Accept Your Fate and Be At Peace. by Dualmask Accept Your Fate and Be At Peace. by Dualmask
Colors over .

Experimenting. Added 'souls' as suggested by :iconstyles1975: along with some other tweaks.

Not sure how much longer I'm going to be fiddling with this painting thing. I'm not convinced yet that it's "better" than what I've been doing in the past, just "different"...and more time consuming. But I think the real problem is that this is a bit too streaky and messy for my tastes...I want smoother, more evenly-blended paint work. More practice and fiddling with brush settings needed.

Awesome work once again sir and the colors seems to bring her out more in a hauntingly way. Nice work again and the co-worker I was telling you about actually like the picture a lot. That surprised the hell outta me because I thought she didn't care for art. She is no longer working with me because she found another job but it seems after I told and showed her the picture you did before the colors we kinda got along with each other better before she left. Well great work once again. :wow:

Thanks! It's nice to know someone who's not into art liked my work too! :)

Like the costume design going on here. :) The fogged lighting definitely adds a sense of depth to the scene.

My only critique is you may want to mix up the rim-lighting, making it more intense on metal and less so on fabric (unless it's a shimmery material).

Very nice! It may be, because of the metal, that there does seem to be a bit of difference in colors.

I'll be honest, I had no rhyme or reason here. I was just going nuts with a Photoshop brush I created and this was the result. ^^;

Careful what you wish for! ;)

There was an episode of Supernatural, opener of season 2, where Death disguised as a beautiful woman to try to convince Dean to accept his final fate, else he would eventually become an evil spirit...this made me think of that.

Definitely a thought to consider (that strong rim light should be coming from something I guess), though it kind of gives off a bit of a Storm vibe...

true, you could also add some lost souls in the background.

Nice work here, but don't be afraid to play around with the lighting on the skin and clothes.

Not sure what you mean...there is lighting and shadow on just about everything, though I did miss some spots as I see now. But it's hardly flat...

No it's not flat it's pretty good. I just want you to play around with the lights and shadows more to see how far you can push it. =)

The dark atmosphere helps give it an eerie presence.

I thought it was a cool idea; it came to me at the last minute of "finishing" this (art is never finished, only abandoned).

OH wow... I was thinking this looked a bit different from your usual work when I saw the thumbnail... Very interesting visually! The extra strong highlight is used to great effect, I think.
