Well, it has to be said, this is a lovely lettering work!
I really like the technique you used here: it gives a very tridimensional effect and it looks very clean and simple at the same time. The mix between the striped texture and the dots for the shadows works really well, and also the different angle of the stripes for each word helps a lot in making them separate and well-legible. The use of black for the "cut" part of the words gives a nice 3d effect to it. I also like the outlines, they've a good flow (there's some imprecision, but that's normal).

The only tthing I don't like much is the angle of the photo, just because the perspective looks very strange like that (the piece of paper is larger on the right than on the left), I'd rather have the perspective bottom-up than right-left, and generally no perspective is even better to me...

Very good job nonetheless! I wish you to find someone to dedicate this to! ^^

Wow, that's just a great doodle! The word fits the shape very well, and the details are lovely. I admire how much patience you put in this, and the result prove it: the lines are clean and you also made a good shading. The random dots on the heart also make a rather nice effect, and I appreciate it :)
However, I wonder what's that union of dots at the right: is it supposed to be a shade? Then, you should have added more dots, and maybe also some others on the heart to regulate the light/shade source.  Besides (this is more a proposition than a piece of advice): what about adding some more details around the shape?
Great anyway! Keep up these amazing artworks!

I found this deviation through ProjectComment/#projectcomment
I really like the stippling you've done. It gives the piece a nice texture. Fitting the letters into the heart was also a nice touch. The thing I would suggest for improvement is to maybe bend your L a bit less next time. Right now, it looks close to a C. It's pretty obvious that it is not a C given the rest of the image, but as love is a strong emotion, it seems that having your L more strongly defined would really add to your piece. Overall though, very neat design!

Hello I am commenting on behalf of :iconprojectcomment:.

What what a creative piece of artwork you have here.  I see that you have worked with pen before and you can tell that you are extremely comfortable with it.  Your line work flows very smoothly and you are very good at varying your line thickness.  However , I do feel that the  "V", especially towards the bottom seems to blend in with the cross-hatching of the heart. Maybe a little thicker there and the "V" would have popped a little better.

Also, I liked how you worked the word love into the same shape as the heart more or less.  Very nice job.  The only other thing I might suggest would be to make the shadow darker, it seems to sparse.  I wouldn't go solid with the ink but I think a lot more dots would help.

Otherwise this is very,very cool.  You definitely have an aptitude for ink.  Keep up the terrific work.

I really love how you did this! You did a great job with the letters being 3d-ish at the end. especially the texture in the letters.
