I'm sure Grimm will be there when you get there lol.

I like it, you have done a lot of cool things here, very creative.

Only complaint I have is the title feels a little lost, it's isn't contrasting well on that abstract art, which kind of blends in with the wall too...

I really like the idea though and I think you should keep it but try a different painting or different colors or maybe lighter shades, obviously I don't know exactly what change to make but I'm sure you will come up with something great.

Love the little birdie on the door too.


:D

Very nice start! Something about the rug doesn't look right to me though, you have a very straight edge at the bottom but on the right it's at an angle, wouldn't the straight edge be at an angle as well? Also same with the sofa something about that angle looks a bit strange.

wow great stuff, i really like how you have included the images you used to make the front, very insightful.

...but just to be a pain in the a**, im going to have to disagree with everyone.  :-&

i really liked the first one. i thought it was looking awesome, thought maybe the image of the dog might appear looking up at the painting just on the edge of the light. cant wait to see more

Well, I'll let the boys criticize, lol - I think it looks amazing! I do prefer your 2nd take though. Continue on and don't worry about the Grimm. I get how long projects with many seasons of a TV Series can be put aside and I don't even work as hard as you do to get mine done, lol

Much better direction but I feel the angle of the wood isn't correct... Maybe something more like this?

Both look good to me, all that lower background area will be far less noticeable once the characters are in anyway...
