I LOVE THIS ARTWORK!! okay, now that we have that out of the way, I can start describing why. It's the feeling, the very sharp and contrasting black and white body paint on the exposed skintone. It gives it a bit of a pained look, and really highlights the posing which is also fabulous. The twisted body and hand pushing off gives it a feeling of new beginnings and hope, but only barely so which is exactly what we would want.
Was the facepaint added afterwards? I ask this because one of the contours on the neck seems a bit uncanny for being drawn on the real body. Either way, this is still amazing work. Keep it up!
