Did you deliberatley leave this piece less finshed than your other work? It's a very enigmatic approach to the theme, and if the sketch had been fully resolved in some ways it would have been more definitive and finite. I like the loose, natural feel to your lines. Nice work/.

Thanks Adam, Yes, I did leave it unfinished on purpose. I didn't want to "finish it". I rather liked it and especially for the theme...I didn't want to depict a stereotypical "witch" but rather a more ethereal being,... an eccentric working insidiously. I think it leaves more for the viewer to fill in. Although, I do have plans to play with the image in PS and experiment a bit more:)

Ooooh--lovely "evil" character! It's so understated--but so effective.
