Wow! She is amazing...One of the best I have seen. Her anatomy is so richly detailed, the colors perfect. I really love her toad stool as well.

This one was a really early peice and I didnt see any womanly fairys at the time. They were more like pretty teens. The toadstool was fun! I even added the dark gills underneath.

For being one of your early pieces (well for that matter even if you just made it) it is just gorgeous. It kind of reminds me of the fairies by Brian Froud.

I am a huge fan of your dolls, but I don't really like this one. I like the amethyst and I love the mushroom pedestal, but I feel like this lady looks almost malicious. Her mouth is small and a bit harsh, I think I would prefer fuller lips and rounder cheeks. She has a fuller body than usual but I think maybe if the shadow under her breasts was less deep it would give a more generous impression. I also thought maybe the skin should have more of a pinkish tone, a little less sallow. I love her feet though =)

yeah she has a very deep ribs line that looks odd. The torso proportions are short. I didnt use referance ,but I wanted a rubenesque look. I wasnt really sucessful there.

Your bound to not like evry single one,but if I made some of those changes she would be so common. The risks I take in my work is why its so differnt from others.
I particualy chose ivory instead of pink for her skin.

I thought she was a little blobby and not as zaftig as I had in mind. I really wanted to show a generous body.

What I think draws me to your work is that your fairies and such aren't beautiful in the classic sense, but almost grotesque. Hopefully that's not an insult to you but I do get tired of stereotypical beauty.

No it doesnt insult me. I know what you mean. its hard not to be pulled into that though because its so instant grat rewarded. I happen to like the handsome features over the hottie look.

I have to agree with those above, the face looks depraved and older...almost sallow.
I feel for 'fertility' that she could use a little more meat on her, especially around her belly and hips. But otherwise, gorgeous job!! Your use of anatomy and color is very inspiring and you did an amazing job on the mushroom seat -wow!

Or maybe I just needed to get better at doing faces!? I thought she looked like an english woman.

I can't really point out where you'd need to improve on faces...sometimes they look a little harsh or even starved, too skeletal...but I've assumed that that was just your own style, you know?

I see the English Woman bit in her face.:)

I started out inspired by Victorian ideas of beauty. but then I shifted to more modelesque. Victorian ladies have small mouths and large defined grecian noses.
Milla Jovavitch's face inspires me alot. She has a predatory harsh lean look. I probably should add more soft roundness to the cheeks and more rounded jaw. The english have that weak jaw thing and I think its why she looks english.

My husband and I both have high cheekbones. His are like you could slice bread with!
I actauly have been thinking how to change the style of my faces in order to get away from the similarity between Marinas dolls and mine. But I was thinking of the other way more lean and more fae/animalistic.
