Tentacle land by hoschie Tentacle land by hoschie
I'm not sure about this picture.
I think anything went wrong in this work and I don't know what.
I like the technical aspect and the idea of this picture but I am not happy with this result....

What do you think about this picture?

Model: Ophelias-Overdose :iconophelias-overdose:

addition:
Ophelia is the cutest person I know. With this costume and make-up she seems cute and creepy/dangerous in the same time to me.
This pose is inspired from a lurking cat. Still and fixed at the moment (cute), but in the next second the explodes...

Or like catoga :-)

The black and white stripes reminds me on Tim Burtons artworks and that needs striped tentacles :-)

Hmm... Personally, I like this image. The model's pose and outfit are very nice and interesting. The varying widths and directions of the stripes draw the eye in, and the splashes of color (her skin, especially her face and hands and the skin showing through her tights) give the image an ethereal quality.

However, the 'off' part you mention in the description... Personally, I think it's the tentacles and balls. It's a bit too busy, and while the model draws the eye in, the tentacles confuse and don't hold the eye in one spot for very long. They're a very creative idea, but there's simply too many of them.

They create a sense of depth and motion within the picture, like the viewer could reach out and poke one of the spheres and send it rolling across the floor, but the repeated form of the two curled over tentacles in the foreground and the clusters of floating balls on the left and right are a bit much.

Maybe just doing tentacles or just doing spheres...? Not sure.

C: I certainly love the image, though. She looks very suspicious.

I'll start off by saying very interesting, unique piece.

VISION: Well, there's a lot going on here, and that's a little big of a problem. First thing I see when I look at this piece is all the tentacles, and don't pay much attention to the girl. The only thing that brings her out is her skin color and some of the pipes/circles are a little blurred. Maybe that's the off part in the picture? Other than that, good vision.

ORIGINALITY: I have to say, extremely original. Even though this type of picture has been done before - you made it your own, and that's what I like about it.

TECHNIQUE: It's an interesting technique. I like her costume and make-up and the certain air she has around her. I can't really explain it, but it draws your attention, definitely

IMPACT: Not much that I can say, but definitely five stars!

But in fact Ophelia looks very gorgeous.

I was gonna say that she looked so beautiful and creepy, and that that was very difficult to achieve... but you already said that in the artist's comments ^^;

Also agree with the Tim Burton-esque ambience ;P

I really like this but there does seem to be something missing from making it excelent. I guess it just doesnt really make sence to me, its like she needs to be looking at some crazy tenticle monster or something xD
Sorry I cant be of much help! Its still very cute ^_^ Then again everything with Ophelia is cute hehe.

Very much an optical illusion and modernist. The various stripes, balls and different shapes in the background juxtapose and contrast against the attire the model is wearing--and she's very catlike--perhaps reminding one of a cat-in-the-hat type (alluding to the stripped hat that character wore)??
