I think that this work is an amazing piece of art, but since this is a critique I will go through each of the points I want to talk abo...

Hello everyone, I'm Kate ^^
I'm 16 years old and a person who loves art a lot.
I mostly draw portraits at the moment, but vary those from time to time.
I do not accept commissions at the moment not requests, art trades or anything like that.
Since I am in my last year of school I am quite busy with exams and stuff so I am not DA as much anymore, but i still come on here and upload drawings accasionally.
Hope you will enjoy my artwork. ^^
I don't even know where to start off to be honest.
I don't remember if I said anything about drawing portrait and getting into more realistic stuff in my previous journals, but just to be safe I'll type it here aswell.
The whole of 2013 has been a year of inspirations for me. I have found out about many new artists, writers and just normal people in general that I have met during the year. They all have inspired me to draw various works aside from Winx, especially my art teacher. I am so thankful to him because that man was probably the person who triggered that love for portraits in me as soon as we started doing human form in our class last year.
I have been practising a lot with my traditional art and when I picked up my tablet for the first time in like half a year I though it would take me ages to get used to it again, but oh boy I was wrong. in fact it took me about 30 minutes maximum to remember everything again. I noticed that I started drawing much faster and details didn't seem much of a massive problem anymore because before I always used to struggle with them.
I tried drawing a realistic portrait, digitally for the first time in my life and I was very proud of how it came out. Obviously it was quite rough and brush strokes could be seen, but not because I didn't know how to blend it all, it's just because I felt like I wanted to leave it like that.
In the past year I learned that things don't have to be perfectly drawn and you don't have to copy someone face on the canvas just like it is. You have to make the piece feel like it's yours, like it's something you've done, and weirdly like it's your own child that you have created because the truth is that in fact it is a child that you should treasure.
Sometimes your brush strokes might make the piece look better rather than worse.
All of this made me think, was standard winx style really something I wanted to continue drawing?? Or was it really something that I found interesting to draw? Well I found my answer and sadly it's a negative one, it's a one simple word "no".
 Why you ask. Well just because everyone changes and their likes change aswell. I'm not saying I don't like winx , it's just something I don't enjoy drawing as much anymore, but that doesn't mean I will just stop everything here.
This only means that I will keep on moving forward and search for things that I like drawing more. I will discover a lot of other artists and other styles. I will discover and meet other people.
Don't worry I'm not leaving DA this is just a journal post where I kind of wanted to express how I feel and maybe help others who are in the same situation as me.
One more thing I'll say is don't be afraid to change what you draw, how you draw, where you draw. Don't be afraid to change yourself because after all you have one life and you have to use every opportunity you can to make everything the best memory, not something you will regret looking back at. ^^
