Neville (nwiz25) - Great to see you! Thanks a lot for your support, comments and critique To answer your question... Yes I can certainly do a combination. In fact, that is exactly what is going to happen I am going to pull the original back out from underneath all the later versions of my experiments. It's great to know what appeals to everyone because the input sure helps the decisive process along I greatly appreciate the input! As I move further along I hope to achieve something you touched on; being able to have the viewer grasp the meaning without having to read the background story. I hope to provide an updated visual soon.

Have a splendid day! Good to have you along for the ride.

Greetings Hiun,

Very deep, waxing poetic with quite a story and in the end I get the point! Your image has great soul and heart! It is refreshing to see an artist that is not afraid to blend technologies and media, way back when (long ago) some photographers got all upset when one altered a photograph. It is great to see this work unfold.

hey Hiun, thought I should also drop my 2 cents here if you don`t mind
first of all I like the idea alot; in the very first moment I thought it`s perhaps too much of a stereotype, but after I read your story I have this "yeah that`s cool"-grin^^

I liked your first version the most, the two bodies in this huge white bed, the bedcover waving around this wonderfull focal point, the red heart would come out really nice that way I think...very stylish and a bit of understatement

keep it coming man

Mathias (guterrez) - I accept your 2 cents, and I am now 2 cents richer I certainly don't mind at all, infact you were a great help. My biggest concern was straying too far away from the initial feel of the image, but the vast amount of white disturbed me. Now that I have got my canvas dirty I can think more clearly. I am more leaning towards pulling back to the intial, but still leaving traces of all the buildup I have done which should enhance the depth. I need to complete the figures too, I think that would help a lot in knowing how far to push and pull the paint around the focal point. You opinions are always welcome.

Much appreciated Mathias! Thanks a million and 2 cents! haha

Hey there. Thanks again for your comments! I really like what you've been doing with this piece. I think the imagery is very dramatic, and you're definitely communicating the ideas and emotions you've described. I also like the colors and textures you're incorporating into the image; it's very different from other paintings I've seen here. I'm curious to know how you're going to address the male figure (painting wise) or if you're going to leave him as is?

Megan (VitruvianMango) - Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me. I am glad you like the direction in which it is going. To answer your question... I won't leave the male as is, I am going to fully develop the figure, but he won't be as prominent as the female. After I fully develop the figures I will then be able to better relate them to the rest of the image. I am not able to see all the options available to me because the figures aren't fully developed; so that will be my next step. I can always subtract later on, but I best get my main subjects done soon

Thank you so very much for your kind comments and for supporting me Megan.
I wish you the best of productivity and a fantastic week!

Poetic, thoughtful and mesmerizing work, I'll definitely stay suscribed to this thread.

As for suggestions, I think you are on the right track by searching for a balance between the first version and the more dramatically colorful ones. It would be a pity to lose completely either the intimacy of the first version or the drama of the others.

Just my opinion, of course.

Tiziano (Thaldir) - Thank you so much for checking out my thread Tiziano, I greatly appreciate it. You are so right about it being a pity if I were to lose completely any of either versions. I am finding it difficult to narrow it down, mostly because I keep finding new interesting elements and in addition I am having so much fun with the process. Today was supposed to be my day to relax but here I am working on the piece You know how it is, once you start...... hahaha. Good thing is that I have found what it is I have been looking for (good thing I didn't relax afterall). I hope to share it soon.

Thanks again for the encouragement and I wish you a great week!
