You really captured some great emotion in these. Haha you make it hard for me to give feedback when your work is just so good. If I had to say something, I would say the last one, her mouth is a bit off, but other than that your work stands it's ground and shows it's beauty.

Thanks again for your feedback! As for the 'off mouth', my layout drawing must have shifted a bit while inking the picture and I didn't notice it. But as I have read, Indian believe that in every piece of art (be it a painting, poetry, a song etc.) there has to be some mistake because evil spirits escape through that mistake and thus the art is blessed!

Always a pleasure and that's much better reason for artist hicups haha. Personally I don't believe in mistakes when doing art, beauty, what ever you wish to call it. The end result should be something magnificent as long as you wish it to be.

Ofc I didn't mean deliberate mistakes and I always aim for perfection (if that's even possible ;) but mistakes do happen (no 'undo' in handwork!) and after years of relentless proverbial self-lashing which was getting a bit too much, I have learned myself to allow them occasionally, if the drawing otherwise has values I'm happy with - kind of values I know I couldn't duplicate if I re-did the drawing. I work so much on an instinct and improvisation, you see. Numerous are the occasions I have re-done drawings, even up to five-six times, but reverted back to the first one and decided it's the best, most 'true', if you catch my drift. So there. I don't know if I made any sense :P

I understand what you mean and you make the perfect point. If there is one thing I've learned in my years of art, it's a push forward, constantly. I'm not a instinct type person, but you pretty much hit the nail on the head, art is almost the matter of not thinkinking, just seeing creating what's infront of you.

You've made perfect sense to me.
