No Title Yet- In Progress Still But Mostly Done

The things that are important in this painting: cell phones, signs with rules on them, the trash can that's not for trash. It's too cliched for me to say "I'm developing an artistic vocabulary" but these certainly are the images repeating themselves in my work lately. They all remind me of Japan. For those who are curious, the green banner says "Future."

Hi Sue, Just checking in on your work ect. I like "No Title Yet", any words of critique I have are the consistency of shadows value, direction, and color.
Not so much value. In the middle you have a nice saturated blue shadow on the fence and a black shadow on the smoking dude. Makes the fence look translucent. That does not strike me as unlikable. I guess the only thing that really stands out to me, is the lack of shadow from the fence behind the fox. There is a small shadow, but i feel like there could be more shadow from the fence and building, since the shadows are so long. And a small amount of shadow cast on the cell talking rabit's right foot and leg.

Anyway if you have finished it :) love the expresions, on the characters.

Its Eli btw
