Raven Witch by Celairen Raven Witch by Celairen
This is my birthday gift for :iconliliaosipova: and :iconsanguinemoonwolf:! Happy Birthday to you! I hope, you like it :heart:

I was inspired by the 'Black Swan' movie. I try to make a similar intensive make-up and give it this dark feeling of self destruction. Not really a good birthday theme ;)
I think the raven composition is not really good. I was so anxious to make the face look perfect and the model as a whole, that I have not thought much about it.
And the crow on her hand..I know, even if I made her smoother and try to blend it good with the background, it's not perfect. But I love this special crow, because of the amazing feathers.. So I decided I had to stay her like she is now.
First try was not really full of colors, but I loved how her face looks there..same problem like the composition thing. I decide to make it more blue, because it's for me the color of mystic and dark beauty. And I like the contrast of the dark red make-up and the blue tones and the black parts. I think I could have made the smoke better, too. In the grey version, it looks fine, but so..hm, not so great :grump: I just think, perfect lightning is a other thing than that you can see here, but I try my best ;)

You're giving yourself a lot of critique, but I still think this piece of art is pretty amazing :) You probably just need some work on the details.

I think this is wonderful!
But to me, one finger looks very bright and should maybe be better off slighly darker, but that's just my opinion :) Nevertheless, I think you did a great job in catching the dark atmosphere, and the pic is just lovely to look at :heart: Great job!
