I looked at each one for a while and I really think 3 is the best. I feel like I'm actually "in the scene", rather than just looking at it.

I'd say the second one but I didn't like the lighting very much. I think thats just my personal preference though. I liked the first one but there wasn't the effect of the light so no. I didn't like the 3rd one because the blue overcast shadow thing; what you wanna call it, make the light effect look terrible. And I just didn't like the last one.

So i chose the second one. :/

I'm voting for number 1, I think her red hair and gold eyes are very nicely contrasted by the green, but I would like to add that the more intense contrast of the fourth one is nice as well.

Number four is a version that fits with the style the painting is in. I like it better than some of the softer versions because she does look deadly there. I don't like the third version because she looks too... well, it's version two with a purpley-grey filter. I don't know, to me it just drains away her beauty.

I like number four but for an artistic piece about beauty probably not. It looks like a detailed panel in a comic book. (Which isn't bad, but not for a stand-alone, I guess...)

Number two had my first reaction be: what is she made of, wax? Because it looks so. So glossy. Her eyes are straddling the fine line of being brought out more and looking exactly like the background. Which makes me look at them more. And then the background... Her hair looks shiny. It feels like she is about to walk into fire and is giving you a backwards glance. After I stare at it for ten seconds I'm liking it more and more.

When I first compared all three I immediately like number one best. I see all the detail, it's not too bright or dark, or contrasty and she is beautiful. After staring ten seconds at number two they become a very close call and I can't decide which one to pick. If I were posting I'd pick number one only because I stick very close to the rule-book and dramatic lighting scares me.

Io direi la 4, anche se come luce la 2 è molto più faigah. :0

I have a "Vivid color" fetish. D8 So I touched myself over 1. But then felt guilty for 4. v.V

I say 3. The dark tones really bring out her eyes and also the dark makes it more edgy. And in this picture, she definitely looks edgy! :D

Btw, they are all absolutely stunning. ^_^

I can't really chose between n° 2 and 4. I think that the coloring is more beautiful in the 2nd one ( the arm seems a bit flat in the 4th one), but i like the hair, eyes and especially the lips better in the 4th one because they catch the eye more. But overall, I would say that I prefer the 2nd one.

For me number 2 is better, the lighting is just so much better. The picture comes across as more intense

I like 2 the best for it's realistic lighting, but I like 3 for a more otherworldly lighting :nod:

The third one is my favorite, even though I do not like the heavy purple tones. The reason I like it so much is because the dark overlay helps one see all the detail that the brighter versions do not show as well, even though two is just as finished as 3 is.

However, 1 and 4 do not feel done to me. Though they are obviously finished, there is still something flat about them. It could just be the extra highlights and light sources you added to 2 and 3.

Whichever you choose, they are all very well done, and gorgeous. Wonderful artwork. :love:

I like 1 and 2, can't decide, they're both so beautiful ♥ The second one has awesome lighting, but the first one gives a stronger expression... or something.

I like the hair in the fourth one best, but her skin seems a bit overexposed. Overall, I like the second one best ^__^

i choose either 2 or 3. her eyes are glaring in a more mysterios way in those.
and 3 well, perhaps fits the title a bit better - because the skin color is a bit more 'unalive' and thus associated with death a bit better. but 2 is perfectly LOOOVEEEELLLYYY as the picture itself without any extra-thinking :heart:

^^ :hug: it's always a pleasure to have share thoughts with you!

btw i see 4 is winning but imo it's the least deep and lively from all. because MY screen+Firefox shows me dark hair and too light skin.nearly no midtones i can hardly see the shades on her cheek-bones. i can guess them in fact ;) but well :shrug: perhaps it's the screen. i can't be sure.
