This is a very good piece and it definitely stands out to me. I think the block is an interesting factor to make it look 3D, and I like the way you angled it. The only issue that I can see is it looks unfinished. I like how you incorporated different textures throughout the person, but where the thin lines are it looks like it needs something. I would suggest you make the lines the same thickness as the block, or just a bit thicker than they already are. The face also looks incomplete, but I like the vanishing sensation. A way I think could help is to make the eye darker and have your shading slowly disappear like what you did with the right side of the picture. Overall, I love the creativity and effort put into the artwork.
What's there to say? It's amazing again. Truly. The way the persona looks like he's cradling himself, yet the three dimensional square surrounds him creates a really surreal feel towards him. The details really stand out the most though: I really love the facial features and how they simply fade away and drift off into the canvas. Although, the white markings on his arm are really interesting, and draw my eye more than anything else, due to the fact I can't really make out what they are. To me it looks like a star constellation, yet other parts in looks like a distant flower as such. Which all in all really makes you actually look at the piece and wonder about it which is the type of art I love! Truly magical once again! Well done.
This is really cool. It makes me think of the saying 'think outside the box'. I really like how his arms are darker because it accents the 'map'which I think looks like cracks in glass. I like his expression as well, it seems like he's really thinking about a choice unmade.
As always, magnificent work, simply beaut...i....f...u...l !!!! now about the work first of all, in most of your paintings there will be always something that steal my attention, here it turns out to be the his hand and the box now what i think about the painting is, the person in the box represents each and every person in the world, every single person in this world has to struggle to become successful in this world. now the inscriptions on his hand, "the map", is the only way out which will result in his/her success the painting is trying to tell that "the map" is a part of who we are, our each and every actions and its possible outcomes are what the lines depict what we have to do is to figure out what we have to become and chose the right path to get out of the box and become successful on the contrary, if we chose the wrong path we'll continue struggling and will fail to achieve success.......we'll be stuck in the box living in misery not knowing what we've become

I like this very much, and I don't agree with the critique, I favourited it as soon as I saw it. Rather than making any body lines heavier I would suggest making the cube lines less weighty and maybe fadeout slightly the cube lines behind the head. There is nothing about this that looks unfinished.
I really like to piece, especially with the box that makes it 3-D. Love the unfinished work of it. I do have one suggestion. If you put the arm , which is the left side, to place it above the line that connects to the box. So it can make an illusion of the art coming out. Just like what you did with the head.
Wow. Just breathtaking - honestly. There are some that will not fully understand the moment encapsulated in this work, but for those of us who can see themselves in this piece, the statement is almost painfully clear.
