I agree with much of what Armano is pointing out. He has offered perhaps the most valuable critique given to you in this thread. --- Your pencil technique is very interesting, though it seems that you are trying to tread through the snow and cover up your tracks, so to speak. Meaning, you are deliberately creating a pattern of linework that is impossible to follow and understand which begs the viewer to be fascinated by it (which we all are). But creating artwork that only draws attention to its medium draws from the life of the subject. You are desperate to stay clear of the norm that you are willing to sacrifice the integrity of the drawing to in return create a unique style of depicting your subject and unfortunately it shows through. But I think any self-respecting artist deals with this issue at one point or another and it helps define their artistic goals. We have learned a lot from eachother since we met. So keep it up cause you've got nowhere to go but up!
