I like this alot, especially the way you just used blacks for the faces in the closet, they look oily and shiney.

Im sry but i see nothing wrong with this picture at all. Abstract can be anything anyway you want it to be. Maybe he wanted to make it look this way. And also maybe he didnt want it to have a realism look to his art. Abstract dosnt have any rules apply to it and frankly i think he is an awsome artist and i think he is very talented.

okay if we use abstract expressionism, lets talk fundamentals. For there are no other tools for such. the composition needs work. your eye is drawn to the large black mass centered vertically near the top and pretty much stays there. you want the eye to move to relish each nuance of your lines, to enjoy or be disturbed by the entire picture. it looks ands feels top heavy. you tried to move the eye with the shadow, but this is way weak cause of the weight of the central mass vs the airy feel of the shadow. your use of the light blue only on the fringes. used properly you could have overcome the other major flaw by distributing some of this color within your central image as well. Instead it makes it worse. you have nice heavy bold lines, you dont seem to have a fear of putting a mark down. push this picture a little further, lets see where it goes. I can teach anyone capable of drawing a circle,cone and cylinder to draw realistically, but abstract is only mastered by first unleashing, then mastering ones self.

Aaron, contrary to what cdgraham said, I think that this piece of yours is truly amazing, even for one of your earlier works. Criticism is good, up until one point where it may get out of hand. No artist can make things better or worse. Works of art are how they are because that's how the artist thinks, and perceives the world in his or her own view. If I was Aaron, I would be VERY disappointed with cdgrahams comment about how my PERSONAL idea made something worse. It's your work people. Do things for yourself, not others. I love it Aaron, keep it coming!!

Whoever the crumb this cdgraham is, he seems to think pretty heighly of him/herself. Perhaps s/he knows what s/he's talking about, but I personally felt that the critique given was a bit belabored.

On to your picture: I find it very eyepleasing, in an abstract sort of way. The way you used light and dark is intriguing and beautiful, albeit the picture is a wee bit frightening as I believe it was intended to be. It must've taken hours to complete the closet.

I am no pro, so you may disregard this next bit as opinion if you wish: everything outside of the closet (mainly the light blue and the shadow) doesn't look as though you spent as much time and effort on them. The detail on the closet faces and stuff is absolutely superb, though.

Final rating: 2 thumbs up!^.^
