A Loving Heart by DJDesco A Loving Heart by DJDesco
"A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge."
-Thomas Carlyle

Created with Apophysis, finalized with PS CS5.

Special thanks to rl2wAters for the awesome critique and inspiration for the final text placement.
I find the creative use of such a trite object as a heart very appealing in the sense of warmth that it gives off. Your use of color choice created a well balanced contrast of a silvery hue to almost make it glow like fire which also adds to that sense of warmth. I definitely think the over all shape adds interest because it is NOT a heart, and this is good because then you would be a very predictable artist, and that is never an artist's goal!
I also think the texture this piece provides was very well thought out. It almost looks like the inside of an actual heart, the very organ itself.
I think if I had to change one thing about it, it would be the words in the corner. their color distracts from the rest of the piece and placement is off. the placement is CENTERED...but off. Maybe if it were faded into the background, just anything to make it less pronounced.
Your inspiration is clear for everyone and your work looks cleanly planned and though out. Well done!
