extraordinary composition... white can't be without balck and vice-versa... just like in a couple: he can't be without her, and she would not live without him... :heart:

Personally it looks like the figure in white is going to kill the one in black or something...
o.o
Still a very pretty piece.

I think I'm noticing a trend where, in a couple drawing (such as the Longbodys) the man tends to be black, the woman white. Maybe because it just makes sense. The gloves. . . hmm, donno, but makes me a bit on-edge about whatever relationship these two have. I actually disagree with those who say the man's head should be lowered: as it is, it keeps the sharp black/white division. Again, a very stunning piece.

Well, in The Longbodys the woman is black too, but yes it's probably true. It is something of a tradition in art to make men's skin darker than women's.

And yeah, I don't think people are getting what I was trying to do compositionally.

This painting is [link] I would love to know the meaning.It seems that the two couples have hidden sercerts within the gloves.But I just want to hear your side of the story.

Indeed. Although my particular inspiration is also a secret.

Nice work, the image has a good flow to it. Great use of the simple grayscale and the pattern on the darker side of the background looks good. And I'm a big fan of the dotted line :) Here it looks very soft and ethereal :+fav:

I like this piece, it is very gentle.
The first thing i thought of when I read the title is masks (As in - masks in our personal relationships, hiding yourself from the one you are supposed to love. I don't know what i thought of gloves as a substitute for masks... ). When i looked at it again i thought of the phrase "To take off the gloves", which added a sense of hidden violence to the piece.
It is very interesting visually too - I like your style.
I do, however, agree with the comment on the balance - I also think the characters should be located lower.

Keep up the good work.

Sometimes it's best when they don't.

The cropping creates creepy menace and a little confusion - but I suspect that's the intent.

I don't know if it's intentional but woman's head is little cut out of the picture. the cut out of man's head doesn't disturb very much but there's some empty space on the bottom so the overall picture is little out of balance (in my opinion).

still, definitely +fav :)

Nice. It has a definite Erte feel.
It's a little confusing to look at, at first. I don't know whether that was intentional though.

I like this variation on the dance theme. The intimacy of the partners is really emphasized in the way the hands wrap around the contours of the bodies. I really, really like this, John.
