First of all, thank you very much for the intelligent critique - it is the first critique I have ever received, and I'm happy you like it so much! :D

I first used the comic book style layout, as you called it (I hadn't thought of it like that), in my Harry Potter drawing. With this one I let the images extend over the borders. The idea is to make the drawing more dynamic, with only a little extra effort, so I'm glad you liked it!

I'm especially happy you liked the faces and hair, because I was critical of those parts myself, but I couldn't find a way to improve them. If it looks good - awesome. :)

Well done, spotting the background. You're absolutely right, I left marks from the tortillon there and couldn't blend them back in. In retrospect I should have been creative with the background, using the Canadian flag or something. I'll have to be more careful next time.

How do you think I can improve Heather Moyse's hat? Does it look too flat?

Thanks, David, fantastic review. I appreciate it! :D

Hi Aura, how's it going? I've been away from DA for a few months, just checking in on things today. It's a bit embarrassing to have left everything so long. :( Enjoying the F1 season so far? :)
I posted by defense to that argument a few comments down. ;)
