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