In my opinion, the placement of the diagonal lines takes away from the interesting group of 3-d images you have below them. It's kind of cutting the image in half. I'd like to see more of the 3-d stuff, and less of the stripes above the diagonals. Simply put, I think if you move the diagonals up towards the top left corner some more to show off some of the 3-d stuff, it might be a little more interesting. Just my two cents.
You're probably right.
But I do think there is something to be said about the 50/50 thing. its a very "static vs. dynamic" statement. and not only that but the motif also continues with the circular dealies in the middle.
substance abuse: if you had known what argument you were making in these, i would have given it a 7 but unless thats the case, i also give it a 6
very good attempt but dont expect or get used to people saying that.
...also, don't just quit on this. keep working on this image.
