Really nice job. The impact and the technique of it is magnifficent. I have seen this picture a few times but this one is the dark version of it.
My favourite part of the drawing is her eyes. It is just gazing at you and it is the eyes that makes this drawing so reallistic, really well done. My least favourite is her wrists. I'm not quite sure why, but something is weird. I haven't quite worked it out yet. But this is only a minor thing.
Overall this drawing is really well done, deffinately going to check out your gallery. Keep up the good work.

You did a beautiful job with this!
Her face is so realistic, I keep waiting for her to blink. I also love the textures and shading you did, particularly around the eyes.
The overall picture just catches your eye and makes you stop to take it all in.
Lots of emotion in this piece!
One thing I would mention, is that her hands seem a little off to me. I would say the wrists are a little too wide. Wrists are usually one of the narrowest part of ones body, so maybe a little more taper into the wrists.
Also I think her fingers need to be longer in proportion to the rest of her hands, and I would maybe make her thumbs more visible. As of now you can't really tell where they're at.
But those are just some nit-picky things. Your line work and detail in the hands is really well done and very realistic.
I would have to say her eyes are my favorite part. They're so alive, and you can practically feel them staring into you!
Fantastic work!

The way this characters looks at you is quite impressive, feels even like the eyes carry a burden or something, well done.

luv the eyes & face;
 especially as the face isn't the usual none blemished, hollywood, photoshopped that we're normally bombarded with;
 refreshing to see more of a human face
