Siren's Stare

Don't trust her beauty...


This photo was taken by my sister :iconpixiecold: with her brandnew camera, she also did the makeup.. So it would be very nice of you to switch over to her gallery as well and give her some love! :D :heart:
The editing in Photoshop was done by me, I have to say that Photo-editing is so much fun! :la: There may follow more like this! :D
The eye belongs to my other sister, she has two-colored eyes in real life! It's so cool! :D

I hope you like it! Favs, comments and critiques are highly appreciated! :la: :heart:

This is really unique how you've done the scales around the eye. It is also nice to see that the iris is somewhat rainbow.(When people think of Sirens, they most often see beauty. You've certainly captured that. You;ve added different shades of color, so it isn't boring. You've liened up the piece with light and shading. You've also made the piece intriguing. Or you could say "mysterious." Whichever you prefer. It is entirely, up to you. The glitter and water droplets add a nice touch to the piece.So overall I think you did a ery good job on this artwork.

I really enjoy this piece. At first I thought the makeup had been edited too, but when I looked closer, it looked too real. I think that the coloring on the eyes really adds to the dynamic and the overall impact of the work, a stunning addition that was needed to make the makeup "Pop".

I feel, when looking at this, that I'm staring at the face of some mythological creature from long ago, like a dragon or a mermaid, but I think your title nailed the picture's true nature.

On the Makeup, the lines are crisp and almost symetrical. So much so that I thought it was photoshopped at the beginning. As I've said, I have never seen an edited photo that preserved the skin texture beneath it so well. This is how I noticed that this was more like a very clever makeup job.

You did some good work here. Keep it up.

This is honestly one of the best macro photos I've seen in a while. The makeup and the colors have so much of an impact as well as the expression which you can tell by the look in her eye.

The textures to the left almost made me think this photo was edited because it's so almost symmetrical. Whoever done the makeup here is extremely talented. I also love the bold colors of the eye itself and how it's almost blurred at the bottom so there's not much focus to take away from the makeup. Great job to everyone involved.
