    I like this a lot. One question though. Why did you choose to leave the lower left with an unfinished look?

    Thanks. First, the piece was intended as a study; an impression of what I saw in the mirror. I didn't intend to polish the entire surface. I had an area of focus in mind where I tightened up. I kept loose further from the focal point.

    I was gonna say you might wanna get in there with some hard edges to tighten up the focus, but since you said that comment, i looked at it again, and i don't think it actually needs it. It's a very loose style, but it still reads well and you know where to look instantly. Good job!
