    i'd remove the "but" (of course then the poster only works for folks who already share the sentiment)

    powerful. great one as always

    Bang on, Oleg.

    Flawless.

    I think this is the first time I've had no tweaks to offer.

    I liked aswell

    Oleg

    I especially like the concerned look of the woman looking down at the threat after a confrontation.........no look of gloating....no dancing..... No room for the anti's to skew this as a blood thristy promo for vigilantism.



    Again another wonderful visual portrayal

    I love it. Except for the yellow... did you try white or light grey?

    Feel free to mess with the font or letter coloring as others have suggested, but I believe this is one of the best products you've produced in my time on THR. I've got a great target audience (the modern American female college student) to share your work with. Thanks, and keep it up!!

    <----still waiting for Oleg to use Pamela Anderson as a model :D

    As I explained to my wife, it's not an addiction, it's a fetish.

    Love the sentiment. Especially effective on computer as you scroll up from top half to bottom...

    Very well done. The eyeshot on the lower left softens the harsh goings-on implied to the right.

    I work with ugly engineer-crafted Excel & Powerpoint graphics every day. It is nice to see what somebody with an eye for aestetics can do.

    Oh, and the sentiment expressed is right-on. I'd much rather comfort my wife after she ventilated some dirtbag than have to ID her at the coroner's office.

    Oleg - like it immensely but - wanted to ''play'' a bit - so offer a slight alternative. Like most of these things - there are no finished results that will always be judged perfect - always scope for change!

    I painted out the rather large (to me) eye catchlight - and changed wording a tad as well as font ... plenty of other fonts would suit tho. I chose bottom text color as a sample of lightest skin tone of model... the yellow for me was a problem .. too blatant.

    Chris' graphics are AWESOME. Much better than the original.

    The font doesn't matter as much though.

    Good work to both of you.

    Good poster.

    Here's a suggestion for a related one: the hand with the knife and the cuff of the flannel coat is reflected in a very large image of the woman's eye, and the image of her next to it would show her with a phone in her left hand and a .38 snubnose in her right, standing over the torso of the BG in the red flannel coat.
