This is wonderful in so many ways! Light and shadows look amazingly vivid from far, and enlarged it's a fantastic line puzzle. I just can't stop zooming it in and out! :)

Composition is mostly the photographers handiwork. I guess that's what drew me to the photo in the first place. I just cropped it a little. But thank you for liking my shading ;)

Love the texture! It gives a great sense of motion.

Thank you! Funny, I've been concentrating so hard trying to make sense of a sketchy sketch I had done from a blurry photo that I completely forgot to think about stuff like motion. Happy it showed up on it's own accord :)

Fantastic picture! I love the combination of green and red in this and the strokes are just amazing. I love how you've overlapped them to make such a unique texture!
