Great movement. It had the potential to get a little busy but your subtle color choices keep it controlled. Love the continuous line quality. Were these lines broken up or did you actually keep it connected? This is really amazing. Excellent work.
Well, the good news on that front is twofold. One, it resets after twenty-four hours. Two, the demand that regular web browsing has on upload speeds is far less than that on download speeds. No harm no foul as far as I'm concerned. Just... man, that's twenty-seven freakin' megabytes. All in one place. That must be, what, 16,000 X 10,000 pixels?

Oh, since you requested a critique: The right eye looks like it's too far right and its pure whiteness doesn't match the other. The back of the head and chest just sort of melt off into confusing negative space, though the way it frames the important elements may be worth it. The highlighting band of orange is great for the face, but brings attention to an unimportant part of the hand. Beautiful colors, excellent use of warm/cool contrast, perfect amount and placement of orange flecks elsewhere. The left eye is beautiful and conveys a lot of emotion. The ear and and lips also really work for me. As someone pointed out earlier, it is impressively clear. Hope that helps!
Oh gosh I hadn't seen this (I think you may have replied to yourself there). I really appreciate the feedback - some of the points raised I had already known (cough - eye - cough) but others, like how the band leads to the unimportant part of the hand, I hadn't thought of. Thanks a lot for taking the time to help me out.
Intriguing and brilliant. I love how you have overlapped so many shapes and colours and yet still kept the figure distinguishable. Is it just me or is he about to punch someone, from the position of his fist and head?
Fascinating... the more I look at it, the more fascinating it is. With just a few lines you kept the outline and added so much more to it that the face should have disappeared but no, it's there. Wowsers.
I left this out of the description, but it's worth noting that the line work had been around for three years - three years before I added the color. I never quite threw it away, even after it got stepped on. What a good thing I didn't! (And what a good thing it somehow became less stepped-on, over time!)
I honestly love this so much! Would you please explain to me how to use watercolor pencils.... :/ I feel dumb asking. But I have some, and now that i see how beautiful they are, I really want to use them.
