Default whats better: my painting or computer skillz

valentines day coming up for all you procrastinators..

i have been dating shannon for a little over a month now, but we have been hanging out for months.. so im not gonna be buying her jewelry or anything to serious... but i did want to get something cool...

her room is quite boring, and shes always asking me what to put on the walls... her bedspread is red, orange and yellow, very vibrant...

so i came up with these ideas...

1. acrylic on 16x20 canvas
Name:  DSC06168.jpg
Views: 0
Size:  85.5 KB

2. computer drawn abstract art, framed in red, matted in yellow... print goes all the way to the frame if she does not like the matte. also 16x20

throw some roses on top of this, and take her to a nice little italian restaurant, and i think im set

done up in illustrator (same program i used to make the zilla logo) using a base image and various effects...

and for this reason, im not gonna sign it, cuz it will either be not visible, or in the middle of the print if she takes off the matte..

she better not forget who made it!

I like the first one. It looks more modern IMO

I'm digging the abstract stuff.

So how much do you paint?

That'* not bad first time painting! She would like the hand-painted one better.. not only is it better for an accent to a room (less busy), but it'* prettier
