I like the attention to detail in a lot of the smaller areas. The variation in the lacing, the nice effect of the corset, the subtle curves in the anatomy, etc. I think you have nice handling of the watercolor technique. Consistency of that type of paint is really hard to create, but you've done a fantastic job of laying the paint where you want. The highlights in the hair are incredible!

I think Gothic Lolita is something a lot of people can fall back on, but I do think because of the attention to detail you've included, it doesn't fall in the realm of cliche. The realistic approach to take to anime helps with that as well (you do have the bigger eyes but not gargantuan, you pay attention to physics and anatomy, etc)

As far as composition goes, it has good balance top-to-bottom, but the figure is right in the middle of the canvas. This makes the image a little static. The movement in the hair and the ribbon in the background help break this up, could you add more of those? The texture in the background is an awesome touch, I can tell it's on watercolor paper (and texture like that is what gives watercolor paper its charm)

The value is what really gives this piece its impact. I like how the piece is nearly monochromatic with just hints of color here and there. The subtleties in this piece create a low impact at first, but in noticing all the details it really allows the impact to slowly crawl into the viewer. I would say that some areas have much greater ranges of value than others, but I'm not sure if I mind that. It may create a bit of a style difference from, say, the dress to the hair, but I don't see it as distracting at all.

Overall, well done!

Vision:

5
When I see this, I think watercolor but it's probably something else.
The texture of the page is wonderful to my eyes, and when I see it over the skin it makes me cringe ever so slightly and yet I enjoy the texture that the page gives to the skin.
The way the arms and face are colored I can see where the sun or light is coming from and why those shadows are there.

Originality:

4
Originality. My old nemesis.
I gave this a 4 for originality because I haven't seen much art like this around for quite some time.
I can' really explain the rating for this any other way. It's like taking out my heart cleaning up all the bad parts and throwing out the good parts to give you. Then going through the bad things that could help you and give you those.

Technique:

5
The technique you use in your art is marvelous.
Candy to my eyes. The depth you give to your art is amazing.
I feel like this lady could reach out and slap me at anytime. Or give me a hug.
And I enjoy seeing her gravity defying hair. Reminds of Final Fantasy.
The shading on her the lower part of her right arm is wonderful by the way.

Impact:

4.5
When I see her face.
I see a smile.
And a pair of emotionless eyes.
Is it a dark secret that hides behind those eyes? Or perhaps years of pain locked away in the abyss of the mind.
I cannot quite explain it, but those eyes and that smile remind me of a girl I once knew.
And that was the very ordeal with her.
Thus, impact 4.5

And just on a personal note.
I like her neck. It's not too short and yet not too long.
At the very least she has a neck. Most people can't get the proportion of the body or neck just right. You have practically accomplished that in mos of your art. Congratulations!

~Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
~Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.
~ Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
~I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.
~A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
~Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
~ Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

Again, wonderful watercolor work! Others write of minor missteps in eye color or shading, but the reality is the REAL medium being used here, and the fantastic nature of exciting results when working "traditionally" (I hate having to use that term, due to the rise of working "digitally"). The intense darkness of her eyes only begs us to look deeper, that's all. Exact details are far overrated when you wish to dive into a painting. I so appreciate your style, so delicate and "storybook" on the outer level, but so dark beneath. Beautiful. Fave'd.
