    I love the layering of colors, and just the overall palette of colors you used. They really add to the piece and make it anything BUT a typical Halloween piece.

    So I feel comfortable in saying that this is probably by far the sexiest piece you've produced. Sexiest as in it's by far your strongest piece to date.

    Let's break this festive piece down a bit. First off, I really like the fact that you really had fun with this piece. It's got a whimsical nature to it with the way you chose to position the girl as well as the random accessories you've got in there. I'm especially a huge fan of the fact that you made her gorgeous hair spread out as if it were a blanket or a sheet. It's engulfing part of the bed and with the waves in it, it looks like a sea. I seriously cannot stress how much I love that. I also really love the fact that, proportionally, she's spot on. I especially love how your work always goes more towards that realistic side of things, and that witch outfit is rather cute with those textures and design. However, it's the eyes that I find myself going to right after the hair and before the dress. Those eyes are hauntingly gorgeous. I can't stress enough how important I find eyes to be in a good piece, and these eyes are especially captivating.

    So I could spend far more time than desired talking about the girl and how beautifully she's been drawn, but let's talk about this background. You went for something far more different than normal, and it paid off completely. I love the candy that is just scattered everywhere and going with something like Nerds all over the place, I can only imagine how time consuming it must of been to draw all of that coming out of several of the pumpkins. Which, by the way, I really love. I also really appreciate how you made each of the pumpkins different, and with the bandages on one and the witches hat upon another, it looks as if even the pumpkins themselves are getting into the festive spirit of everything. Then there's the cats. Hooray for adding cats! The only thing i can really say is the white one's eyes scare me, but I sort of like that because it gets into the spirit of the whole piece itself. Ultimately, they're well drawn and considering the size, they look rather good too. It's sort of surprising how many artists are great at drawing people, but can draw some really poor cats and you did a good job with them!

    Seriously, I can talk more about this piece, since I didn't cover the curtains either, but I don't need to say anymore. It's a gorgeous looking Halloween piece and I'm extremely impressed that not only were you able to get this completed in such a short period of time, but by the level your work has increased. You get more and more talented with each piece. I should try to get your autograph before you become famous. Fantastic work!

    So nice! I really love the whole composition, especially the position of the girl, with that beautiful hair that spread around her head.The colors are wonderful, they give the impression of thousand bright lights and shadows, as if the image was reflected by a kaleidoscope. Works featuring Halloween are usually dark, but this is not, the girl and the pumpkins are so luminous! And still there is the mood of the night of spirits, perhaps due to the presence of pumpkins, perhaps for the dark curtains of the background that seem to hide something. Wonderful work!

    The kitty on top of the pumpkin is so cute. : ) Her hair kind of merges with the color of the floor? (not sure if the floor is orange or her hair is spread out all over the floor) Are her arms underneath the purple fabric? They just seem to disappear.
