great!

I really like the composition in this one. The brown in the background covers up around 2/3 of the page and that looks really pleasing.

I can also tell that there's much more to the picture than meets the eye. This is easy to tell because of the diversity of the hands reaching up to grab that person.

It makes me wonder if falling to them would be so bad, at least she would be different, and hanging on to her individuality doesn't seem to be any better.

Good.

This drawing shows originality and a fun side not only a dark eerieness or strange scenes as many other of your pictures which I do like in fact I may like them more than this one but it's well done. The third hand from the right and the robot arm is quite funny even though the drawing is a bit on the eerie side.

Prety neat for pastels

Hmm, it's as if you've been on something like Photoshop to tidy this piece up after making the drawing, which for the art of the pastel, the smudge and the filthy hands that can cause such a mess if you put a hand in the wrong place, just seems ever so slightly wrong. This is not to say that I dislike the piece, just the method.

All of the different types of hands look fantastic here. The texture of the background and the way that the focus is at the base of the image offer a differing perspective. I personally love the severed arm that is being held up by a shorter armed person and the skeletal arm, potentially showing differing walks of life all trying to get the same thing.

The lack of fine detail is a nice approach, keeping it vague also assists the symbolism, as if you give the face any true identity, you could ruin that effect. The blank, almost lifeless eyes are the only part of her face that could convey any emotion, though you have stripped that bare, leaving only white spheres in there, that betray nothing of the feeling within the piece.

THANK YOU!!
I did use Photoshop, but only to crop the image, the way it looks here, it's the way the actual drawing looks (smaller, of course).
Yeah, it's a PAIN using pastels on little details. However, I just used pastels for the background, the girl and the hands were colored with color pencils, mainly because there were so many little details. Also, I didn't have the right pastels for some colors, like the girl's skin.

THANKS AGAIN!!
