To actually critique it...I would have to know what you were actually trying to do, but in my opinion it looks fabulous. The geometrical shapes and lines with their own values in them are really great. To me, I'd change nothing. It would make a fabulous wall piece. I'd like to see similar pieces with other colors, maybe more electrical, brighter richer colors.

To se mi libi moc. I tried to do a similar piece myself once before I really knew how to use watercolor.  But what you did is exactly the type of thing I was trying to do.

I know you probably do not understand Jane but I submitted this picture to my "featured Donators"  You said don't bother.   There is not much that I own in this world, but there is one thing that is mine, and as long as I treat it with respect, it will always be mine to give.  If I lose that respect, then it will no longer be worth giving.   I gave my word that anyone who contributes to helping me keep the the status of my newly acquired club, I would feature them in a special gallery.   Would others know that you said do not bother.  no, I don't believe they would.  And besides you do beautiful work and it belongs in my galleries. 

I would like to explain why I chose this picture from all the rest.  It is not the one I intended to show.  That was the one that always said Jane Beata to me when I looked at it.  but out of the corner of my eye, I saw this peeking out of a sub folder, and knew I want it for my galleries.    though this picture definitely says your name, it says something else.  It says Me.  Just earlier this day, I was lost and was trying to find something to hold on too that would lead me back.  So I watched one of the first feature films that I was in.   I was a stunt double and was required to preform a series of martial arts.  To me the gracefulness of Martial Arts is to dance gracefully and elegantly with precision in front of the camera or off.   As martial arts is an art form the same as dance, this picture speaks of the grace of the dance.  In that film, I wore a dress similar of this stile.  Similar I said.  The Cheongsam.  Which I wear nearly every day of my life.  Where the dress in your image shows eliganse and desire, so does the one I wore.  When I look at this picture, I see you, and I see what was beautiful to me, and has helped me remain who I am when other factors has sought to change that.   So as humbily and politely as possible, I am asking you to approve this request. politely as I possibly can, I am asking that you accept my request to exhibit this art piece in my galleries.

Dear Aura,

I did not say "Don't bother", I wrote "That's okay." I am not a native speaker, but those phrases have completely different meaning to me and the first one I never use, because it is simply not the way I communicate with people and I don't like the sound of it. Please, for future reference, do not misquote me like that.

Thank you for including my work within features, there is absolutely nothing I'd have against any group from DeviantArt to showcase my work - I accept any request. The only reason I wrote "That's okay." instead of linking you my work was that my help was provided without any agenda.

So, if you ever want to feature, showcase, anything - just send a request, I'll accept. No need to assume, speculate and make me write long replies to comments just to defend my place :)

I am glad you like the picture!

I'm a dancer (hiphop and ballet) and I can feel her energy... it's a blend to me of those two disciplines - grace with power. Very nice!

I love this combination of geometric shapes with the character.
I feel like a "freeze frame" on the movement that enables to observe the purity, the subtlety, the strength of the movement of the character.
The balance of the character is very interesting in this repository.
I have a paradoxical feeling with this creation. This makes me think of Schrödinger's cat.
I feel the movement and stopping at the same time. It is may be it "Float".;)
Great work, Jane!!!:clap:

This is just... really good. One of the best works of ballet series, I think. I like the face (!) and the body. Her legs and arms are tense and stripes and circles on the background give picture dynamic.
And I like, when on watercolour paintings pencil lines are visible, it looks so artistic : )

So Beautiful! I really love your choice of pose for this one, elegant and so concentrated at the same time. :squee: Lovely colors and dynamics! I feel that the lines and more free flowing spots represent that sort of control necessary to perform, but also a freedom. :heart:

This is great! I love the geometric shapes you used (you know how i love geometric shapes! Haha) and i love how you usedthem so express movement. Especially the movement on the Ballerinas right arm and how the curved shapes lead the eye like it was the movement of her arm... One thing i can see are the proportions seem to bw a tad bit off (ANATOMY IS SO HARD, i just got a book and im going to see how i do with it) and just like architecture anatomy has to be one of those things that have to be PERFECT if that makes sense? Great job though the stance and everything is great. also the circle shape of her right knee and how it stops the eye from going off the page and continue circulating around the piece which is sometimes not thought of when doing a piece of work... Very interesting color pallete as well! Great work as always :)

Thank you very much :) I would really fight for anatomy being proper in the piece, it is, however, harder to calculate than regular poses because it's dance.

It is connected, I thought the pose was quite obvious O.o Maybe the dress float makes you not see it properly?
