Layout is good and the lack of colours make it fitting for a time
And age of sensations. Though some of the details need a little work, the
Undefying pose and the fine charcoal strokes and blending are well-placed.
Rendering with the shading on her face needs a little work, but the hair and the
Ebony dress and scarf contrasting with the background is well-put in a stunning
Noir setting.

Black definitely suits her and the mood all over,
And the hardened but beautiful face that stuns the hearts of viewers, her
Chiming deep siren-like voice, hair that cascades like a waterfall that
Allures the transcendence of time, her charm and grace enraptures you to
Let her say, "Are you happy to see me?". I may not know her well, but sleep well,
What do you think?

The art is marvelous! The lack colors make it have a great sensation of age. Making it look like an old photography. It really is marvelous. The coloring is also beautiful, and the pose is great. I love it. Do continue like this, because it's really nice. The detail may lack some on the scarf. But besides that, it's really great. The hair is well done, and the eye in the back is astoundingly good. The shadow, and shading is also very nice. With the splint of the eye showing in the background. It's very nice, do go on like this!

Boy did you ever capture her!!  No small feat, as her "look" is very difficult to nail...but that you did!!!
