Evidence 16-17 by elgatonegro13 Evidence 16-17 by elgatonegro13
There is still some
evidence of your
and mocking me.
It hasn't hit me yet
but one day I
will face the
reality that you
are no longer
tangible. The echo
of your memory
is haunting me
and I am left here
to stare at your
sheded skin...

*The poem that inspired the piece.

I disagree with rahjin. I really like the blending effect...brings out the textures really nicely...fuck's about the feeling...anyway this is in the 'surreal' category isn't it??

I like the wall. It looks grainy and creepy.
MsStriker Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2004
nice manipulation :D

i really like the feel of this piece..deffinately one of my favorites! It's very silent hill-ish the way the grungy dirty look applies to it.. and the photos are very nice.. the colors are beautiful for this sort of piece.. my only nit pick really is the tacks... they look more like shadows than tacks.. and i believe if you had spent more time on them, it would have been a good improvement.. great job never the less though! I cant wait to see more!

This one is beautiful, the texture and the all fits in very well..this one's going in the favorites :+fav+
Libellula Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2004   Digital Artist
Wow, this work is gorgeous, and how you manipulate textures, brushes and all is fantastic. :+fav:
menteobscena Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2004
The contrast between the clean pictures as opposed to the wall makes your eyes work, and look at everything going on here. I really like that effect.
taoge Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2004
the concept is beautiful.. it's as if you're turning the pictures of her into an old police document :) +fav

the only thing holding this back from being truly awesome is the polariod borders... maybe a lighter color would help them stand out more? maybe indivual brushing on them instead of just using the background? just some more criticism. anyway you have an awesome style and u get the watch.
Wonderbox Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2004
something about not sure what it is.. it just has that certain grungey feel to it sometimes. great combination here.
IronEthel Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2004   Traditional Artist
The poem is very beautiful and sad...the picture is only heightened upon reading the poem and I think they go very well together. Keep up the's great.
bluemymind Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2004
very spooky and cool. it reminds me of something out of House of Leaves.
melisa Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2004
Truly worth a :+fav:. The detail and aging is excellent. You have a real special talent for combining elements and drawing out the thoughts others might not at first imagine. I'm truly impressed with your work.
jreaver Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2004   Interface Designer
great work. the whole thing comes together really well. :+fav:
darkfortears Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2004
I like the concept of this idea. The poem is lovely, very inspirational.

A comment earlier about making the stock images grungy too is one I agree with.

The stocks used are very nice, I think you chose the perfect ones. However looking at them for a long time it looks, to me, that they are slightly distorted, as if you resized the images from original size into the size you need - distorting them there.

I don't really have much else to critique on this.
I hope it helped you :)
rahjin Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
you cant go wrong with grunge :nod:. great model and textures, only thing is i wish the pictures looked more like a portrait photo instead blending into the wall, it would look more realistic, if thats what your going for.
MekaGojira3k Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004
I like it. The connection between the poem and the piece adds to it. Good work. =)
AidansAttempt Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004  Professional Photographer
I really really love <3 the grungy effects here. And also the way that it vs. the "clean" photos. I like the photos, very "in-motion", which is great. Colours are workin' and so is contrast. Great work <3 :blowkiss:

Littering my life with
pointless angels
finding cause for retribution
with every word I say.
You ever notice
the melted candles?
Ever hear me whisper
"I don't want you to stay?"
suicidalindividual Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004

fadedoak Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2004

tuteshot Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2004
Muy buena ejecucion del concepto que expresas en esta obra, el poema es grandioso. Realmente me han gustado mucho tus trabajos :)
KittyTrishia Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2004   Traditional Artist
Nice concept! Love the textures!
the-disposessed Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2004

Deserella Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2004

Vegetya Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2004

gracias bella :)
nebulaskin Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2004
like the concept and the idea... great work!
elgatonegro13 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2004
gracias linda, gonna translate the poem into Spanish.
gearlock Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2004
great piece, bro
i like the concept and the composition
suggestion: add some kind of rusty or old paper texture on the photos, to give an older look to them. :)
elgatonegro13 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2004
yeah bro, I had a few problems adding the final touches to it. gonna add some stuff
Kaitrosebd Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
The only real problem i see is that all the hpotos are in such great condition while the paper around them is really messed up......if I were you I would make the images either grungy like the frames they are in or make the frames of the polaroid crisp and clean like the images.......otherwise very good texturing and well put together :)
ircabbit Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2004
Wow. Great title, great composition. And I love the photos w/ the poem. Very nice.
lekaylea Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is a really nice image. The model you selected is fantastic for the style, and for the inspirational poem as well. The poem is also very nice as well :) You really have a way with photography. Really nice job!!
ADDena Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2004  Student General Artist
nice poem n pic! i like it alot! works very good together
s-yl Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2004  Hobbyist Artist
very cool composition of pictures, the pics look a bit compressed but that's ok. It kind of reminds me of some screenshot from an old horror video game which is awesome. Great job indeed and the poem rocks too
elgatonegro13 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2004
gracias carnal. yeah I know, still learning photoshop and there stuff I still get stuck on. need to re-work the images to look more realistic. thank you for the advice bro. should be updated soon.
s-yl Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2004  Hobbyist Artist
i'll check it out then, for the image resizing use image size only to make them smaller or larger, to change the shape or delete piece you don't need use canvas size, that should avoid the pictures looking compressed
elgatonegro13 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2004
the problem I got is making the photos more realisitic...thank you for the suggestions gonna try them.
empireofdirt Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2004
