Thank you for respecting this :thanks:

This is a commision from my Friend Frida of her when she was ten. She's at a playground laying down in thoes...
what is it called? Well you know thoes nets made by chain in the playground towers :)
I got happy with this drawing, I hope you like it :happybounce:
I wanna say thanks to Frida, she came up with the deviation title. I suck at coming up with names xD

materials used:
- Graphite pencils
- Black pastelpencil (only for the background between the net. Frida and the net are all graphite.
Because this is a commission based off a previously existing image I decided not to grade 'Vision' as I normally would but, instead, considered it 'Composition'. Whereas 'Vision' implies some sort of artistic vision this is hard to accomplish when one must recreate something. So, in regards to composition, I find this piece to be very strong.
The aforementioned problem exists when considering 'Originality'; because the artist was asked to recreate something there is no opportunity to really make it their own. I decided on four stars instead of a neutral three stars because I feel like the artist used their style to their advantage: though their subject was predetermined the artist manipulated their media in their own unique way.
In regards to 'Technique' I was neutral because I thought there were a few elements that remained underdeveloped such as the metal netting behind the subject, the middle values in the subject's face, the subject's hair, etc. Although I thought the artist could have taken some license with these items, I was not privy to the original image and so I do not know the quality of the image. It could be that the original image was blurry and small, in which case, the artist did a miraculous job in creating what texture is present and supplementing values where there may have not been any.
As far as 'Impact' I split the difference between the composition and the technique because, ultimately, the composition is very well balanced but some darker values would have increased the work's overall impact.
What do you think?
