Oh yeah should at least place something in this contest with this so very cool creation. The body form and language is excellent. The shading is excellent. The details is excellent. The depth is excellent. The blend of the colors is awesome. The creation is well balanced and very eye appealing to the viewer. So very creative and awesome work overall (clapping)

I rue the fact that I don't have any six stars left for awarding this splendid artwork of yours!! It's such a beautiful composition. You crafted the male human body so beautifully- the muscular torso and sculpted abdominal part. And I love the message of universal brotherhood you seem to convey. It's a powerful theme and adds to the appeal of the artwork. Kudos and best wishes for the contest

To me it seems that the person this body belongs to, is suffering emotional pains, while the body remains intact. The contradiction of the realistic drawn body and the abstract background is striking. The body is drawn with great care and attention to realistic detail. That hair and fingers tangle with the background emphasizes the emotion of the person. Your drawing is well composed and framed. The composition is balanced.

This is an awesome entry for this contest! Very well shown male form , well defined shape and structure, he comes forward from the abstract background, I see the bare branches of a tree behind him. Awesome choice and application of the colors and tones. I agree with you about the way the body language speaks the true feelings also I feel that there is way too much emphasis on those things which we have no control over, our color , our birth place or the language we speak.
This man seems to be overwhelmed with emotion, , he appears desperate for a solution .
Well created, arranged and presented! Best wishes to you in this contest!

    Thank you Pat!! I appreciate your kind review. He was meant to convey the push and pull of conflicting emotions, tension of built up energy. Thanks again, I appreciate your encouragement and support

What do I see ?
This is a powerful image. I like the palette of colors used here, it has depth by creating the shadows but the nice colors somehow they come in contradictions with the body language . It looks like the man here is in pain, his body is flexed, he has a fist like he is ready to punch but holding himself not to. What was your idea when you created this? I am curious

    Thank you for your kind review. He does have built up tense energy, many dancers express their emotions through movement. I was trying to convey the push and pull of strong emotions, joy and fear, appreciation and anguish...

A very nice painting. I like the swirling background almost as well as the chisled body and contorted hand. Best of luck in the contest.

A good looking image posted here into the competition! Your fine and classical composition offers us a good view of a fit young man experiencing joy or agony about something.
Colours, textures and tones are good. Well drawn and good luck!

Comment from Glena Jessee-King


Nice and realistic human torso and neck, chin, arm, hand, etc. The colors in the form are nice also. I agree with your wonderful commentary regarding "Made perfectly in God's image,..." and the other. The focus figure work deserves a "6" or more. On the other hand, the flow of the hair adds to the flow of the image, however, perhaps its unrealistic treatment or strands do not as the swirls also definitely do not add to such outstanding work as the main focus but probably take away from considerably, especially those roughly marked like crayons; those definitely take away from the magnificience of the main focus, thus earning a "4" or less. If I average them I would give a "4.5" but am not sure what I should as to me there are three different scores deserving here. There is some good good in the swirls, like those that behave, appear ribbon likewith bends and twists especially the one below the arm.

    You are welcome. At least you didn't over paint the body; it is perfect. I somtimes overpaint, don't know when to quit.
Comment from Regina E.H-Ariel


You are so very right as body language is telling us much more, as words and your creation is excellent for this topic, as people need to learn to see and to understand body expressions
Your use of space is excellent, the way you placed this person into your picture is outstanding - the energy you created coming out of the body is special, cored ct in all ways, making this picture attractive, special, and your color combination and application are beautiful, creating simplicity and at the same time deep feelings
A very special content - KUDOS
