Yes... I am proud of this.  The scan isn't very good, but whatever.  It's just an abstract tree in pencil crayons we had to do for an art assignment.  Oh, yes, it is supposed to be off centre on the black! Tongue

I really love this. I only have 2 small little itty bitty stipulations with it.

1. the bottom right hand corner.. just make that root a teeny bit thicker or the orange part next to it a teeny bit wider.. it just hits the corner .. and your composition is awesome.. and that's just bugging me XD

2. For the love of all things composition move it so the black is wider on the right side. Please. Please please please. Take white paper on the lfet and black paper on the right and you'll see how much better the whole thing balances when the blackground is on the right side.

I like it.

I don't know if I understood the PP properly - do you want the tree to be more centered? If so, I don't agree - I think it looks good being off-centered, it kinda fits the "crookedness" of the tree and fits with the entire feeling...

nevermind, I'm rambling. Either way, I like the tree very much.

no.. the tree shouldbe off centred.. but the other way. with the black on the left it looks like the composition is falling over and all the interest is on the right side. Putting all the extra black on the right makes it so the audience has to travel through the work.

Ok, I understand now and yes, I agree with what Teddybearbones is saying.

Thanks for all the nice comments, and the helpful tips.  I too have a few things I would change if I had the chance.  Also, when I positioned it on the black to begin with, I did try it on the other side, but I just wasn't a fan of it.  I dunno... I'm probably just weird that way.
