I find the simplicity in this very appealing. Nicely done....and titled. :wink: Image

It has a spooky feel to it,like something is watching her from the woods.

I really like how you make that girl look somehow paranoid. It seems like the viewer would be her stalker or something. Really nice atmosphere and I totally agree with thegemsculptor.

I guess it's the way we all look at things differently. Image I see the "light" in the darkness vs. seeing the "darkness" in the light... So this isn't 'spooky' to me. Perhaps a 'little red hood' would have added some "spooky" for me.Image
But please leave this one as is. I believe it shows real talent.Image

The contrast and simplicity is beautiful. There's a great sense of... intimacy, for lack of a better word--like you're looking in on something exclusive and private. Well done :)

thanks gary! :D i wil leave it as is...you are an positive artist..seeing the light in the dark ,instead of vice versa.. :wink: little red riding hood in the woods..hmm spooky.. mysterious maybe too?? i have an question..i have trouble painting or drawing far or near objects..foreshortning"" i think, the artists call it. i "feel"" how it must be done...but its different actually drawing or painting it. like for example. a man who sits with his leg bent...its like my eyes tells me one story and my brain, another. keep up the good work!!
