I like it, and yet the shadows don't seem dark enough, especially contrasted with the darkness of shadows in the face....
The blues around the face and around the candle seem to need more darkness.
However your talent is obvious. Thanks for sharing.

Oh really? I live right here, in Jerusalem.
And I learned some Spanish when I traveled to Colombia and Mexico a couple of years ago... but you seem to be handling English quite well.
Anyways, if you need any assistance acclimating yourself to a whole new country, and would like some tips from the restless natives, I'd love to try and help. Note me if you want.

Reminds me about fact our 19th century history teacher told us.
Did you know that before the end of 19th-20th century it washibited to draw screaming people (take for example Laocoon...). Only since impressionists artists started to draw screams...

Now I understand why. It's too stunning =D

I really enjoy the emotion in this piece.
The composition and colours caught my eye right away but it was the subject matter that pushed me to full view.
Amazing and creative work! :thumbsup:

It has a primordial feel to it, a sense of very raw emotion as if he's transgressing the boundaries of pain / suffering. Excellent work, congratulations.

Of course, this is a great piece. The palette you've chosen is right on. What I really like best, though, is that hearty dark bit of shading that crawls its way down the contours of the jaw and throat. Very harsh lighting, that, in a good way.

Looks like he's being tortured, and you can really feel the scream
Also you gave a really nice texture to this with the coloured pencils, it's like I could touch it
Nicely done :)
