Thanks for the critique! I agreed totally about the broken rectangle size and font after you mentioned it.
i would change the find edges, emboss fx.
Actually, it was two layers, each “Grain Extract.” Which is, I guess, what an emboss effect is.
edit: i just went to you website and read what your work is about: go to
and check out the prints there.
You might consider hosting your stuff on faemalia.com. That Yahoo! site is Really Really Slow. Well, maybe it’s just a bad fibre day through the Atlantic or something… I’d really like a few more artists’ works on faemalia.com, especially by… you know… educated artists such as yourself.
when you pay attention to the line quality and how only few lines create a string sense of erotic you can understand my comment about the embos filter thing.
Of course, what you’re really saying is “don’t use an emboss effect, but rather an edge detection effect.” But no matter, right you are. I went through the process, rather than just apply an edge effect. I increased the contrast and brightness, then eliminated the saturation on those layers.
Thank you so much for your critiques. Anytime someone says something about my composition that actually makes me go open up the XCF and start modifying it is a good time. I really appreciate your comments, and I think I have a better image because of it. I’ve posted the modified versions.
You can see both versions here for comparison.
