My Precious

I hear a voice in my head saying "My preciousss" due to the fact that the fingers really looks like gollums

small issue..

i really like this work, the chalk colours?.. simple and highly artistic piece... how ever, i feel that his finger *first finger* and thumb on his right hand is far to thin... they seem almost alien like... i dont know if this was done from a photo, but it could use with some beefing up... apart from that the lighting is well done and love the overall use of the tones... nice one ornery

ornery responds:

I knew i would be getting the thin finger critique. Whats hilarious is that my fingers are really really thin and look like that. Also the angle and lighting make it look even more exaggerated.

Nice ... but...

It is nice but the fire doesnt look like fire.If the fire has this shape because it touches the hand you should darken the top of the fire.

ornery responds:

Here is a fun project, go in a dark room, take a lighter, light it and place your hand near it covering just the tip of the the flame (visually, aka put you hand in front, not in the flame, don't burn yourself.) Notice how the light seems to wrap slightly around the part covering your hand? You've just witnessed the curvature of space time on a small scale, congrats (well that and a flaw in the human eye).
