    And apparently others agree with you. I still find it very surprising though that 'B' didn't get any votes.

    It's relatively flat, and seemingly more technique-oriented than with a composition in mind.

    Well the other two definitely have strong composition. That's for sure.

    I chose A.

    Did you draw all of them? If so, you have a pretty diverse talent.

    I disagree with you entirely on that.

    Yes, indeed. To me, it's hard to compare something with very sharp definite edges as being more 'finished' than something with softer tones. They're in two separate categories in and of themselves in my eyes.

    The images are both straight forward in their deliverance. To me, 'B' sung more because it was unfinished seeming.

    The Sax is a common element used in blues and jazz, and specifically it's solos represented a lot when it came to that genre of music. Sax's are normally shiny, with definite edges and very obvious details so a straight portrait of it would be a simpler task than what I think this piece achieved here. It's soft, with a charcoal medium, and reminds one of rain, of lonely back alley hide-outs, and of bittersweet music. The few glints of light along it all seem to show hope and a sort of being 'at peace' through all of the unfinished and rainy edges of the entire piece.

    This may not be what the artist had in mind at all while doing this sketch, but this what the piece brought out in me. While A was absolutely beautiful, and clearly showed craftsmanship as well as a clear understanding in art.. It simply didn't invoke symbolism the way portrait B did for me.

    I had explained this to Sunshine as well. Thank you to the author of it, it was very well done.

    B looked great, soft and subtle, which made the shape stand out. I liked the technical composition of A though, it got my vote.

    Toss up between A & B for me, music won the day.
