Oh MJ! I wish I could do as good as your failures. What is wrong with it? Since I do not do washes I'm not sure.

I agree with Danny.
Where is the failure?

MJ, I think this is beautiful. I love the soft background -- it looks like fabric -- and the soft backlighting on the head.

Hey MJ. I think it looks good. The background looks like sunlit clouds to me and I think she/he has an interesting look. What do you think is wrong with it? I like it..

I don't see any failure :)! Yet, whatever you see, now you know, so you will learn from your mistakes... unles you're really stubborn..like me. Every piece of art you make however small, or unimportant will effect your work.

I don't see a complete failure! Lots of positives here.

If it doesn't fit your vision have another go, MJ!;)

Let me concur, if my failures were THAT good....

You have modelled that head very very well, what do you see as failure?

Personal vision is an interesting thing. When we start a drawing, we have an idea of what we want to accomplish. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes things change and we take it in a different direction, sometimes we fail. But these successes and failures are in our eyes. Obviously from the responses you have here, your failure is personal - it didn't come out the way you wanted.

I don't see a failure here either. So don't be so rough on yourself. If nothing else, you learned something new.

I echo all the others. It's perfect... Of course, a new version would please we all as well :D :D :D

Thank you and a «««««««««««««HUG»»»»»»»»»»»»»»

The above quote by Oldthumbs is so true. That is why we are our own worst critics :) I have done quite a few drawings that I just gave away because the end result was not what I was trying to achieve. To me it was terrible but to others....they LOVED IT!! :D:)

MJ as you can see we ALL like what you have done with this :D:) Keep going!! I like the fact that we can post what we think are failures and get some support and advice in this WONDERFUL forum. Look forward to seeing your next wash!! :D:D:D:D:D

Actually, I like it. Washes often seem to come out better when uncontrolled. Loose and uncontrolled are marks of someone gaining enough confidence to let go. I say, well done!! :clap: :clap:
