Default Asking for feedback

Im self taught thus far, I am saving to attend classes soon but for now Im drawing and engraving anything that will fit onto my jank homemade vise (also planning to replace very soon). For now I know my lines need to be smoother, my points of the leaves Im having a difficult time determining if I want them to taper to the outside or if i want background and the taper to create to the inside.
I think i just answered my own question. I need to pre-determine my layout before cutting. Im open to any and all feedback
I feel at home with my Classic “Steve I want to thank you again, your hand piece and sharpening jig has completely changed my life” I actually feel confident that I can reach the level of quality that I imaging for myself

I think it´s quite cool with a nice flow and leafs that looks "alive". Very often I see things that looks so learned from a book and you can see they do exactly that, and only that.. Personally I think drawing and obviously make things fit into a certain space, is some of the more important.

I´m not sure how to explain it in a good way in english, but looks like you have a good eye for flow and weight.

I like it :-)
