Marta! This is fantastic. The colors and textures are wonderful. Your hard work paid off. The box and hands are particualrly good. the face bothers me a little, though--her head looks a little "disconnected" from her neck, the the lighting doesn't seem right on her face... something about the shadows on her nose is off. Minor points, though. Overall this is a very strong beautiful painting... it clearly shows how much technical skill you've gained.

Thank you so much for your response everyone~! Wooh, now replying will take a while (I think I'll have to split it into two replies), but here goes:

Scorned1: Thank you very much!

Kamil: Thanks <3

Blooddragon_PL: Thanks!

Damselfly: Thank you and no problem

xric7: Thank you Thitipon, it means a lot

dawis: Thanks! I'm glad you noticed, the light took me so so much time to get right...

KPetrasko: Thank you, I'm glad you liked the piece...

AIR: Thanks! I'll be sure to look into your gallery.

jsandoval: No problem, thank YOU!

Zhaan: Thanks a lot THe next one will be looking classical as well, hehe

tigerzi: Thank you, it really means a lot coming from you. <3

lildragon: I already thanked you but hell, thanks again =)

Nonie: UH oh no, you noticed! xD That's one tiny bug I simply FORGOT to fix, my mom has mentioned it a few days before finishing the painting. Damn :(

ei-en: Thanks Borja

AndyH: Wow, thanks, I treat it as a huge compliment, I'm an huge fan of the 3d scene here at CGtalk.

HappyCalaveras: Thank you. I was trying my best.

niva: Thanks, I am really really concentrating on improving nowadays, so that's really encouraging. As for the gap, hmh, I guess that after working on something for too long, I just tend to get "mistake-blind".

jpedro: Thankies

digital-bobert: Thanks Bobby, it means a lot, I am your fan after all

Gaffer: Aw, thank you

icharin: Thank you. the centre part of the picture - the hands and the box, were my main focal points, so I think the most of my attention went just there.

George: Oh you got me scared for a minute there. I am really glad you liked it, both when it comes to the form and merit!

Artaholic: Yes, indeed. I still love to read myths (even though I know the most of them by heart), but they are hiding such immense amount of inspiration, that it's just so hard to put them down...

Flyingjay: I am really glad you found it useful, thank you!

SeifoSid: Hahah, I am hearing this a lot lately, in the next work I promise to do a walkthrough for the hands. :3

Shreya: Your kind words mean so much to me. <3 I am really admiring what you do yourself and those compliments I take with the deepest respect. Very encouraging to work more :P

EhsanD: THANKS! =)

Samuraikuroi: Dzien Dobry :P And thank you!

Cris-Palomino: Thank you so much =)

waheednasir: Thank you, it means so so so much. I love your art, which you already know, when can we expect a new painting?

VishyP: Thank you, I'm glad you like it.

yinako: Uhm, it's so hard to say.. but I would say around 90 hours perhaps? It was all spread along 1,5 month. It took so much mainly because I took much time to plan the picture and experiment a LOT.

warpy: Thanks! =)

gilmon: oh no, you noticed too. I am aware of the bug, I totally should go on and fix it, but right now I just cannot force myself to open Photoshop >_<

anouk: Dziekuje bardzo

raufaamir: Thank you!

watermage: Thank you so much for your kind words. They are truly appreciated.

Baybeestar: Hm I think you might be right. As I wanted the centerpiece to be the most captivating element of the picture, I suppose I have given it the most attention when painting.

derbyQsalano: hehe no problem, thank you for the crit...

BGHart: Thank you so much Britta, it means a lot. <3

CyborgJA: thanks a bunch =)

mikeldi: Thank you, I'm glad you found it helpful

Jenela: Ohh the piece tested my patience quite often. If it was not for the support I have gotten from my family, I am quite sure I would just drop it halfway. :[

Leo: :O!! THanks for visiting, I'm glad you like it =)

Jose-Pardo: thank you very much!

Lauren: Thanks for dropping by. Hm I will have to look into the shadows I believe... Either way thank you for the compliments and crits. When can we see some new stuff by you btw?

Sirielle: Thank you so much, it means a lot. Pozdrawiam serdecznie!

Klicek: Thanks mate :P THe hands were a lot of hard work.
