It's beautiful. It makes me feel sad, but it is still very, very beautiful and well done.

I enjoyed this very much. At that size, it must make for great viewing in person. Very nice :clap:

Bang on! The tonal areas really add to the line quality. It's a great face.

This piece is powerful. A ludicrous saviour. An idiot who believes himself to be enlightened.

scratched from the melting surface
a face before the nothing
a gaze before gone

This is really cool Ronin...the charcoal blending in the background gives it a real mystical feeling and the puzzle itself is very complex.
I like the blending of the charcoal also, especially in contrast to the line...huge drawing...

well as usual... I love it.
02-11-2003, 08:06 PM
