    I like it a lot! Very emotional!

    Only thing I would critique would be that I think you could push the focus a bit more one some elements, 'cuz now it all seems a bit hazy.

    I'm with dCept: great motion and e-motion, a lot of frenetic energy. My eye keeps going to the hand holding the tie, however. With the sharpness, edge support (from the tie), and contrast, that seems to be the focus, but it feels all wrong. It feels like it should be a story, but I don't know the sequence. If the sharpness were to increse from each element, it would present a much more coherent composition. Of course, the indetermint nature is probably intentional, but I think it's a little too chaotic.

    Lovely work, though

    Previous two posters pretty much summed up my thoughts too. Love the energy and the story telling and the overall image, but I'd love to see a bit more focus in places other than that one arm.

    stunning piece! I really like it. crit, imo you could spend a bit more time in certain areas and work them out a bit more...careful not to loose the dynamics though. maybe the faces or the hands....just too set some highlights and give the eye a spot in the painting to rest.
    beauty.

    thanks for the posts guys. my thinking was that the clarity of the painting was intended to echo the clarity of a particular emotion, so things get sharper at the top. What i wanted was the eye to travel from the top (end) to the botton (source). But ill take your critiques to heard and buff up the hands a bit. thanks again.

    okedokee, by request i added some more detail to the lower hands. again, i was trying to let the eye travel down so i kept it loose...and i think this was a nice compromise. thanks again for the crits.

    It's amazing how subtle the difference is and yet how much easier it flows.

    Sublime.
