There is a lot I like about this piece, except for the rendering of her feet.
I like the concept and mood.
I like the colors and shadows.

But those club feet and stubby toes are a disaster.
And what kind of a whiskey bottle is that ? Why is it square ? It should at least look like a familiar brand of whiskey or something.

So even though I like it I could never get past those major faults.

Not addressing any of your other problems, but that's pretty obviously a Jack Daniels bottle. I know, they can be hard to spot, since no real whiskey drinker ever drinks Jack.

Jack is pretty much glorified SoCo at this point. They keep lowering the proof and upping the sugar.

Then the rendering of the bottle is almost as bad as the rendering of the feet.
This piece almost works. The drawing is just too crude to pull off the attempt at sexiness.

This is a sexy foot...

Thats a sexy foot? Those toes look like they are fingers and could hold that bottle of jack themselves.

i like the print and would seriously think about picking it up, but i agree completely, the first thing i noticed was the stubby toes and it kind of bugged me. maybe it hasnt been printed yet and theres still time to improve.
