Hey I've been working on this painting for a while but I still don't feel finished.  For me the bottom left hand corner is too empty.  Does anyone have any advice on what I could put in that area?  I would really appriciate any suggestions. Grin

I really like your painting and tbh, it looks finished to me.  I think what's missing is a frame of some sort.  Are you going to frame it?

I think it looks grand! There's nothing better than a big old 'fro! If you are itching to add something to that corner, maybe you could just add a bit of the shoulders and an arm? But I think it looks smashing as is....tell us what you decide to do! I love it! Cheesy

dunno what you worked on but if it's paper/board, I'd just crop it from the left corner so that the whole image is more central... try editing the photo in paint, that click & drag function, so you can see what I mean.

to be honest, that's a very minor thing and it's totally your choice. I like it as it is, the lettering on "fro" is particularly sweet.

hope that helps Smiley

I would have to agree with rboecler on this one. I think that in order to resolve that corner you might just do an outline of the shoulders and arm. I would use just a contour line and not fill in the tshirt though. Does that make sense? Overall I think it looks good though.
