        • Good background, and wings are beautiful.
        • Some excellent work, but the pants, especially at the waist, spoil it for me.
        • is that trousers?? But good work with the Wings, its a creepy work like it;
        • nice shadowing , what a beautiful flower…
        • Thanks guys, the pants were a difficult thing, I loved the flower but it was at such a difficult angle that using the legs of anyone sitting on a chair or the ground just didn't work - too square - these are the legs of a ballet dancer leaping in the air and leant themselves to wrapping around the flower but still not ideal - maybe I need to learn to draw legs - LOL.
        • I still think this is hilarious and a great execution. The only thing I'd say in regards to the legs, because I personally think they look great, is that the shadow cast seems too large, or maybe tone down the opacity a bit. But i still love it and congrats!
        • Congratulations. Your concept makes perfect sense-nice depiction.

    The Flower Man is PSYCHO
        • I salute your idea hidden interesting idea, nice try..
        • I keep getting this - "nice idea", as if the execution is poor.

          The lighting, water from the shower, glow of backlight around his head,facial changes...

          If there is nothing technically wrong with it, and it's a good idea, then it is a good pic.

          Sometimes you have to know when to take the finger paints away from the kids or else they just make the same, big mess every time.
