Well I'm not an artist so I can't really say anything intelligent like everyone else  :(  .. but that's one of the best damn harpy pieces I've seen ever !   :)   Seriously this is gorgeous :) ... Harpies are thought of as these horribly grotesque monsters and you've captured one more as a beautiful, innocent "every-day woman" sort of person - only with wings and talons  :)    (or at least in my personal opinion anyways :)  )

That was one of the most intelligent comments I ever recieved on this work because that was exactly what I wanted to pass to other people. That not everything is what it seems, sometimes there's more than meets the eye ^^
I've so glad you commented on this. I really appreciate it :iconsweethugplz:
Also, being an artist or not, doesn't mean people don't have an opinion. :meow: many people aren't artists, but art isn't only for other artists to see and appreciate. Art is for everyone, and as so, everyone can have an opinion about it ^^

Hi I am from :iconbeaute-lamour: and excuse me for the super late critique but these days I am super busy. But I will be critiquing this from a naturalistic point of view or to some realism. First I really like your unique sense of style and the way you do art, you have a signature style and I admire that because on this site almost everyone art looks the same and yours stand out and I love that; nice breath of fresh air. Your lines are very vibrant and has a nice rhythm and movement to it.

Ok since it is unclear to me what your ultimate goal as an artist is I have to critique this from a realistic point of view. Ok first if you are taking more of a naturalistic route with your piece, then I suggest to add more of a transition between your values and work on the values of your piece. To me some of your shadows make the light appear that it is coming from the side but it is a little difficult to determine because the leg shadows show that the light is coming from the side but the shadow under the breast looks like the light is coming from the top. I suggest to stick with 1 light sources but if you want to do 2 light sources than just make each one more distinctive of each other. Like you could try making one softer than the other and the other light source stronger and brighter, you can use color to show 2 different light sources. For me light is a challenge so I recommend to start with one light source and if you feel like you have a good strong hold on one light source then you can start playing with 2 or etc. sources of light because light is difficult and it is what creates value in a piece. But these are just suggestions.
With value it all depends on the lighting, the direction of it and the amount. When you do values it can really help your piece have more dimension and pop out more from the page. But I believe the value is the biggest thing you may want to work on if you want to do more of a naturalistic approach with your art. With value you need peak highlights,highlights, mid tones and shadows and darker shadows and each one depends on light, where they hit the form it depends on which direction the light hits and the amount of each shade depends on the amount of light that is striking the form. So I believe value will add so much dimension to your piece, but it is nice that you have added cast and form shadows. But more value can help with perspective and figure foreshortening.

You have done well with color but don't be afraid to explore totally wacky colors like reds,blues and yellows to add to skins because skin has a variety of colors that we don't even realize. With Caucasian skin it has warmth and I am happy you added that but don't shy away from colors that seem like they would not be in skin, because in nature things are so many colors and the secret is just knowing how to mix them well and get the effect you want.

Your texture is so great nice movement and it makes the piece stand out so much. I like the hair but I suggest if you play around with the values then the viewer will be able to see all those wonderful strains you put into the hair.

Keep up the good work these are some suggest you can use to add to your original style again I love the way you draw and I hope this helped you out.

If you would like to go for a more naturalistic or realistic approach to art then these tutorials are good

Ok! First of all.. I'm very sorry to say something only now... ;__; I've just discovered that little button that allows me to keep this message AFTER I reply to it... I took so long to reply because since this critique has a very big amount of usefull information I didn't want to lost it. But now I figure it out. xD It took me a long time.

Anyway...
Thank you sooo much! This "I really like your unique sense of style and the way you do art, you have a signature style and I admire that because on this site almost everyone art looks the same and yours stand out and I love that; nice breath of fresh air. Your lines are very vibrant and has a nice rhythm and movement to it." totaly made my day now! *u*

Yes I think the parts I have more difficulties with it is indeed the light and ... the hands! x'D LOL
But this really helps me a lot. I don't even know how to thank you! *u*
It was something like this I was expecting from people when they commented on my works, because it helps me to grow. So, thank you so much. :glomp:

I love her expression most. Her lips and eyes are very well done, even for a sketch (:

What kind of pens do you use? is it a specific brand, or just whatever you find?

I was just wondering, I use black sharpie pens usually, but I can never find any good thinner ones to use

Well, for my detailed works, were I draw each line of hair I use this one [link]
It's waterproof and cheap. So... for me, it's perfect. :meow: For sketchy stuff I prefer ball pen because it's much easier to draw the shadows with them. Sharpie pens are more complicated to shade. :) but for detailed work they are awesome.

Ooh, alright. Thanks so much!

I don't use ball pens often, and my only problem with sharpie pens is they tend to smear easily..;-; But thankyou :D I'll look for one similar to that

You're welcome! ^^ Yeah... I used to smear it easily, but with those very thin pens it doesn't smear that easily. :3 they dry pretty fast so it's ok. :3
