I've been stressed and pissed off lately, so I guess you could say I kinda feel like this, as bad as it seems. I'm sure most people feel like this every once in a while. Oh well, I'll get over it and I'm sure that everything will work out, right? Enjoy this piece, stock is by *SuNNyD-Stock Thanks for the great stock there! Enjoy this piece.
P.S. - I played around alot with the blending layers and such, and I think this works pretty well, any other information, hints, w/e would be greatly appreciated. Bring on the comments!
EDIT: Tones changes, took that damn huge ass black border off, looks better, no?
This is a really striking piece. I absolutely ADORE it! I love how you've whited out most of the image - it makes the deep red blood really stand out. This is like the opposite of grungey dark art. It has a very precise and designed feel to it, which makes it more disturbing because the subject matter is in such contrast to the style of the piece. And I LOVE the text in the bottom left hand corner...I am a typography freak so it really appeals to me.
I think the only thing that could be changed here is the inside of the mouth, at least the teeth, just because the blood brush looks not very well blended to the image, it almost looks as if it was floating there.
BUT!!! The image looks really good. I like the very white skin, that definately adds a whole lot to this.
yea i know what you mean, i had a hard time with it simply because of the white and the contrast, pretty hard to deal with (at least for me) I make take another stab at it some time soon, thanks so much for the crit though, crits are the best you can get
