Art advice I'm trying to work on myself. I've always had trouble figuring out what level of detail is best, and I think this is a pretty good rundown on what makes a good detail piece versus a bad one.
(I'm also having to work on thinking of the drawing as an abstract thing instead of a representational thing; I tend to want to err on the side of "more realistic," to the point that it's hard to tell what's supposed to be going on. Not the best plan ever.)
Also on Dreamwidth. If you feel like commenting there, go for it. ( other people went for it.)
