Just fantastic! I love pencil sketches especially those on something as simple as notebook paper.

When a drawn body comes to life on the page, the artist has succeeded! YOU have succeed. This picture has amazing life. It is full of energy and makes me happy when I look at it. Her body exudes energy and excitement.

One thing I always admired about Klimt's notebook drawings were his ability to bring hands and feet to life with a mere pencil. You have done the same! Her entire body has life. The eyes and the smile are the finishing touch. :)

Lovely. just wonderful!

Ok, well this is the first time ive done a critique. i think you did AMAZING! I love the detaul that was obviously put into this. I only have two problems with it. one, its on notebook paper. i dont know why i dont like that, but i dont. the other thing is that theres no color! i really wouldve liked to see some color added to it, but i still think it looks beautiful. very original! i dont think ive ever seen anything like it :) Really, everything else seems perfect. i love the look that she has on her face, it really fits the description of a siren from greek mythology for me. keep it up! i wish i could draw as well as you do :)

I know this is old now, but I really love this and I wonder why I've never seen it before! I love the wispyness of it and (I know this will sound weird but) the feet look really great. You are truly a master! I love that face!! Your shading is brilliant!

I love the way she looks like she's floating, it's so cool! I think you could've totally called her a witch/fairy/angel just as easily. You rock!

This is really pretty, and I like it a lot. She has a sort of coy and mischievous look that fits the Sirens of Greek myth. Only thing is around some of the lighter parts, you can see where the pencil made marks instead of it being uniform. Other than that, though, great job!
