I like the light colors and the dynamic movement around her, while her pose is so very static.
Also great work on the dress. :>

Very beautiful. It reminds me of the early 20th century illustrators in the "golden age".

I really enjoy this one. The style is nice and the colors are muted well. The only dislike I have is the color of the ground. That brown color kinda reminds me of bird poo. I live in the country so thats probably why I think that.

Regardless it is a good piece ;) You should be proud

This is really good. This is going to sound weird, but. My nickname is Goose, and when I had my long hair, I looked just like the girl in your painting. Thats all I wanted to say. And its really amazing, and you are an amazing artist.

I actually found them at a local craft supply store. If you can't find them there then you can always experiment with different types of ink pens until you find one that you really like. I use micron pens simply because they do not bleed when I paint over them.

I really like this one - it conveys a lot of what the fairy tale is about, in the way that she's betrayed and alone with just the geese. I haven't even read that story in years and I remembered it just looking at this! :D
