Your proficiency is enough to illicit envy.
Well it's nothing special, but to me it shows that you can ACTUALLY DRAW. I can't tell you how many of these pieces I see on newgrounds that people love and it's clear to me that the artist can't draw at all. You have a strong grasp of depth, value, proportion, scale, progression yadda yadda. So kudos to you. I don't rate it higher because it's a purely technical piece, which makes sense given that it was for a life drawing class. So nothing against you, but you'll need some creativity for that fifth star.
Not sure what it is... but I like it.
This is the single most beautiful piece I've seen on newgrounds...
