Wow. That's really amazing. I like the first one because the color you used puts emphasis on the mood, which I'm guessing is sadness. Also, the fact you show more of the room helps add a loneliness feeling to the work.

The second one looks stunning. It feels like a calm place. I also like how you made the moon look closer. Very nice.

first- with the mirrors, it pretty much tells me that the lonelyness will keep going on and on. she will keep thinking of her loved one.

Second- i'm an addict to moons, so i automatically love it, lol. I love the wording, he saw the first one, he caught the second, but he caused the third, she really misses him. . ., I love it.

I'm going through some really rough times, so
I made these to kind of "vent" my emotions. I'm trying to find my
light. So ... Yeah. This is what comes out
of being bored and really sad. ^__^
Both have a story.
The first picture appears to be really depressing,
but ... She's trying to find her light. The
second picture ... She's walking
down the road of life. Prepared to fight.

The second one is totally awesome!!! I love how the ocean is going onto the checkerboard, and the moon is so close.

Title explains it all. I hate blue so much that I work with it the best. Makes since, huh? ^_^; So ... No real inspiration. Well ... Music. Depressing, sad, emo music. XD

I have a question. Is that you in the pictures? I'm just wodering.

The first one is really good. The fact that the room seems to surround you gives a sense of being trapped.

I really like the coloring on the second one. It's really good. I've noticed that you use a lot of dark colors, adding an atmosphere of misery and sadness to the work. I like this one better.

Inspiration? Two songs by the awesome Japanese singer Kaya [he rocks. He's the awesomest XD]. "Ouka ~Hyakkirappuhen" and "Hannya". Go check those songs out, by the way. >___>

"Spellbound Temptation"

"Escape to the S K Y"

I like the firefly touch in the first one. That and the waterfall add a mystic feeling to the work. The arch looks like a window opening up to the mystical world beyond it. But I think the arch should've been wider, that way one can see more of what lies beyond.

The second one is my favorite. The coloring adds an etheral feeling to the picture. It's also very different from your other works. This one is more brightly colored, which brings a happy tone to the work. I really like the flying ducks. It adds a sense of freedom to the work because they're flying, free of restraints. How do you get the moon to look like that. It's very elegant.

I really love the first one. The waterfall is beautiful. And the arch looks ancient. It's sort of mysterious.

Something bothers me about the person on the second one, at the arms. It looks like part of the person was cut away under the arm.

I like the sparkles in the second one, and the moon. The moon is so big! It looks very close.

They're both REALLY pretty. =)
