I was looking at this drawing, admiring it, but can I throw two cents of advice in? I'd get rid of the pillow (?) shape in the bckgd, and the black too, while you're at it. I think it would stand much stronger on its own.
That's a very good point, Hugo. I actually debated whether or not to ink in the pillows myself. I finally decided I should because of the odd reclining position she's in. Obviously, I made the wrong choice. Nyuck, nyuck, nyuck.
