I kinda knew the split-screen effect was a bit confusing to the eye after I had finished the pic....but I'm soooo glad the reaction has been so favourable, thank you, Abigail Smile

Thank you so much, Abigail Smile

btw I think it was VERY daring of you to divide the composition like that with the background, but it was a fantastic call. It symbolizes the division between them very nicely, and the power of emotion between them keeps the eyes moving back and forth and prevents the picture from becoming static. (In short, niiicely done.) Wink

This is one of my favorites of yours so far... exceedingly nice, both technically and emotionally. Wow.

Your work is always so well done I never know what to say. But for me, here, it's the eyes of both. Loving the cp.

Superb, James. A very original take of a classical theme (and beautifully rendered as usual !). Smile

Another superb piece of work, James. The combination of human and beast is particularly effective, and he has such soulful eyes.

James, another incredible wonderful work! I love the soft skin tones of the beauty, while the beast sympolized his nature with the dark tones. GREAT WORK!!!

Art at its best.
