I've had this pic for an avatar for a bit. Just thought I'd solicit some opinions!
I'm a sucker for kids. I love this little boy's pose, and the way he's holding onto his feet. I think you could use some light on the lower part of his face, maybe with a reflector of some sort. I think I have that same background, and it's all wrinkled the same way. What we do, because we have the non-washable kind of dyed muslin is hang is straight when not in use and then we got clips to pull taught on the stand. I think the wrinkles here compete a bit with the boys head. I'd love to see some more of your portrait work, well done!
Edited to correct typos, brain is working faster than fingers this morning, or perhaps the other way around?
I agree with needing more light at the lower part of this face. Around the area where his hands and feet are, too. Other than that I really like it. The pose is great.
