    So far this is a drawing, not a painting. Your major problem is that, like most beginners you've underestimated the pelvis - your drawing is off! Take another look. If it's too late to make another start, keep this in mind for next time. Second: every time you work, composition comes first. Every piece of work we do exists on an abstract basis. As representational artists, our work also has to "make it" on many other levels, but without a good composition the best painted apple, or head, or fantasy creature is worthless. Next time think about the whole page. Your "design" should work even if you hold your painting upside down! If you are working in line, the quality of the lines becomes one of the compositional forces. If you add values, then there is a passage of light, a passage of middle tones, and a passage of dark through the work and the movement of these values becomes part of the composition.

    Your page doesn't look as if you thought about these things when you were doing thumb nails and thinking about composition....You need to develop "page sensitivity," that is start "feeling" the page before you begin working. Even in your sketchbook you need to feel how what you are about to draw will sit on the page, how the shapes you are creating around it will work with it. When you study the work of great artists, think how they are using the page. You are at the beginning and there is always a great deal to learn. I hope this encourages you.

    PS Say hello to Brenda from Maxine (Max the Mutt Animation School, Toronto).
