    This erks me to say but your background is flat. And I must say I was more intrested in the thighs than anything. Is that your intent?

    I believe the intention was to make the background flat - aiming for an original approach or even a lithographic effect ala Callot(?). This picture is a breath of fresh air.

    I like it! I'm particularly impressed with the way the little stones of the plain moving forward toward the viewer actually work. Bits of stuff never work for me...they look spotty and bitsy. Yours is really effectively putting space between me and those figures.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    The "antlers" on the creature on the left really pop! Nice piece, I like.

    Thanks for your krit. You have a good eye, "thats the effect i was after." I featured how fat and blobby they are - "the overall shape and enormity" - rather than identity.

    I appreciate the good energy.

    My latest sculpture...

    This was a really fun sculpture. It is based on a concept drawing I did a month ago. The original character wears a garment. I started not to do the mid section - just the head and limbs but I got so caught up in the moment that i decided to chew out a torso for the guy. I am currently constructing the garment so when it's finished I will post it along with the original concept image.
    Thanks for viewing'
