I think this is my best piece. I made this for my girl and I think she liked it. :love:

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 –
PANDAS ARE SUPER CUTE! :la:
- 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?

Very simple, beautiful and emotional drawing. I could imagine a little cartoon being made out of this. Hand anatomy is very well done and I like how you paid attention on little details like little wrinkles on the fingers. This image gives away a sense of love sensitivity and warmth. I like how you kept the heart a bit asymmetrical making it more life like. Overall, lovely work and I have to :+fav: it :heart:

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

The concept here comes across quite well. Two hands joined together showing the love two people can share. Each hand makes up one half of the heart, without the other hand they aren't complete. It reminds me a lot of the quote from lion king "We are one".

The anatomy of the hands has been done quite well, the fingers look like they're in quite a comfortable position and nothing looks out of place.

Although you have put shading in, it would be good to see a little more shading, not much as the heart is the main feature of the picture, but just a little more so that it looks like there's some more depth the hands in the picture.

I quite like the shadow that's on the paper, and it gave me an idea. Perhaps you could crop the sides of the paper a little bit, and darken the background leaving a ray of light surrounding the hands using the same shape as the hands. It could help make the picture send an even more powerful message to the viewer about love by showing the radiating light that surrounds it. If you have photoshop, GIMP or any other program (even MS paint although I would recommend it) you could try my idea without editing the original image in case you try it and decide you don't like it.

Hope my critique helped :)

Thank you for your critique. :love: I'm glad the message across to you in that way! That quote goes perfectly with this. :dummy:

Yay! I'm glad my hand anatomy is good, it's the hardest thing for a picture to look real.

I wish I could add more to it but I gave to my girlfriend. :saddummy: I can try to make another version of this but I doubt it come as well as it did the first time. Thank you for the advice, I'll be sure to use it when I get the time! :tighthug: :heart:

I can try that, but I'm not well with programs so it won't come out that well. I don't have photoshop either. :saddummy: But I'll definitely take it into consideration; it's been suggested by two people!

GIMP is a good alternative to photoshop. It's completely free and legal. The program can do many things that photoshop can do so it's worth while having a look at the program.

Hello, :wave: I'm here to write a critique for :iconfeedbackfrenzy: contest!

Wow, such a simple drawing and yet such a big impact. I love this idea: hands coming together to form a heart, love. I like how you pressed on the contour, it makes it more powerful. Also the small details are really nice. In fact, I think simplicity is what makes this drawing send out a strong message.

Keep drawing during classes, seem effective! Happy Holidays! :santa:

Thank you!! I tried hard to make the piece simple but effective in its message.

Haha. I will, unless my teacher doesn't come over and crumple it up...
Happy holidays to you too!!
