It's funny, but while we all should be our own worst critic when it comes to the decision of which of our works to put "out there" often others look with a different eye to ourselves.
I've always admired your ability to show depth in your works, and this is no exception. Perhaps a little dark on the arms - and bear in mind that I'm looking from a photographers viewpoint, not an artists - but only a little. As always, I stand in awe of your talent.
So I see you have the same problem I do....the rest of the world thinks it's perfect...and yet you can see things you would have done different..not better...just different. Well I am in the rest of the world here with this one...i find it absolutely amazing...the model is beautiful..you captured her fantastically...I love the overall feel of it...and personally I don't see anything wrong....but I'm not the artist on this one...and I guess only you can decide what is and isn't right with it. Granted, I have said to others before, if you become satisfied with a drawing..you stop growing..and that's not a good thing. So here's to never being satisfied with our work....
I'm glad I saw you in InsaneKane's journal...or else I probably would have never seen this one...and now..I can't wait to see more and more....keep up the great work, and hope to hear from you soon....
My pleasure...anytime I see someone's work here, I do try and make a comment...especially if they are new to me. It's one thing to give a fav on something I like...but if it's someone I haven't seen before, then it's just better (in my opinion) to leave them a comment so they at least know who you are.
But the satisfied part I get from my grandfather. He was an artist for, christ, 50+ years..and always told me to never be satisfied with a drawing. And with how I looked up to him...I took anything he said to heart.
