Love is a poisin that we never notice... Never fall if the one you love hates you in the heart... If he takes blood and other things to let you live, he is the one that is true...

i do love what i see here, what really catches my attention is the strokes in the background that brings forth the illusion of energy flowing around the main subject. the coloration is a wise choice for the theme of this piece. the browns capture a earthly atmosphere (accompanied by the greenery of the thorn vines and muddy pink/reds of the roses, very nice combo). also what connects in my mind, is that Love is the main powerful earthly feeling that is both beauiful but deadly. i believe it was that has captivated in this piece.

i feel the main emotion points here, is in the eyes and in the hands with the roses. the hands have a language of their own. i feel when i look at them, that is person has the hands of a child, innocent most of the time but also can't wait to get their hands dirty (the scratch marks of the hands and the sting/unwashed feeling of the hair also play in this conclusion). the blank hypothesized stare into the roses stands out with the emotional connections through the soft white of the eyes (scary and yet pleasantly innocent and yet sad) and soft smile.

one thing i forgot to mention, i also like the highlights in this picture contrasted to the darks along with the continuation of texture through out, leading along the flowing imagination of the viewer's mind. i like your style, a Tim Burton slash Jeff Thomas (is what it reminds me of, simply awesome in my opinion). well done! i look forward to more :D

Thanx! Great art. Dholls are always good!

If dholls could speak, no doubt they'd scream; but I didn't want to become human!

I love the way the lines on the face are so harsh and sharp, but the roses are soft-looking.
