So I'd like you folks to help me out. There's nothing like the wisdom of the crowd, right? Please look at this painting and its closeups below then give me your feedback in the comments section. Tell me what you like or don't like about it, and why. Tell me how I should improve it. If you want to keep your comments private, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I may or may not use them, but I will value them, whatever they are.
I'm not going to give you many details about the painting because I don't want to influence your response. I will tell you that I'm going to submit it to a rather large competition next weekend, and your feedback could be very valuable.
Part 2 of this painting is nearing completion. It is a mirror image of part 1 but features two female characters instead of two males. Together the two will form a diptych, or "two paintings as one."
Thank you for your time. I look forward to your feedback.
