The Girl Without Hands by PierluigiAbbondanza The Girl Without Hands by PierluigiAbbondanza
This is a piece I created for the Fairy Tales Re-Imagined competition which took place on CGHub ([link])

I twisted the fairytale of the poor and innocent "girl without hands".

I think she can easily survive with no hands now... :)

Made in Painter 12

First congratulation for this picture, it's a very nice work =)

First about the composition
You have made the choice of a vertical frame with respect for the rule of third for the character size and position. It's a good choice, perhaps a little bit static but it works very well for a kind of portrait.
When I analysed a little bit where I look in the picture, I clearly see that all the attention is about the face and the interaction with the cigar and the small angel. This area is a little bit small, I would have like to see an other element on the left bottom side of the picture to create a proper balance with the main area of interest.
You have a made a great background with large holes created by a firearm, I'm a little bit surprised to not see the girl with a weapon, it would have create a relation between the character and its environment.

About the technique
You have made the choice of a paint like rendering, a little bit raw, it's nice and don't pose problems since the main area of interest is properly refined.
The colour scheme is good to achieve a good contrast between the character and the environment. But here I see a small point of improvement with the fire used for lighting the cigar, it's a shame to have choice the same colour than the helmet, I would have personally chosen an other colour, perhaps something in the green area.
The anatomy of the character is quite good, but I'm afraid that the left arm is too short compare to the right.

At the global it's a very nice work, I think there is room for improvement but the picture works and don't look like in progress even with the choice of a little bit raw rendering.

Congratulations =)

Wonderful work. Loving the hot color scheme and the brushwork too. Keep up the good work mate. :)

P.S. - Little more detailing would not hurt. Just a thought :)
