Does this work as a neo-expressionistic work

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).
I think your only real problem is that you think that by rejecting realism your art becomes better or unique, the idea that expression/feeling can be conveyed better through quick impressions with no regard for any of the fundamentals is just wrong..
Until that changes you are doomed to producing art that is unrelatable(Apparently not a word).
I.e No one will want to have it in their house (from previous thread)
honestly i was striving for a more realistic style and i think i achieved that. Man, ya'll have to understand, majority of us (painters) will never draw like Michaelangelo or Durer. I don't understand how my painting doesn't work. Your painting just mystifies why it doesn't work even more. What you painted is even more unrealistic.

also, i am not trying to sound abrasive. I am just being honest.
Here's an analogy. If you want to have your drivers license, you don't need to be one of the best drivers in the world, you simply need to be able to drive without being a danger to others. Well it's similar for art, there's a level of fundamentals and understanding you need to reach to produce quality art. For now your fundamentals are my analogys' equivalent of running over pedestrians.
I think the image has some entertaining features. You've got a little bit of caricature going and some of the shapes aren't bad and have sort of an interesting movement, it has a jittery feel to it. Search more, work on the hands, push it far into realism and then bring what you learned from it back into your stylization.
"Beliefs are rules for action"
"Knowledge is proven in action."
"It's use is it's meaning."
It's not closer to realism.. You keep saying it is, it's not..
None of your paintings are... even remotely close to realism whatsoever..
You keep saying you have a style but I'm not seeing it :/
All I'm seeing are poorly constructed flat paintings of aliens or midgets,(Last few)
or this time snake neck monsters with large eyes.
thanks armando. I was striving for a more realistic feel. There were certain things i did with this one that i normally don't do. To me this is an intermidate expressionistic work. I can draw but usually my drawing doesn't translate to paintings.
am i the only one that sees that his rendition of my painting is just...
It looks like the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous
I actually don't think this is a bad attempt. Again, your lighting is not wholly consistent.The hair of the left of the picture should be lit. And what is causing that shadow on her neck?
