There is a misconception that "good" art is chocked full of detail. What I like about this picture is that it has exactly the right amount of detail and no more. The viewer knows exactly which parts are important.

I love that we can feel the motion in the lines. It's awesome. There is crosshatching and interesting line work but also the confidence to leave sections rough and blank.

The selective use of color is great too. However, I'm not sure how I feel about the glasses. It doesn't bother me that BOX 13 is white. However, it's weird that the reflection of the man is so blue on those red glasses. It's unfortunately disjointed.

The other think that irks me is that the line for her neck doesn't go all the way to the edge of the picture. It's a tiny thing but I don't like that it goes from being a thick line to nothing at all.

This picture is awesome. Not perfect but still really, really good.

=Res-Gestae Thanks for the crit. It's great to hear from someone who knows his stuff. The idea that good art doesn't nee d to be detail filled is an internal battle I often fight with myself about. As you can see from my portfolio, I do a wide range of work and some requires huge amounts od detail, but I feel comics are best when they are about subtlety, nuance, line and color, especially with this particular project too much detail would kill it. You can see the opposite end of the spectrum in the Elric pieces I have on here.

Thanks again!
