This is another really nice one... but I don't feel it has the same amount of dynamic impact about it that your other one does. This face seems to be more calm, and so the rough lines stop complimenting the mood as much... in fact, for me anyway, the lines get in the way of the mood. This person almost seems beaten to death instead of sleeping, or just sitting peacefully with their eyes closed. Sorry, but it does. The technique for the lines I envy, but I would caution you to consider the mood you are trying to create, and use a technique that will allow you to succeed at that goal.
This is a well proportioned face, but this one just seems to lack the level of punch that some of your previous work held.
Again, I love the dark contrast with these lines. I love the texture. Just keep the mood in mind for other pieces, and if you learned from this piece, it certainly wasn't a wasted effort. Keep them coming!

I really like this piece. The lines are very dark and dramatic, yet the expression is calm. I feel like this person could be dead, as the previous critique said, or they could be sleeping. It almost seems as if they had a very rough life, and they're sleeping(or dead) and are finally calm. They still have a slight look of anger to them but at the same time they look at peace. It's very intriguing.

I don't know how you create lines so perfect but still abstract. The shading on the eyes is amazing. It enhances the contrast and makes a great focal point.

If this art was in motion with the veiny lines moving rapidly and random would be so cool. Or moving in the outline of the contours or shadow, forgot the art name for it.
I can see it in my head, the face looking at me as if it was looking into a mirror

Hello agnes-cecile.
Your art is very strong. I would like to use 'waiting' as a cover to a poem a wrote in a web-page publication. I will not receive any remuneration. If you let me use your image, I will give you full credit and provide a link here.

Here's the poem:

apathy

on their way to the important stuff,
they looked at the man as if he wasn't there,
as if …
no.
that is incorrect,
meaning my description is wrong.

they walked past the man because they didn't see him.
he wasn't there.
he wasn't theirs.

i saw them, watched them not seeing him.
i ate my sandwich in the wonder of it.

and then i turned and went back to my life.

I have always loved the art style of drawing in a way that shows absolute mastery of form while simultaneously indicating extreme energy and rapidity of process. I am barely capable of approximating it. This does it very well.
