Time will not heal all of your pain
I cannot wait for it all to come crashing
Down on your face, ripping your veins out
Your insides win and kill you from within

My favorite thing about this picture is the directional lines you have sweeping through the piece, giving it movement. Because of these sweeping lines, the composition never gets stagnant - I never find my eye getting stuck in any one place here. Something I find very interesting about this piece is that, while managing to keep it relatively monochromatic, you still have color variety that keeps it lively (namely the red tint you incorporated into the jawline). The textures in this piece are also rather varied, which is particularly important in a monochromatic piece. Since there are so many different kinds of textures, it never gets boring.

I'll note that the contrast in this picture is just perfect - it's what makes this piece really stand out. This brings me to the veil on the face, which I really like since it's relatively abstracted - it doesn't stick too closely to the face, but it floats outward. I think it's interesting how you chose to make the veil white as opposed to black, it seems almost symbolic in the way you presented it: it's not suffocating, but it lifts upward as if it's a symbol of trust or vision (but I could be wrong there, as I usually am).

In any case, I can't think of anything that needs to be improved upon here. It's pleasantly whimsical and bold.
What do you think?
