    Not bad. That's not how you hold a torch, though, even (or especially) with a metal guantlet. It's not really reading as a light source, either.

    Thanks Elwel, your right about the torch I kind of rushed into it, should have researched it more. As for the torch lighting I decided to make the work more bright, kind of faked it haha....would be cool torch lite but would be dark as hell. Probly wouldlnt see much on some monitors

    As aberrant mentioned, it's left-heavy. There's a great old trick of the masters where you look in the mirror at your work, or at it through a light in reverse, and you can see the balance of the piece. For some reason, flipping the image changes the way the mind processes it and dissimilarities and skews and all the other gremlins of art pop out. And to think, we have the wonder of technology to make it that much easier.
