I enjoy the way you paint her dress, it seems so real *-*
Her face is flawless she's that kind of girl which we can not dispose once seen ...

I don't know how to say it otherwise, I'm not very good in English but that I'm actually sure is that she's stunning an that you are on e of my favorite digital painter henceforth :D

Good attempt, especially with the more complex lighting, but you've got the surface anatomy of her neck and back rather wrong. The spine's wrongly aligned and you've placed C7 a whole vertebral level too low. You've also made some anatomical mistakes with the sternocleidomastoid and the trapezoid muscles, but, anyway, you're not asking for critique so I won't take that any further.

I wonder if you still think the same after looking at the photo :P To be honest, I don't think there is anything anatomically wrong with this picture.

I saw the photo before I posted a comment. :) I am a final year medical student and anatomy is what I did for two years, so I notice subtleties. I stand by what I said about the vertebral representation in the photo and the muscles.

So you're saying there is a big difference between the back in the drawing and the photo?
Reply
:iconexillior:
Exillior Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Not a big difference, no. Well, I don't expect it to be a big difference to somebody who's not working on anatomy.

But yes, the surface anatomy is significantly different between the two - I was referring mostly to the neck, though. If you look at the way the light falls, it's different in the painting and the photo - that's the muscles. And the embossments along the spine are also different. I know the level at which the vertebra prominens (the bulge at the base of the neck) is, and it's distinctly at the wrong level in the painting. Notice also that the neck in the photo is an almost straight line along the dorsal aspect, from hairline to base of neck, while in the painting it's convex. It's a small difference and wouldn't have mattered if =Ninjatic had adapted the muscles and the bones accordingly, but as it is, it emphasises the wrong placement of the C7 vertebra in relation to the other vertebrae.

And to explain what I mean about the muscles, too (because I ended up going into detail about the bones) - the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) in the photo is straight (as a contracted muscle would be) whereas in the painting it's curved in an impossible way. :P I love the SCM, which is probably why it hits me this strongly.

A very gorgeous picture. The neck actually doesn't seem too long. Some people do have longer necks like that. :) The color and lighting really suits the title. ^_^
