Cant See Tears In The Rain by NuraNooni Cant See Tears In The Rain by NuraNooni
I wanted to do a really emotive, but not happy, portrait. So I came up with this totally original girl crying in the rain, and came up with the totally clever title "Can't See Tears In The Rain".... In case you didn't catch it, that was sarcasm. I hope this looks okay...

You have done a brilliant job using perspective, color and texture to really capture the emotion you set out to do. Wonderful job and moving piece.

Very beautiful dear dark and gloomy. This is definatey emotive. Everytime I've cried in the rain I always thought about that. "I'm glad no one can see I'm crying" :cry:

Love your use of lighting in this piece - also a lovely vertically orientated composition. Reminds me of a character called Fuchsia in a book series called "Gormenghast". She also says a similar line that you can't see her tears in the rain. The bbc made a good series of it too. Great painting all round :)

Hm, I think I'll look that series up, never heard of it. And yes, thank you for acknowledging the vertical composition! I don't think people use it enough. It always square or a big long landscape orientation.

The lantern light is great! And I don't think the background needs to be more detailed; it would take focus away from the character, and rain makes things blurry anyway.

Just one thing I noticed is the light on the bottom of her right forearm (left from our point of view) seems a little bright. The lantern light wouldn't shine directly on it, but would reflect off her upper arm and be a bit dimmer. More like what you did with her other arm would be good :)

Excellent title and concept.
The girl's painted exceptionally well, but the backgrounds seems less detailed and more washed. You might want to fix that in future paintings.
