Um...happy Fourth of July? It's hard to even know what to say. This is fricking awesome, man! I am so glad to be introduced to your unique style. You really did know exactly what a real life heart looks like. I really think you have scientifically represented the chambers. It's the perfect metaphor for what's going on.

At first, I thought it was someone holding the heart. I know it is just suspended in midair or space or something. The fire at the top and ice on the bottom creates perfect contrast. This guy really is searching for love! I now notice the beautiful birds. This is wonderful, man!

YakovlevArt responds:

Hey thanks a lot for the kind words!
I really enjoyed making this piece, many sleepless nights and revisions lead to this. It's comments like this that keep me going and creating new pieces.

Cheers!

Absolutely fantastic work! The creativity in the layout alone is worth all 5 stars, but the excellence of the execution of the piece makes me wish I could give it 10!

YakovlevArt responds:

Aw, thank you.
I'm happy you like it!

Holy sh- did I not get to this piece too late I would have made it the showcase feature for sure! But, as it obviously deserves, it's been front paged on its own merit. I have nothing but admiration for thie piece and everything about it. Its color, composition, concept, and technical execution. Astounding. Added to favorites - for gods sake keep making art! :D

YakovlevArt responds:

Jazza, thanks a lot for the kind words. They alwasy mean so much coming from you. I understnd you get a bunch of PMs everyday, so no worries if you get to it late. I'm happy enough you got to it eventually =]
And hey, if you still want to show it on your show, that'd be ok with me, haha!

Damn, this is great

YakovlevArt responds:

Thank you!

This wasn't what I expected when I clicked the icon for this image. Needless to say I'm impressed.

YakovlevArt responds:

Haha, yeah I try not to expose what makes the overall image nice, in the thumbnail.
