after looking at some of the critics art in their galleries, I would say that this blows away their best work and they should look at your work for inspiraion in hopes of becoming half the artist you are. Just a perspective from the outside looking in
I'll tell you, this does not lack anything. People are always so critical and miss what is behind all of the technicalities..the piece. So, here we go as I said before this piece seems to lack some hue? There is no hue. Second of all, the saturation will be dimmed down a bit because it's a picture, not a scan. Thirdly I really do think it is quite the drawing, only beacuse it seems to be as photorealistic as a picture. A great practise piece for drawing, but I must say..excellent shading.
