    Cool project, Beavo. I like seeing these sorts of places through a personal filter, it gives you a lot of information about that person and their interaction with the place when it's done right.

    you left out the skinheads though

    don't worry, i'm sure at least half of the people at the rodeo were incredibly racist, so they're back there in the crowd.

    The only crit I have is that the glow on the horse and lady reduces the visibility of the lines and it's hard to pick them out. Sort of looks like there's a glare on my monitor. It's a similar effect. The ones around the bull are alright, they don't mess with the lines much. The glow on the oil pump to the far left is intense too.

    Otherwise it's great, it fits in with the other ones perfectly.

    This is a really great piece! nothing is really stand out wrong. but I think you are putting too many details in your darker value ranges that people can't really see that well anyways. like the oil pumps. if you brought up the value we could see some of the mechanics better. Same thing with the bull and the horse on the shadowed underbellies.

    This will also print better since darker values tend to compress together when printing.

    I actually saw a skinhead for the first time here. I think people were yelling at him from across a busy intersection.

    i did a bit of adjusting. it's pretty subtle hahah but I did change some things! After messing with the bull, I decided just to leave his back end dark, he looks too cut and pasted on when I take out the heavy shadowing
    but i darkened his outlines just slightly

    I still think that oilpump in the forground is too dark. it really punches a hole in your composition. horse is better, but i still wanna see that beautiful drawin on it's muscles.

    my work gets increasingly more abstract as time goes by
    which is a good thing i think
    but soon i'm going to be making like... kandinsky style work and i'll be all "look at my art!"
    and you'll be like "beav i don't get it"
    and i'll put on my beret and roll my eyes at all of you.

    i'm kidding, i could never be as good as kandinsky, he's a god.
    also i just replaced 8 things in my portfolio with stuff i made in the past two weeks, how awesome is that?
    yay! productivity!

    It might be cool to call your works 'Composition x' though.

    And it seems like all the genius artists always go more and more abstract, and then go weird. As long as you don't get to the point where you're pooing in tin cans or framing urinals I'll love your work.

    Put a photo of you holding your puppy on there. Then you'll look happy and people will like you because of your puppy.

    Just do an emboss on the edges and maybe an inner glow......also another lense flare wouldn't hurt.

    EDIT: Oh you already came up with that idea.....I feel so redundant. I'm just going to go and make some text look like chrome to make myself feel better.
