First off, what an amazing piece of work! Congratulations.

Now, onto the critique.

First off I absolutely love the composition articulated in this piece. The two characters balance the piece perfectly without having to conform to complete symmetry. You allow them to play with eachother as well which works quite well.

The colours and the lighting you used are stunning. I love reflective mix of colours on the floor. It's a piece in which the colour adds the depth to an otherwise simple idea, which makes it all the more brilliant.

I love the mystic that the story tells. Are these two versions of the same people? Are they different people? What are they doing here? How did they get here? What are they talking about? It all draws me in and makes me think and wonder.

Though the concept and idea are simple, they are made complex with your use of light and colour. It's a stunning piece and I'm glad it's received the attention that it has, as it certainly deserves it. Great Work!

It kind of looks like someone viewing their alternate personality. As if they were looking in a mirror, and their reflection was looking back.

I'm glad you liked it. I enjoy looking at your art. it's a style I wish I could reach. Easy, flowing, and smooth.

It's a young woman who's lost touch with herself. She feels as though she can't really feel anything, as if she can't think. So she sits down with herself for a reflection with tea.

One part of her feels that she needs to fix herself, but she's too scared to look. The other part of her thinks she's being ridiculous and just needs to grow up.

The feeling it gives me is loneliness, because there only seems to be one person having tea here.'s like having tea with yourself...talking to yourself? Ha x'D The figure on our left also has a dejected pose, and on the other side, that figure is pouring out the other half is like, 'who cares' kind of thing. The colour scheme is also a cool one, so it reinforces that idea for me. Not too sure about the curtains, but it makes an interesting composition.

Good work and nice lighting~
