To Tear Me Apart by MarieStars To Tear Me Apart by MarieStars
First time trying pastel! I really enjoyed it, but I'm not very happy with the result. 
I hope you'll like it anyway!

This is amazing...everything from the expression on her face to the clawing hands makes you feel.  Just stunning...

She looks mildly distraught... Once again, very expressive, the flurried line work adds to that sense of turmoil.

This is terrifying.  I love it.  If I stare to long, I know for sure I won't be able to sleep tonight.

Love the tones, the expression, the barest hint of red. Beautiful portrayal of anguish. :heart: Did you use toned paper? You got a really nice, stark white out of it.

Do I spot a little blue and brwonish red in there? Even if it's just my perception, the piece just looks so plastic, as if she stood before me. Great job here :)

The black paper looks a little bit blood, and yes I add red and brown pastel to it! Thank you!

Oh you don't have to do that! It's fine if you do though haha I'm glad I could help you out, and as far as I'm concerned I think I got a good deal too, I think you are a great artist!

Oh and let me know if you are still wanting/trying to do commissions in the future. I don't have a lot of watchers or anything, but maybe I could make a journal or something about you to help spread the word. It might help.
