Oh my Goodness, @Stan Prokopenko !!! I love you SO much in this moment!!! I've been struggling with photographing my graphite work for sooooooooo long in my teensy Japanese room - just crazy! I had the angle info, but didn't even think about polarizing lenses or sheets - and probably wouldn't ever have gotten to the idea of combining them on my own. This is so wonderfully helpful. Thank you SO MUCH!!! 🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

Haha, you're welcome! The combination of polarizing lens and sheets is crucial.

I think it could be the part of the trapezius muscle that attaches to the scapula. It could look that weird, because the scapula pokes out and pushes this part to look that way. But I'm really not sure. Hope this helps anyway ;)

Yup I agree. To me that looks like the middle portion of the traps.

Hey everyone! As part of Lightbox 2021 this year I was able to get some pro artists together to do some portfolio reviews for you free of charge :) This list may grow during Lightbox, but so far we have @Tj Geisen, @Anthony Francisco, @Scott Flanders , @Tayler Olivas , @Antonio Stappaerts, @Christina Cornett, @Tyler James, and @Marco Bucci that will review the work that you submit. Feel free to post your portfolios between September 6th and September 12th for a chance to have your work reviewed. If you want to be a career artist this is an excellent chance to get feedback from others that are already succeeding in the field! Please remember to write a few sentences about your goals so our artists know what feedback to give and attach up to 10 images when you post. Thanks! Special Note: Posting does not guarantee a review by a certain artist or artists. This is also an open thread and artists will be popping in and out to leave reviews during Lightbox.

Hi. I may have got the proportions wrong. Not sure.

Necks are a bit long and rib cages flat, but overall great job. Nice clean lines and forms. Good gesture. 👍
