I get why they charge so much for couture now

So i think i have finally settled on a process that conveys the emotions i want for my project (pinhole, embroidery and encaustic [it isn't encaustic in this image though]) this image symbolizes hope. Im very excited with this new direction, any thought on size, keeping in mind that this took a solid 12+ hours to stitch and its a 8x8 and i don't want to have to do something ridiculous to dip them in wax (unless you know of somewhere that would let me fill large tubs with wax)

I think this is a much more successful direction you are taking. Compared to what you showed at the last critique, this image is a lot less literal and able to convey a multitude of emotions without force feeding your idea to the viewer.

Good job Halli!

I like this direction better as well. Though, I would like to see the body more integrated with the background, instead of just being an object in front of a pattern. The outline of the shoulders, especially the left one, just look odd to me, like a jagged photoshop layer that ends abruptly. Maybe if the string appeared to be attached to the figure or something? If that makes sense...

This is fuckin' awesome!!! I think 8x8 would be a good size since you are dealing with encaustic. I also like the use of pinhole giving your images a more soft focus and unknown of you exact shape. I felt like some of you earlier images you posted seemed to forced and way to defined. Keep it up!
