God this work is fuckin' stunning!These are the words that I've said when I've seen this beauty!And i think I'm not the only one,so I can begin saying that the tecnique is at the first sight easy but I think it isn't,'cause this is a really emotional piece...this gives to me lots of feelings,like frustration,angst,moves my anger inside,deals with the darkest and most misterious part of our soul,this is a whirlwind of nuisances...so I can say that the impact is really really big,the vision is amazing,and I can say that is original,and the pencil lines and shades are perfect.I totally agree the black and white choose,so keep your work hard,you're an amazing artist!
Cant say I'm adequate enough to comment on traditional art but i'll give it a shot. First off I was impressed to see how much of an all round artist you were... showing a considerable amount of skill in every think you try your hand at which is no easy feet. trying your hand at every think and being compatant could earn you the title of 'Jack of all trades and master of none' but try your hand at everything and being exceptional is another story.
On to the actual sketch its self I find it very easy to get drawn in, the way you flow from feminine soft curves to masculine scratchy marks is another example of your ability to conquer all and great mark making. But when trying to find a narrative or anything close to, I seem to be fixated on comparing the minimal background to the outline of the foreground.
How the arm of the middle subject matches the shape and feel and how it seems too represent a tree which in most eyes will be strengthened by the similarities of the two 'grounds'. The man almost looks like he is part of nature going though some terrible rejoin with mother earth.
You will also notice more as you scan the image, little bits of un-noticed detail and build more of your own narrative. The closest I can get to a narrative is the life of man and earth and how both may be dyeing slowly. I drew this from the pain of the man and the barren cold of the scene It feel's like a statement from all eco nut's "this is where where heading" of course I could be wrong and you just drew what you felt but is that not the point of art to paint our on picture from another's...
So that I don't bore you any further I'll finish by saying damn your good...
Wow, thank you so very much for this amazing, wonderful and spirit-uplifting feedback. I am really touched with the way you've experienced my drawing. You gave me one of the most wonderful compliments an artist could ever receive!
