Color is an important part of a drawing, but if your not comfortable coloring, or if you prefer black and white, use shading instead. Kudos for great technique, though i do seem to see a lot of candy cane stuff for Christmas lately. Your simplistic design of minimal detail as far as the markings go worked magnificently, very well done. Overall i loved it and i think you did wonderful! I give it a four and a half out of five stars! Keep up the good work! If you wish for any help on shading, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you for the Critique! I just wanted to load up the Work In Progress because I haven't really been active lately due to classes. I still have a long way to go on this drawing with color and shading but that will all come later once I have the time to smooth out the lines and finish adding to the overall image.
