Natura said...

Great expression!

Caroline said...

Gosh I'd be surprised if my head had come off too! tee hee...

gudbrandsdottir said...

I agree with the others, very nice eyes, kind of sad-surprice in them

Tony Sarrecchia said...

I was thinking the same thing Caroline said...'hey, where'd my body go?'

Great illo.

Queen Tut said...

I am not going to tell you where her body is. thats a surprise!

Penguin said...

Summer time cowgirl, eh? Full time country bumpkin here. I like the illustration. What'd you use to color it?

carla said...

It seems as if you've caught both emotions in this illo! Those huge green eyes are amazingly expressive, even without the help of the eybrows. I really like the blues and greens you've used with the red mouth as a nice accent.

ValGalArt said...

love the eyes and lips!

ratlion said...

Totally agree with Carla and...the eyes do work even without the help of the eyebrows! Nice work!

Holly said...

Wow! Those eyes are fantastic! Great detail. Cheers!

Queen Tut said...

Now I am a bit surprised at all the comments this illo is getting! Thank you all so much for taking the time to comment!

To answer Penguin I use Adobe Illustrator and a wacom tablet to draw up my pencil sketches.

I hope to post another pose of her looking surprised. This time with a body! Lol

This has a real Pop Art feeling to it. I really like this girl!

Isa said...

Is she watching any vampire? The great moon and the face terrified of the woman... Misterious and beautiful illo

Rachelle said...

It is a fine line and you've captured it!

Aravis said...

I agree with what's been said. The eyes and lips really capture the feeling. Love the hair!

chan wah said...

Very good face expression and colors.

Jaimie said...

Lovely as always! I have never used a tablet but I'm hoping to get on for Christmas and can't wait to try it.

My guess would be it's not a good surprise. I love how you captured her sadness as well as her surprise. Nicely done.

Natura said...

Very expressive eyes!
