Ah ha, you used painter. I first saw this on your website and was wondering how you'd gotten paint drips to be so narrow. It's really pretty though, and I can totally relate to the whole long-distance-can-only-talk-online-person-is-turning-into-text-on-a-screen thing. Love it. :]

“love in italics” has a great use of colors and symbolism. Just I recommend to play a little bit more with the text.
31090. Gorgia???

I like how the background is muted and layed back. Gives the feeling of peace.

The sideview of the dove seems a bit too daffey duck for the overall feeling of this work, It just seems a bitt overly cartoony. However the dove facing towards the viewer is very well done and beautifully helps to really show the feeling I think your going for :)

very sweet. i'm guessing 31090 is a zip code? i'm curious about the text block too!

but i love the "i love you in italics and in bold part." long distance relationships are tough. whoever your significant other is, they're lucky to have you :hug:

31090 is a birthday. i like to add illegible blocks of text to my graphics... its just something i do, you know. the "i love you in italics and in bold" was something i wrote to this person in an email. i guess thats about as real as we can get in long distance :depressed:

What's the significance of "31090"?

What does the left block of text say? Is it something to do with the piece? If so, maybe you could try enlarging is so that it's readable, but leave it translucent enough that we can still see the lovely background you painted?

And lastly, I'd like to see the birds outlines just a touch darker, if possible.

Remember, all my opinion. Art is subjective. ;)

thanks orph. 31090 is a birthday. the text on the left says a lot of stuff :P but its not meant to be read. i tend to add an illegible block of text to a lot of my images simply because i like the way it looks. i wasnt sure about the outlines of the birds, personally i still think they're too dark. but i figured someone would come along wanting to see them darker :) i appreciate the constructiveness of this comment though man. thanks!
