I'm not quite happy with this one. I don't know exactly why. Is it the facial expression? The exaggeration of face? Rendition of hair? Whatever it is it doesn't have a "kick" to it. When I put the pencil down I wasn't that excited, in fact, I was discontented. Could it be that I was just tired? Maybe. I did have a cat nap right after it was done, and I'm looking at it again- just no feeling for it.
My works usually excite me that I would not stop staring at it. Thinking all the time spent was all worth it. Completes my day and makes me want to do the next project.
I guess I have to stop whining at this point.
