ok, just one tiny piece of advice.  You are missing the trapezius muscle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trapezius).  It goes between the neck and the shoulder creating a little bit of a slope there.  It's an easy muscle to miss. 

Anyway, keep up the great work!

No critique yet.  Just a great big "Wow!!!" This is such an improvement!  Great job!!

This is my first time ever craving a pumpkin and I think I did a pretty good job. Next time I'll move the pattern up higher and maybe try something a bit more difficult.

Wow!  This is really great for a first time!!  Much better than the first several I made.  (But then again I started carving pumpkins with my parents when I was like 5 Smiley)
You did a great job on all the curves.

Sole has a really delicate flavor.  It's not very fishy at all, but you have to be gentle when you cook it.  It falls apart pretty easily.  Also sushi doesn't have a very fishy flavor or smell.

Ok, I've made a second one with a different cable and it covers more of my hand.  You can see it on my blog:


I'd love to hear what you think about this one.  Again, constructive criticism is most welcomed!
1816  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Would you like this fabric for your baby's quilt? on: October 27, 2006 02:33:15 PM
I love it!  It looks great.  The red and white polka dots are fantastic for a baby quilt.  Newborns love high contrast.

I definitely want to try sugar cookies...and eggnog, although the name sort of puts me off Tongue

Yeah, sugar cookies are great.  It's not Christmas for my Dad unless we have frosted sugar cookies with silver dragees. 

Careful with the eggnog though.  Some people love it and some people hate it.  I think it's super gross.  Like really, really, ridiculously thick milk with spices in it. Lips sealed

Last year I spent Halloween with my family and we went a little pumpkin-carving-crazy.  Here's the results:

The little one with all the stickers was done by my little baby nephew. Grin

Here's my husbands creation.  He really liked that the pumpkin looked moldy.

Some more:

My brother's (age 11) creation:

and finally this little one.  (It says "beware!" the "e!" is around the side)

Your portrait looks good.  And you have received some good advise on this thread.  I just have a couple things to add. 

1. How big is this drawing?  It looks a bit cramped.  Try getting a big sketch pad, like 18" x 24" (or bigger) to give yourself some room. 

2.  I second the recommendations to do some quick sketches (they're called gestures and they are good for understanding the movement and pose of the body) and also doing some anatomical drawings.  They will really help you understand the structure, skin over muscle over bone.

3.  Try drawing yourself with your hair pulled back into a bun or ponytail.  The hair looks great, but it will help you improve the portrait if you can see your face and bone structure more clearly.

Keep up the good work and don't be afraid to take chances.  I look forward to seeing more of your work!  Smiley

depends on how much time you want to put into it.  I am always impressed when people put as much effort into the back of a project as the front, so I vote for embroidery on the back, too.  But it will still be great if you choose to do plain velvet.
