Eye for an Eye

Another old one, and I am kicking myself for not posting it earlier. Assignment for 'Quid Pro Quo' in my VD2 class. I think the pic is self-explanatory.

sheep_say_baawow. This is awsome, i love the color, not to mention your coloring style. Kinda reminds me of Black Christmas, just the eye association.

fladamA wonderful fusion of the macabre and the surreal. I do enjoy the way you have attached the colourless (upside down) face to the excellently styled central head, which has been expertly rendered with some time, care and (ofcourse) talent. Most importantly, the image works as a visual presentation, nicely composed and executed.

I don't have any criticisms, but if I nitpicked, then I maybe wouldn't of used red as the background colour, but that's just my personal taste.

Overall, a picture of strength and imagination. Excellent work.

XxXRachaelXxXVery interesting concept.
I love the cracked bleeding eye and how the colors of the hair blend together to make other colors.

Awesome job!

ganymedeOn first glance I thought it was Utena fan art because of its features such as the hair, and lip. I think Utena anime also uses surrealism style. The Color combinations are perfect I love it.

supergirlcomixI really like your color choices. They really fit well together...and the pressure you apply while coloring is perfect!! The general composition and the contrast with the black and white, then color is just great! You truly have talent. ^_^ I like the concept.

russbjusticeAnd yes I did get the whole "eye for an eye" thing too.

russbjustice on March 16, 2008, 10:51:23 PM

russbjusticeI like the "trippy" effect of looking into yourself. If that is the object of this. The abstract composition is very effective to say the least.
