my first reaction to this was "wow", and that - even before i saw it full scale. the beautiful focal point of the warm-toned heart drew me in, and the well-rendered, gold-and-silver edged smoke curls kept the interest for a while. the textures work well to give the image depth and interest, the tones are synergistic, and the anatomy is not THAT messy either. of course it can be improved - but... i think it works fine as it is
all in all - great job. i enjoyed seeing this work.
