Reviews for "The Lovers"


I love your art and to be honest I really can imagine your art (especially this one) in a museum! Its just that good! At least I would put it in a museum if I was a curator.

8. Wont they get sick if they stay naked in cold?
9. I still love your paintings
10. Didnt you put an apple?! How is that possible?!

MasterMerol responds:


1. No, the rope it's in the background and it's pulling the moon to sink it deep down in the water!
2. Heh, their legs are normal. She's not Dolly, but I'll recognise that she looks a bit like her.
3. Yeah!
4. Yes!!
5. Yup!
6. Yes she is!
7. I don't think so.
8. Yeah, but the world is about to end! It actually doesn't matter.
10. OMG! How could I?! Shame on me...

Among all that chaos...

I was about to comment on the twisted arm of the man and the strangely flat buttocks of the couple when I realized...

That's completely beside the point. You don't aim for realism.

Love the rough, strong colors of the background. And the girl's large eye, with long eyelashes...

This is, I supposed, a love story against an apocalyptic backdrop. "As the world came to an end, they embraced. Nothing else mattered... anymore..."

MasterMerol responds:

I wasn't aiming for realism, but I wasn't aiming for a twisted arm either!! I just failed on that. Not sure about the buttlocks, they look fine to me!

Heh, some guys said her eye looks strange, so thanks for liking it!

Pretty much what I was thinking on!


Holding on for death's embrace

A very poignant image, which certainly brings home a sense of impending disaster, combined with the sentiment that love is not bound by the mere rules of time. Though the couple may perish, their love will last forever.

Looking at the image, I was a little confused about the shapes and position of the male's arm. Looking at the way that my own arm looks, there would seem to be more space between where the bicep rejoins the line of that arm and the joint of the elbow. Correcting that would help the elbow itself to look less out of place at the back of the arm. With biceps that large, it might be in favour to bulk up the tricep a little to the rear of the upper arm, adjacent to the shoulder.

The female's lines are good and the piece is a little dominated by her gigantic eye, since below, there is not really that much detail to be taken into consideration.

What does raise a question in my mind is the lines around the crescent of the moon - is that some sort of Space Elevator that you have incorporated in there and possibly a chance for humanity's salvation?

MasterMerol responds:

Wow, thanks a lot for the great feedback on the guy's arm. I'm actually considering on getting a anatomy book.

Eyes are very important for me, and I know I already said this, but I like drawing girls with big eyes.

Heh, not at all! That's a rope pulling the moon to sink it deep down into the water!
