.: Fair And Guiling Copesmate Death :. by NatiatVII .: Fair And Guiling Copesmate Death :. by NatiatVII
It took me several hours and im still not satisfied....

But, if you really wanna catch the mood of this work, you've to listen to this: [link]


For this contest: [link]


"Sensing this pine is as deep as the deepest chasm,
'Tis and hath e'er been merry blood to pest -
Hither! - cede and fulfil my phantasm!
To be adust for time longer can I not bide,
Cherish me and sonorously do me laud -
Hence the heart hale out thro' the chest!
For dread! - thine eyes will behold a guise faugh'd."
Misery thee?! - Rather misery me! -
For in Time's durance am I naught but wee."
"This tender and loving pest I to thee bequeath,
Thence switly wilt thou errant to 'Neath."
"And to me should'st thou be the humblemost knave,
Lest fear! - spit I on thy cist and grave! -
Lest leer I at thee and do bewitch,
And the tharms fluttering claw'd and eldritch."
"To conquer thee and thy blood for glore
Art thou my afeard and reluctant whore;
Irksomely coy, save wiliéd by alarum,
Bear this torture and maim with decorum.

Hello!:wave:
I am doing this critique for the Feedback Frenzy contest!

At first I would like to congratulate you on the colours you chosed.The combination of purple and black really sets a magic and mysterious atmosphere.These colours helped you create an amazing piece full of originality and encouraged us to think about the mistery hiding behind this image.I also like how you the purple reflects on the dress of the model.
Speaking of the model it was a inspired choice.Her pose ,the attitude are perfect for this.

The only thing I would say it needs a bit more of work is the hair.It doesnt blend quite well with teh rest of the image .

Overall, amazing work you have done here and I honestly envy you for your talent and inspiration.

This is a beautiful and stunning piece! It is a wonderful composition: the shapes, poses, and especially the skillful use of light and dark tones capture the eye and lead it around the picture space. :clap: The choice of color and the limited palette is lovely. I love the wisps coming up from the spirit being and how his arms reach around to encircle her.

The only crit I have is her hair. On the right side (her left), you can tell that you added to it with a brush because there are several locks that appear identical. I would recommend working on her hair more, building up from a slightly darker base with the brightest strands on top, using a variety of brushes (=Falln-Stock and ~trisste-brushes have some good ones).

Overall, very well done and beautiful work! :)

Hello, it's crazyDoggy from #FeedbackFrenzy, critiquing for the last time in a while. c;

As you've already said, your manipulations can be color-assorted. The purple you've chosen goes along very well with the emotion and vision of the picture! I think you did an amazing job on this (:
Well-selected pose, model, and theme! ^^

The only improvements you can make are the hair - it just seems too bright and thick for this picture. Maybe a lighter and less feathery hair would have worked very nicely. And the white outline on the model's dress and ribbons seems a little too prominent and thick - tone down the brush size color a bit to blend it more. (:

I really love the picture, masquerade-related things can always be very evil and daring; which you have shown well here!! Hope to see you again soon! (:

Hello from #FeedbackFrenzy team 8!

I love the color scheme for this, purple + black + white always win and the colors are very well balanced so there's no thought of oversaturation or overbrightness. Also from the elements in the picture, I like the relationship between the girl and the almost-plague doctor looking guy (though his mask is more carnevale, that style always reminds me of plague doctors). The purple smoke isn't too bad either.

It's kind of hard to critique much when you've posted at such a small size, but a couple of things standing out to me are that her body isn't well blended in, there's a garish edge highlight on both sides of her body which doesn't fit with the narrow light source. Also on the flowers on her dress. I'd use an extra layer with a clipping mask and just black those out, personally. Also the purple smoke right behind her, just above her right shoulder, is way too substantial for smoke. Also her hair doesn't seem to be behaving quite like real hair on the left side, but I kind of like the effect as it suggests she might be more than she appears to be.

Anyway, hope this helps. You've got a good idea of composition and how to execute a concept.

Hi! Here again to critique this piece from #FeedbackFrenzy

Again, wow you have blown me away. This piece is breathtaking. The colors you have chosen are lovely (I love purple works so much :D)

I think that you really achieved something in this piece, you were able to really create so dire emotion, something very sinister but still very beautiful. There's so much mystery and ambiance to this piece, I just want to stare at it over and over.

The lighting is wonderfully consistent, very real. You also blended these two models, background, smoke etc, so perfectly. It looks like a painting. The hair painting is nice but I think if you added more to it, gave it more shadows and highlights it would look more dimensional like the rest of the piece.

Over all, this is wonderful. Great image. :D

Why aren't you satisfied with it? I think it's absolutely stunning and you should be very proud. If you're anything like me you can see little tiny things wrong if at all any, and then they play on your mind, I've learnt that even though it pays to be a perfectionist (I have been told I must have OCD :D) it also pays to just sit back and enjoy your own artwork. With my Lady Gaga Painting I can see what I've done wrong in a click and I could go back and make it perfect but then I also think that perhaps there are things wrong with it however it's what makes it personal. Anyway slightly off on a tangent, great piece of work :D
