Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Drew the portrait from a photo, then tried to incorporate the first 4 lessons when working on it. I'm not happy with it and would like to get feedback on how I could make it better, even if having to start over. I'm quite sure it's over-worked. Feedback PLEASE!

Is the piece for sale? No

Maybe you have to make the shadow on mama's neck very light and the neck of the dog darker. It will make the contrast better.

Thanks Bregje! I appreciate your comments. It's clearly pretty overworked by now, but I see your point! Will try that next go around.

I would suggest to actually hatch on the mamas face instead of useing the brush so that it contrasts more with the dog.

I love this artwork - it is very emotive for me, and I really like the use of white space on her face, it brings out her joy. Great job!

Thanks so much for all your comments and suggestions! I'll be trying again soon and will post the new results.
