I used pencils and a sharpie! :dummy:

Hi, :DJmotes: :wave:
I am here to critique this piece for the second :iconfeedbackfrenzy: contest. :eager:
Please remember, that these are my opinions only. There is no right or wrong answer. :)
I’d like to start this critique off with –
- Sorry about that little.. outburst, I don’t know what just happened. :blush:

Moving on - I was saying, that I would start off with saying how well done I think this is! There are a lot of little details such as the little wrinkles by the left thumb (left as in left hand), but still you manage to keep it super clean and simple. The lines flow effortlessly through the frame leading my eyes, and it’s an absolute joy seeing how you pulled it off. :clap:

Another thing to mention is your use of gradients. I assume this is done with charcoal? I tried using charcoal once, and I thought it would be easy, but was I wrong. It was a mess.
You have, on the other hand, mastered this skill. Even if it’s not charcoal, you have still done the shadowing so convincing, that you had me believe it was.

I’m trying to look for anatomy-mistakes, but I can’t really find any. I’m trying to curl my hand up in a similar pose, but to no use, really. It’s spot on.

One thing – and it’s really not a big deal – I’d like for you to crop the image, maybe as a square. I think that would fit the illustration nicely. Do you have Photoshop or another similar program?
Photoshop is great at “cleaning” your drawing. You can use simple tools to remove little grey “stains” in the background of your image, so the lines will pop out. I assure you, it will look great!

One more thing, did you scan this picture, or did you take a picture of it? Because I think the quality is great, and most scanners really ruin traditional drawings.
I’d like to end this critique by complimenting you for your use of symbolism. The heart in the middle is great, and it looks like it belongs there. It follows the lines of the left thumb. It’s so simple and so great, that it could be a tattoo-design.

I know you did the line in the heart to show how the palms are touching, and that’s very good! It just leads me to think along the lines of “broken heart” and “shattered love”, but I don't assume that is the meaning at all :D

Over-all this is (as you probably know by now) great, and it’s a job well done. It caught my eye instantly.
What do you think?
