I actually finished a drawing - a rare feat for me lately :D

This is for my school's autumn critique, themed "border / borderless". This is an optimistic view on the boundaries of humanity: our time is limited, but what we achieve in that time is up to ourselves. More or less consciously each of us sets our own boundaries. A case could be made for a negative approach as well, and I intended to draw that too, but couldn't do it for this critique, still plan on doing it later. My goal from the beginning was to create an image with simple, yet powerful symbolism. Is it a success or is it lacking? I would really appreciate your opinions on this.


I can't say that I didn't have enough time for this piece, but parts of it are rushed and I think I could do better but, no excuses this time. All comments, questions and feedback are very welcome! Thanks for looking :)

Amazing. The strokes are astonishing, the idea is brilliant, and the innocence in children is shown right here. Leave it to the young to discover the joys in every situation. The wood is not missing a single detail, and I'm quite glad you also paid great detail to the background. The only negative feedback I have is on the upper half of the photo. Where the sand is falling down isn't very realistic. Sand doesn't really fall like that. However, the sand itself is covered in little details, so it's okay. Anyways.... your attention to detail is utterly amazing and your obviously very talented. Kudos to you, Senpai. :)
