I think the main reason this piece and the other haven't been approved into the gallery is because of the red border. It looks unintentional and frankly distracts from an otherwise very well done image.

I really like the face but that red is just killing my eyes.  Take out the red its incredibly distracting and out of place.  The piece itself is great, it's almost picasso-esque with the mouth in that downard sort of flat position and the different sized eyes.

thanks man! glad you like it.

oh the dithering? well, its supposed to suggest the texture of sand/dirt. the idea was that the face is shown "buried" in the sand to indicate that their home is underground. I at first was going to do a regular gradient-type background around the face, but I wanted to make the background more specific.

impressive. reminded me of that octopuss looking character from pirates of the cirabean.

the only thing i felt let down the piece was the differing around the bottom edges of the piece. it was just really off putting.
