It's horrifying yet beautiful picture that captures both the harsh and destructive nature of war and the child like innocents we loss as we grow up.

First off, The piece is wonderful. It completely grabbed my attention. Second, the title is perfect. I get annoyed when people get more deep with the title then with the actual work of art its self. I think Its beyond original and the detail gives it the perfect effect to make it so wonderful. True the idea of war vs. love is very simplistic, but how you presented it is on a whole new level of its own. And your technical skill is also something to brag about. I love it and am very jealous that I didn't think of something unique like this.

My biggest comment is on the color contrast. This is probably the best black and white contrast I've ever seen in a drawing. Not many people may notice, but the light and dark blends so well together. At first I didn't notice it, but when you hold the computer far away you see such a difference on the opposing sides. It's like two different drawings got melted into each other. Death and life, hope and despair, love and hate, kindness and cruelty. The color contrast made the piece work... without it the product wouldn't be as powerful. It was a little "already been done" but I think that is okay, all because of your technique and presence within the drawing... good job.

And in the last sentence I also meant to say execution, along with technique and presence :D

I love that it's just inked and shaded without any color. It adds to the weight of the meaning behind the image. Overall, it's a fantastic picture, and I love it to death, but even the greatest pictures could use a few suggestions.

1, The way that War is looking down at Peace seems off. As in, it looks like he/she/it is looking over Peace's umbrella, rather than down at the girl.

And, that's all I really have to say is wrong with the pic. ^_^

Just as a suggestion tho, you could've added in some barbed wire, tangled around War's feet or something, and maybe some more...just...something to him/her/it. It feels a little off. But none the less, you capture the emotion in the image perfectly!

Keep up the fantastic work!

thanks for the crit.
i don't want to sound like i'm avoiding anything, but i drew war looking off of peace intentionally - i wanted him to be looking off into the distance, perhaps the direction of the dove. it gives a sort of disillusioned/distracted feeling. thanks for the suggestions. :]

Aaaah...see, if I knew it was intentional, it'd change my mind. But still; I love your work! Keep it up! ^_^
