Coiffure des Chiens Danseurs by rebelakemi Coiffure des Chiens Danseurs by rebelakemi
This is a painting of my friend, Jessica. I didn't enhance her eyes, she actually have naturally long eyelashes!!! I thought it would be funny to paint dogs dancing around her head (mainly because my friends joke about me saying that I only think of three things: Dogs, Kung Fu and MJ). The sheltie and the aussie are my dogs. I tried to paint her dog on the right, but I didn't have a picture.

This is a great piece of work. I love your originality and imagination. The warm background blends in with the portrait and I like the way you choose your colours. The dogs pouncing around her head is very cute and realistic.
You have enhanced shadows, thus creating this portrait to become much more lively, especially with the detailed figures and colours.

However, (oh no) to me, her head seems to be a bit big, but I have no idea if you did this on purpose. Although the details on her face is very vivid, her smile does not look the way it should be, but you still achieve kudos for the amazing effort.

Overall, I will rate it at about 4.3 stars, and I hope you find this critique fair.

It's definitely an interesting piece of work. I like it for the most part, but much like Rofl190 said, the proportion of the head/hand to the remainder of the body shown seems out of sync. It might just be the level of detail (not) shown for the shoulders & neck, but that is a distracting touch. Worth keeping, though. Keep up the good work!

I think its very adorable. The dogs really make the painting more exciting and it gives Jessica a lot of character. However, I think if you're doing a portrait of someone else, it should be more personal to them and not as much of you. If she thinks of dogs a lot and loves dogs a lot, this painting would fit well, but because it's you who "thinks of dogs" it should be a self portrait.
Overall though, without knowing whos thinking of what, i think the circus-like dogs really give this portrait a lot of personality.
