"Well done! I had someone who looked just like this for many years. I could almost feel the fur. Thank you so much for sharing. What's the dog's name?"

"Love it. I like the atmospheric perspective very much. I think the seagull is too close to the centre and would like it off to one side or another. Excellent work! I wish I could do something as good."

Maybe I should consider the warm/cool hue balance and layout in the design. …See More
