I have to start off by saying I completely love Isabelle. She's sexy, a kick butt fighter and makes the books interesting. Now this is a critique that is going to be hard to write because its not exactly a photo. This whole picture comes down to your drawing skill and let me just say; its amazing.

In particular, her hair looks exactly how the book describes but you've drawn it in such a way that is so Isabelle-ish.

Her dress is also how I imagined it to be in the book; white and lacey. Its a wonder the whip isn't curled around her arm. Her face is also the exact way I ictured it in my mind. Vague; beautiful; magnificent; defined.

I really like the picture, as I have stated, but you lost an Originality star because of her pose. Yes, I can see it is Isabelle Lightwood but it would be so much more interesting if she was in a pose that would make me recognise her the instant I look at the picture.

I also knocked off half an impact star because she seem so white. That wasn't your fault really but maybe if her skin had a little more colour, it may make it more standoutish.

Overall, you are an amazing artist and when I heard that you had taught yourself I literally fell out of my chair. This picture is no exception; so if this doesn't help then just tell everyone I'm an amateur :D Good work Brigid!
