I like how you made the red shoes the main focus! Very true, this is a sacrifice I always have to make! :)

I think that just about every woman bordering on shoe fetish can relate.

I love the pair of red shoes. But not the unscrupulous look in her eye.

very good - you capture the feeling of her forcing herself away. The drawing looks great too

shock horror!

i never knew there were so many red shoe fans out there! I am amoung friends. hooray.

seriously, thanks for the feedback. I had a lot of trouble coming up with something for this. i find i get really stumped by anything with religious connotations. the red shoe segway was a last resort that kinda worked out!
