It takes one memory, One tiny piece of hope, One single act of love, To cut through the darkness.
This is a paper-cut piece. I used an exact-o blade and just... got into in. I was really excited to play with the negative and positive space as a second layer to the concept of the contest. I know this was sent in close to the deadline! But, I'm really glad I tried anyway. <3
This is my entry for the Skribble competition; my first thought when i saw the pattern was 'Gas Mask' and nothing else came to mind and so in particular the gas masks of the Great War always interested me in how they were often so mishapen looking and gave the british lollipop like heads.
This is my entry for the contest. I was influenced by some of the Mondo posters out there and create a more illustrative style. I also wanted to show Roth, one of the wolves and part of one of the statues in the background to help show what influences and transforms her into her survivor self. Created in Photoshop CS4. Thanks.
Edit: Special thanks to Square Enix and Deviantart for holding this contest and to all of the great submissions and a special thanks to blackoutt for posing.
this is one of my first pictures using zenit horizon 212 camera. Been always with digital, using this camera is quite a challenge -> a lomo - panoramic camera with film, can't see from LCD, no metering, no AF.
Excited using this panoramic camera, I brought it to my favourite place in town : old town part, where there are so many alleys, stairs up and down.
I use Kodak Film ISO 200, f/2.8, speed : 1/60s
convert simple to black and white with photo shop (just using channel mixer, monochrome).
This girl actually was wondering maybe, whether she is in or not , so she just waited there in 'perfect place' where as seems there is light - ready to transport her - like in startrek movie - hence the title of this picture.
Whew! Well here's my first entry. I contemplated doing this digitally but I've had so much fun with my Copic markers recently that I decided to just do the entire thing traditionally.
Also, I wanted to modernize him as suggested but didn't want to overdo it with too many elements so I decided that the lone smiley face- a popular icon from the 70's- would be the perfect fit to counteract the moody demeanor of the piece (Plus, it's funny!)
I still might send another entry in with a dash more color but I also really like the contrast between the drab grey tones and the bright yellow of the 70's Smiley Face button.
