look like they are literally on her - and since I love that so much, removing the splats that go on the background too might keep this idea in mind. She also has some miniscule blue splats around her lip area, not sure if it was intentional. Too much OCD. :fear:

As you can see I end up nitpicking details when I'm confronted with something I think is perfect already, so take my comments with a grain of salt. And I am very tempted to just go on for hours at all the great things about this. You know when someone dances so well they make it look easy? Your art is like that. It's so smooth and your creative decisions are meritorious (that's a new word for me, I'm excited!).
What do you think?

Oh I figured this Beauty was of your own creation its just in the eyes and shape of the cheekbones and the look of the hair that made me think of her I'm using my Blackberry so not sure if the link address will work properly but this was the look that I was referring to that made me think of it.
