Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

I like the simplicity of the outline and the shadow. It is very aesthetic.

truly a great piece. 

next time, maybe you should try proportioning the head a bit differently... i don't know, it felt a bit small. 

i love your outlining in yellow: nice touches. the slashes were also very good.... i really really love this!

Oliver Wendell Holmes once wrote \" many people die with their music still in them, to often they are always getting ready to live, before they know it time runs out\"

this peice shows great form and line it uses the elements of art in their strongest ways showing the tension in the lines and in the form and pose of the figure in the drawing. it shows good texture. its a really great peice.
