Nicely Done! Good Color Choices, Layout Of Your Figure and Level Of Detail. The Only Thing More I Would Want From It Is More Boldness And Shadow In The Blood / Tears / Paint On The Body And Dripping From The Skull. I Think That's The Only "Missed Opportunity" With This One. Your Skill Suggest That You Could Have Made It More Bold But Still Muted Enough to Not Rule The Image As Well. Love It!
Thicken her arm, it looks like a stick as it is. Her back either twists in an unnatural angle or she is strangley thin under her chest. That is the only things standing out to me. The headpiece design is really nice.
It can always be better everyone can improve (god knows I need to draw more) but compared to what I know of and can do in photoshop or even with a pencil its amazing lol. I really like it though reminds me of the type of stuff I sketch out at random when I'm not really sure what to draw. It talks a lot to me though not sure what kind of meaning I interpret from it but it definitely is saying something.
I love it and now that I know you have DA I will definitely be checking in more often to see what you've made.
So curious what got you started on this piece? Any specific inspiration? I always love hearing how something got made or how it changed from point a to z. I end up starting a lot of stuff as one thing and then it evolves into something completely different.
Well I have always wanted to do a photoshoot based around the model [myself] wearing this gigantic mask- preferrably with the base being an animal skull. I have an odd obsession with skulls, and they have various ideals behind them; I see it simply as the decay of life, which is something I wanted to be brought out here. The subjective idea behind the whole image is a frail young girl who wears this gigantic headpiece/mask to make the world believe she's more stronger than she appears, but in the end this "face" she puts on begins to poison her. In a way, we all wear a mask to represent our true selves differently in society... we do this out of fear sometimes, just to fit in or to please others. This facade can really tear us apart psychologically, making us question our very existance. This is what's happening to the young girl here- she's losing herself.
I really like that. I knew the picture had a much deeper meaning but you never truly know what every different piece of art means unless you hear it from the artist. Many people see many different things.
Like you are with skulls I am with tongues and a lot of friends just assume its like a lustful sexual thing but its like more of a filthy, greedy, insanity type of thing. Like they are (tongues) screaming out lashing madly symbolizing how even the most sane and 'normal' of us have something disgusting trying to get free. I like different art or things that kind of break off from the norm. Things your can't just know whats going on by looking at it but you have to see it in a different way then just what your eyes can show you.
This is so EPIC!!! It somewhat reminds of the hollows from the Bleach series. The dark theme of it makes it really captivating, I had a hard making comment lolz :] Also having freesia, a beautiful flower that symbolizes innocents is a awesome concept. The girl herself was drawn very well, she look so mysterious yet, you can tell she very determine about something.
Well just note I'm no art expert by any means loves <3
Wow that is the beautiful thing about art, there is so many ways it can be viewed because we are all different. lol I like your way better, I knew I was missing a certain element of this picture.Before I saw the necklace on the mask making me think it pretty important since it was just hanging there. Now I see why see can't put on her neck, the mask has consume her life. Aslo it still believe somewhere in side of her is a down to earth girl. I only say that because of her hair, she has different aspect of nature in from flower, feather & stone. Oh and as far as the black on her skin, you can see it as the daily corruption of life, leaking from the headpiece, starting to devour her body.
lol I think I typed 2 much :] When look up the word BADASS ^ this drawing needs 2 be next 2 it!!
