Breaking Point - WIP by =3rror404
"I love the pain and emotion in this image. A vision straight out of a nightmare. To me, this is horror at it's best. Truly creepy, dark and twisted. This image persists in my mind long after it has disapeared from my computer screen..."

Favourite comment:

"This is incredible! I looked at the album art for "The Wall". The only way that this resembles that piece of work is that there is a face in obvious agony.

Your work is so much better, so much more finely tuned, if that is the word. The album art seems a gross misrepresentation, in comparison to your piece of art.

This is a piece of work that people who have suffered a great amount of pain, can identify with.

It is really amazing art and you certainly more than deserved a Daily Deviation. This should be the art that is on the Pink Floyd album.

It is obvious that you put a lot of creativity into this."

I too really like this concept.
The look of agony in his face is clear to see and sets the tone for the whole piece.

I kinda agree with the comment made by =lexigeek, in that, the area of skin surrounding the face appears to be lacking in detail and texture when compared to the face itself.

I wonder if the shadows to the right of the image could have been slightly stronger ? perhaps similar to those found on the right side of the face, near the eye and nose ?
(but then that may detract from the "face" and upset the balance?)

Overall, I really like this piece
Amazing work !!

I like it! It reminds me of a ZIT, for some reason.. A zit that’s about to pop… lmao!
But its good, I like idea behind it, thou you could make the wall or whatever it is behind the face more seamless. The curves couture’s creases especially the light parts, the raised parts, make them a lil darker to match the skin tone… because it starts to look a lil cartoony, but all in all its good, keep up the good work, and cant wait to see more of your work

this piece is incredible! the emotion and tension that is portrayed is simply stunning! The colors are really quite excellent as well! I love how if you look close enough you can almost see tears! And how it looks like hes comming out of the wall it almost looks like hes breaking through to the other side to escape the suffering hes eduring on his side. Its very well blended and it actually looks like he's comming out of the wall. Amazing. simply amazing. This is an excellent piece and an extremley excellent job done on it. Keep it up!

I really like your concept here, and the execution is quite well done. There are only two things that strike me as possibly needing improvement. First, I think the crease between his eyebrows would fade out sooner. As it is, I think it's a little too long.

The other thing is the texture. The original photo has great detail of the man's skin, with tons of little pores and bumps, but you lose that a bit as you get to the photoshopped skin. You might try finding some high-res pictures of really toned stomachs, which would have large, flat areas of skin you could overlay at low opacity, just to give a little more lifelike feel to the skin.

Other than that, though, I really like what you've got here!
