Lets Discuss

Cool illustration and I like that it's framed in a square. The unfortunate part for me is the hole in the lower-left hand corner.

Thanks for the comment Sam. The hole is actually negative space that represents the guys shoulder. If I extended the hatching down he wouldn't have a shoulder. Thought that might look weird. I can see what you're saying about the square not being complete but I thought with the rest of the image and the text beneath the square is still suggested. Would be interested to hear other feedback...

I understand what it is. I'm just wondering if there's a very subtle way to hint at the corner there without filling it in with hatching. Perhaps a line or two from his jacket like the other shoulder?

Cheers for the suggestion. I'll give it a go and see how it looks

Updated with a couple of shirt creases in the bottom left corner to complete square shape.
