Awaiting a Distant Love by Eroha Awaiting a Distant Love by Eroha
my submission for the "Be Fella's Valentine Contest", could've been better but my pc's been acting up lately (motherboard dying :(), hope y'all like it :)

inspiration from this piece [link]
[Edit]

WOW! :shocked: I WON 1st Place!!!!!

I'd like to thank everyone who :+fav:-ed, supported and wished me luck in this :D


[Edit]

As previously promised i have traced over the lines in matching colours to give a smoother full image, hopefully you'll all like it and won't mind :pray:,

when place original template over this lines seem still in their place so the piece is not violating the contest rules :)

This piece caught my eye, though I didn't know it was for a contest until I read the description. Congratulations on winning first place as well.

The light and dark tones of the colors, divided by the various shapes gives this piece a lot of charm. The contrast of the woman's red dress and hair work really well against the bright blue sky.

The variance of line thickness also works quite well. It gives some real definition to the many different parts of this piece.

Upon further inspection, I've also noticed a few hidden heart shapes which flow really well with the Valentine's Day theme.
What do you think?

Just so you know, this piece has been stolen and put for sale by art4love.com, I suggest you add it to the growing list of artists mentioned on a journal here: [link]
`alexiuss is putting together a lawsuit versus the owner of this site.

(You can see it on this screenshot of the site:[link])

That is unique and so clever. it reminds me of the way an image pixilates the more you blow it up. I know this must have taken a while but I can't see how it could get better- i think its sheer bliss.

What amazes me more is that you did it with a computer that is dying - you have real talent here and i am honoured and pleased you chose to share

I can really see why this pic won first place, I love it, its a simple looking design, but has a great composition and despite the nature of a mosaic-esque image with all the individual parts it comes together beautifully here. Also to add to that the fact you used a mosaic style sorta gives the idea that she's been waiting a while (which is making me think a story in my head =D)

Anyway top job dude :thumbsup:
