Default Gothic Beauty Entry

I didn't get to finish it in time as I kept changing my mind on the ideas. I would love it if anyone could give feedback. I'm getting the idea that my stuff must stink. No one ever offers up any criticism.

Awards Showcase

Default

Hi i will try to give some constructive critique if you wish.

But first a question ... do you consider this piece as done/final or is it a Work in Progress?

The first thing i've noticed, when looking at it, is that the angle of the person and the mirror
is not matching well ... like they are two diffrent persons. But not one person that is old but looking
young in the mirror.

As sketch your piece is good but it lacks some details and light/shadow and saturation = contrast.

The idea is good.

I am not a good 2d artist but i hope my critique is helping anyhow.

I did a quick mockup of what i mean

Thanks,
It wasn't finished, but I was having trouble with this work. I recently got back to art afters years of putting focus elsewhere. I have been frustrated by the rustiness. I have forgotten a lot of the basics, IE (PERSPECTIVE) so it is very helpful to get other perspectives what I'm missing to kick my butt a bit. I'm also having trouble figuring the best way to master digital painting. I have been using painter. But haven't figured a rhythm out yet. Thanks again, I will apply the tips. I intend to finish this even though the Gothic beauty contest is over.

Default fixed some more but not done yet

I want the image to read as a mirror image, but the roses wilting doesn't match so I will have to redo them again. I put some more detail in. I tried to fix position of corpse for better perspective. Still have some work to do.
