That's really amazing! I like how you have the swirls of colors all around her, and how you've encorporated swirls on the person.

like omfg HAI kthx plz. :wave:

..since the formal introduction has been taken care of :| , to explain for myself: you left a comment on a comment of mine , and so I came to check you out (upon returning from summer break off of DA) and noticed your journal which struck me very positively... esspecially the "no self portraits bit" :roll: , and of course the latest and the featured deviation, were sufficient to inform me that you have quite a color educated sense of design so I pursued further.

I chose to comment on this particular deviation, among the predominant work commisioned web layouts and flyers, since it was an independent creation, leaning towards the vector art which I am a big fan of.

Unfortunately, I don't have time to open up another tab and look for the reference photo used, since I don't find it essential for appreciating this piece, and hence there will only be noted impressions deviod of all comparisons to the original.

I've always associated the peculiarity of vector outline, with geometrical rigidity, but here, eventhough the solidness of form is preserved, it has also been given a lightweighted , organic quality, which makes it all the more reminiscent of the theme depicted - steel breeze.

The stylized forms of human figure, sun and the wind have such playfulness and underlying joy to them, thus epitomizing all a summer should be about.

Truly loving the color selection, which is but one of the most important aspects in any design related medium.

I am not among the "good job" "keep it up" people, so take the following with no grains of salt, when I say : you should definitely do more in this direction as it seems to suit you.

And most of all, please, do not feel the need to comment back, coz that kind of "i'll scratch ur back if u scratch mine" system, is among the things dissabling DA to be what it was conceptualized for.

Enjoy the rest of 2004, and I might see you around the playground ;)

OMG you are so nice!!!!! So beautiful !!!! (Courtesy: ...Deception...Demise..)

Always a pleasure to read your comments. Esp the meticulate manner in which you use links ( Im still too ignorant/lazy for that).
Thank you for the feedback.

I dont venture into criticizing the self portraits bit, since my ID and avatar would disapprove the theory completely.

I shall keep a close watch on you from now on. I have a feeling that it might be worth it ;)

OMG I am not nice mmkay :|

lol

I appologize for the late reply... i'm bad with time management so my message center gets very hectic.

...and just what this "temporary thumbshare forum paranoia switch" might be :confused:

Linking is utmost fun and makes u look spliffy and too kool for skool...*cough* i mean Da :|

[a href="http://www.here goes the link path.com"] this would be ur witty text to appear in the form of clickable hyperlink [/a]

and the only wisdom is to replace all the "[" and "]" with "<" and ">".

if you do it at least 2 consecutive times, and get it to work... it'll become second nature for you, and then u can join the masses of l33t html-ers 8-)

stay positive :salute:

I love the idea you have with this. It really brings breeze to life. The design is fantastic. The swirls and twirls to the breeze, and the way you did it, just makes this picture perfect.
