nice work indeed, speaks to the imagination a lot.
I also like the captions along with the imagery, which enhance the experience and would lead me to advise a small foray into the realm of poetry or short stories..

It's beautiful work in my opinion. I think I'm in love with it. I might even be in love with Lina for all I know. :wink:

I'm just really impressed with her talent and the way she sought us out after Mattias left both her and us hanging. The cover she did just made me appreciate her and the situation that much more.

Lina's work is absolutely breaktaking! I think my fav is the one called "Pain." You should consider her having a place in EVERY issue.

:D

Well, if you recall, Gorth wanted your art back in another issue so... Maybe we'll just alternate between you and Lina, every other issue.

Wow! Thank you all for your wonderful words! I'm so glad you all like it. :) A bit of a surprise to see "Pain" as a favourite, though. ^^

And to D. Sauzi, I'm glad that the text and pictures connect enough to enhance the experience. :) I have on occasion been writing some short stories and poetry in English. ^^ But I'm afraid the greater body of my current work is in Swedish.

And what is the proper response to your comment Joseph? Thank you? ^^

That is Ok, some of us understands a bit of Swedish :cool:

And yes, great images :haksthumbsup:

My favourite is "My Heart Adrift Upon the Sea". Maybe because I grew up at the sea.

I don't know about the tecnical options available on the e-zine, but I was thinking about something I wanted to suggest after the previous e-zine, like links to larger versions of those paintings. Just make sure that they are covered with copyright notices all over as people will steal an arm and a leg from an amputee on the net.

Hmm. Good point that.

I've thought about that actually, seeing it as a bit of a shame that the full size images aren't presented.

I'm interested in that, i dont know how one goes about this but i fear its nearly undoable, i'd guess the internet is more of a means of advertisement, hoping to get the ability to sell posters with the digital imagery. I have yet to find pictures i can view that i cant get to my harddisk, of course print-screen helps a lot in this, and in the most grave case i might get my digital camera.

Well, you can do what's referred to as "watermark" your pic or you simply type the copyright symbol... here's little how to for different comps/codes etc:

No you won't Angler! Fish will stop you because Lina's work is very pretty and all prettiness is a gift from Fish.

The colours make me think of the sunlight at sunrise and sunset when I swim close to the surface and that is very nice and special.

Of course. Did you even read the text though or just look at the pictures?

Pain and Child of Winter are better in my opinion. To me, they "say" something deeper but to each their own. :)
