Oh, wow. I usually hate the half-lidded eyes look, but it's completely right here, for all the reasons I usually hate it- it looks sleepy and cold-blooded and reptilian. Nice green tint on everything, too!
maybe just a bit! even just a couple of tones lighter may help the snake come out a little bit but still leave the focus on the lady's face. do you do much traditional painting, like with acrylics? i yam curious!
