Would it be tacky of me to point out that her torso is kinda flat? I mean, its weird because the rest of her feels fully three dimensional. Did you just call it a day without finishing the shading on her skin?
Personally from what I've seen from this artist, the affect is not aimed for complete realism but borders on a mix of stylized realism with a dash of video game-like inspired accents. I feel that this artist did a wonderful job with creating this lovely piece and I adore that the artwork has such a unique, memorable, lair to it.
I think you missed an "f" in flair. Unless "lair" has some other definition I'm not aware of.
I"m not criticizing the overall style. If you look at her skin, you can see where it is partially shaded and where other parts are just flat color. You can also see lines in those areas, which doesn't fit with the rest of the work.
I can understand if the artist posted it unfinished. That's pretty much all I do. I was just wondering whether that was the case or whether it was intentional or not.
No, the 'f' missing in 'flair' was a minor typo-- my apologies.
In the regards to the artwork: I've seen this artist use the same style when shading skin on a majority of their work. As stated previously, I don't think the artist means to create a completely realistic piece and opts out of heavily shading certain areas to achieve this desired effect.
I regret if I misunderstood the context of your reply, but from my prospective by saying 'Did you just call it a day without finishing the shading on her skin?' implied some negative tones which might be considered offensive to the artist’s level of discernment.
