Je trouve cette photo oppressante… le mur du fond m'attire mais ces yeux braqué sur moi sont terrifiant.

mes yeux te transpercent!
c'est ce qui arrive quand on regarde directement dans le trou de la camera, au travers le mechanisme, le long du cable et ainsi jusque dans ton ecran...

I must say that I actually really like this one. The lighting is good and the eye make up too.

i got some pretty bad comments about the lighting on a "professional" photography forum, haha, but i guess those guys just see everyting in technical terms... blah!

May be they do see things in profession terms - however I think that the lighting on this makes it looks really artistic. Especially around the eyes and it gives good volume/structure to your cheek bones. I also look at a photograph in terms of how it would look if drawn.

I like the way your hair has come out on this too.

The only thing that looks strange is your nose shape - because of the light/shadow.

I think I really like this because it doesn't have lighting to make it look pretty.

You know - these preofessionals often produce work that all looks the same but with different people. This one is different and that counts for a lot.

Well done.

yeah i saw that the light on my nose creates an odd shape, i think its actualy the shadow from below my eye in contrast with the harsh light on my nose.

I also look at things and think about how i would draw them. Especially since i have been seriously studying arts, trying to paint realistically. It forces me to analize shapes and shadows in the world around me all the time...

If you don't mind I might actually have ago at drawing this in pastels. - i expect I will correct the nose shape though.

they're like very different from your usual work.. more colors, more clarity... more focus on your face maybe? Less distortion [which dont get me wrong.. I love how you can make your portraits so surreal and abstract] and in a sense these are sort of surreal with the background you've added.
But I really like the makeup and the lighting.. it's eerie.

thanks! its more of a straight forward portrait than usual, but i couldnt resist 'darkening' it up a bit.

Nothing I do ever turns out like I thought it would. I'm not even sure I can really take credit for my stuff because it just kinda happens on it's own:P

Tes cils se sont enfuis! très bon travail sur le maquillage & le background, ça fait vampire je trouve, comme le jeu de rôle Vampire, The Masquerade, Bloodlines
