This needs to be made better and I know it's not done but I'm completely stuck here :( Where can improvements be made in this?

I think it looks fantastic already. You should definitely continue to add subtle hints of color. Is this a watercolor?

I'm not sure I still think it needs some fixing it just doesn't feel complete :? I used a calligraphy pen for the black lines then did a grey watercolor wash and the rest of the color is soft pastels.

This is a very talented piece! You can rub some faint pastel color into the large white areas which will make it complete. I can't wait to see this one done.

Keep it up.

Very unusual!

I agree with Karen in that some colour could be added.

Also, maybe you could do something with the large circle shape at the top of the painting.

Out of interest do you have a title for this artwork?

Great stuff!

I haven't come up with a title just yet but maybe once its finished I'll have something in mind. I've worked on it a bit and I'll try to put up a picture of it later today. I've added some more color to it but I'm unsure of what to do with the large circle just yet. I'm also trying to use color to get a good balance to the composition so your eye doesnt get stuck anywhere.
