More drawing

Experimenting with texture, shade and light. Plus practising drawing of course, something I don't do nearly often enough. We've been working on our new website if you have a chance to look I'd be really grateful for any feedback.

The patterns of light in this add so much to the illustration - beautiful!
The website's looking really clean and modern and I love the mouseover touch :)

That's beautiful! Gorgeous dappled light effect, and I love the play of shapes and swoops and circles. Wonderful!

Your website looks great! Very easy to navigate, and your works look fabulous!

So neat! I really like all the light and pattern.

The website is looking great! I really like the tiny colored leaves logo at the top of the main page, (though I may have made the swoop a color instead of gray?). And I really love those sort of spiny trees at the bottom.

I also really appreciate the simple, clean font style. Sometimes I see websites with crazy hard-to-read fonts and wonder what the heck those people were thinking!

Your website is looking great Nicky, nice and clear, concise and easy to navigate. Know how long these things take, i am in the process of updating mine too.

I can't get to your website! I get a DNS error, or else it just hangs. Maybe our Internet connection - not sure. Anyway, this picture is great - I like the shadow-effect!

Okay - I now got onto the new site! I really like the look - clean, fresh and simple. It is easy to navigate. And the illustrations you display on the site give a good idea of your style and the range of what you offer.
From a proofreading perspective (can't help noticing these things!):
1) shouldn't it be "greeting cards" (i.e. without the "s") on your home page? Or do you say greetings cards in the UK?
2) Second sentence: should be: "This IS the heart, ...."

Thanks to you all for your comments, a real help. It's amazing however many times I read through it I still find errors!
