ouch. I resemble that remarkOriginally Posted by nausicaaBrenna, that sketch is *excellent*. I mean it. The only thing I would suggest for it is perhaps to play up that contrast between the light and the shadows - maybe do a bit more shading to give your subject and the overall mood of the piece more intensity.
I noticed there are a lot of new poems being posted here. Good job, everyone! Just want to say, however (even though this is not a forum for critiques ) that, when writing poetry, it's useful to consider different things: rhyme, meter, stanza, and imagery, etc etc. Good poetry often encompasses more than just stream-of-consciousness writing, good poetry avoids cliches and strives to be...y'know, innovative with language...poetic. Syntax and punctuation are also important to most poets, despite what one may deduce from reading e.e.cummings.
Just a thought.
