oh oh oh oh i just love that 'artificial' perfect-NESS of it, im not goot with compliments, but hey, i waited through a annoyingly sloooowwwwwww (allmost stagnant) loading of this page, just to add the comment yo!
now im gonna go smash up that wireless box outside.
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.
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
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.
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).
