WOW...The emotions within this piece is strong and very powerful. The contrast sets the mood for the whole image for it engages me to deeply feel the true emotions expressed within...I really enjoyed the creative flow of lines and detail shown. I believe expressing ourselves through our art is how we learn and grow. To stop the flow of imagination with in ourselves is like stopping the Earth from spinning and you really kept the flow on track. This is very true; we as artists should all share the passion. The passion here is well captured. I am so loving this well done piece.
Just randomly read your critique request and though this is totally awesome, you could always buy a quality white gel pen, oil-based marker, or something similar to create extremely fine patterns or whatever floats your boat within the large black sections. Some color would be coolio, I suppose.
