The use of maps and distant earth in some of these really adds to the meaning. I would love to have a coffee with you and discuss what inspired this series.

Well, in the meantime you can visit me in my Blue Featured Artist forum, I've actually started discussing this series, but have not yet gotten to the maps...

This one's great! Like the switch in the flyer's direction. The upward motion has something very "uplifting", almost like a jump for joy. Also like the white (tissue paper?) texture. It's like a mist or cloud the flyer goes through.

Thanks for your feedback! I'm wondering if it looks too misty, although I'm sure when I varnish it the tissue paper (yes, you guessed right) will probably darken a bit. Do you think t looks "finished"; I could add smaller flying figures...
To me it does look finished. I think adding more figures would make it too busy, especially since there's quite a bit going on in the background already (the rusty/yellow colors and the blue). And no, I don't think it looks too misty. You can still make out all the details of the picture. I really like it; like I said the upward flying figure does add a different tone to the picture.
Thank you again for your feedback! I think I will move on to varnish as the final step! If it really changes the final product, I'll repost it :) I love exchanging this way. Going beyond the usual compliments!
I'm really happy and glad that the feedback helps you!
