Gosh, rainbow_art,
I just wanted to say I'm a fan! Really nice.  I can't draw anything more complex than a tic tac toe board, so can't really give advice, other than keep drawing.

I think this is really nice and a very interesting drawing...nice composition too!  You may want to make your dark areas darker to really make the drawing pop out.  Maybe try doing another one with charcoal?  It'll be easier to manipulate the amount of light in your drawing with charcoal first and then move on to something like colored pencil.

Nice job!  Keep going!!!

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

Fun4Bambi - thank you so much for your comment  Smiley I will keep drawing, im doing AS Art at the moment so that is keeping me very busy with paintings and drawings  Smiley

archer*of*loaf - thanks for your advice  Smiley  I will definately try it in charcoal, i was at school when i started the picture and i dont like the school charcoal, its different to the kind i have at home so i used coloured pencils instead.  Roll Eyes I agree it would have been easier to manipulate the amount of light in the drawing though, i will definately use your advice  Smiley

I think this is great as is ...I am more a painter than a drawing artist, but I cant find anything, other than maybe a tiny bit more shadow towards the bottom of the pic. You are to be commended for drawing such a complex subject, so well!

amazing.. you never realize how dificult it is to draw a pinecone until you sit down and try it!! looks great!!

They didn't agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.
