drawing1 by ~kamilsmala shows this artist's exquisite sensitivity for light and atmosphere. Busy linework defines every texture delicately, and the whole piece transmits a sense of reverence and classic beauty. (
Wow, just magnificent. Where did you learn to draw like that? You are unbelievable where portraits, figures and folds of massive fabric is concerned. How long have you been drawing of that calibre? Your work is mesmerizing and intimidating at the same time. Wow again.

Also, I hope you don't mind, but I used your drawing in my assignment for school, with appropriate citation of course.
Here is the critique:(Please provide an image of a two-dimensional design or work of art, which you believe makes use of contrasting value and/or texture to enhance the sense of depth and volume in the design.)
This drawing, done by Kamilsmala, renders a strong sense of depth and volume through use of tonal progressions and texture. The bottled up fetal position creates overlap between the traditional superior and inferior portions, this pushed with the value contrast between the two sections of the transverse plane creates a strong sense of depth and weight. The artist pays close attention to detail as he uses a classic style of sketching to show the many tedious features of the figure, including the knuckles, facial features, knees and feet. The texture used to create the folds and facets of the drapery help create strong flow lines that keeps the viewer’s eye wondering. The artist has as clear sense of perspective and weight. Though this isn’t a strong presentation of linear perspective, I feel that it is a strong composition that merits the effective use of value and texture to create depth and volume.
