an arab woman - myself as the reference (repost)

HI GUYS:)
so this is a self portrait that could be interpreted in a few different ways. i was going to do a series with myself as the subject dressed as different characters... needless to say i only completed the one portrait.
i posted this along with a few other drawings a couple of weeks ago but i decided to post it by itself to hear comments/feedback.
feel free to comment anything at all!!!!

This is great, the eyes are very realistic and the folds in the clothing look really nice!

Agree with Brooke, Shame that a religion needs to cover up beauty..really don't understand why. Artwork is great Cara.

Re: an arab woman - myself as the reference (repost)

Re: an arab woman - myself as the reference (repost)

I agree with the others, very nicely done. I can see this on a larger scale in a rectangular format that really focuses on the eyes. There is a New Mexico based artist named Dino Cornay who did a piece called "Memerized" where he adds an element of color. I've thought about a subtle coloring of the iris, something that really draws the viewers eyes. Steve McCurry's photo "The Afghan Girl", I find myself drawn to her green eyes. I think it would be neat to do a series of this drawing where you "age" yourself, progressively adding wrinkles and skin texture with each drawing. Or a series that conveys different emotions/mind sets with only the eyes.
