New Born by lpeters New Born by lpeters
This piece was painted for the "New Born" competition at Conceptart.org.
I was aiming for it to look as though she was shedding something similar to old snake skin, so hopefully it does.

Wow what an interesting piece of art! The perspective, the expression of the woman and the many little details make this image a high quality work.
The idea that she was shedding her old "snake skin" is quite original!
I'm not sure how shedded snake skin looks like but with your description I believe that she's really doing this.^^
Otherwise I thought it might be a cloak made out of silk.

Anyway I think you did perfect on the face symmetry but the hair could get some more light and shadow shades.
Also I miss some details in the dress. Right now the dress is fine with the design but it still looks a bit "hard". As if it wouldn't be tissue. Maybe you could add there some kind of texture.

That's it.^^ Excellent work and keep it up! :D

Thought of snake right when I saw it, not reading the description. So, I guess, you fully succeeded :)

I swear everytime i go on this sight I am not prepared for the intensity of emotions that all these works of art make me feel. GAH!! anyways love the concept and at first didn't know she was shedding skin but got the idea something was up with the snake vibe you have goin. then of course figured it out. and that's when the wow factor settled in. lol.
