Out For Dinner by Mr-Ripley Out For Dinner by Mr-Ripley
This is my first photomanipulation in macabre/horror category. The most challenging part is to put ghost look in the guy. Made for my friend Yoni's Pandora's Box contest. danzi5.deviantart.com/journal/…

the most creative work of your gallery! Don't easy create something of creative! The variables to do this are differents. In this case the visual story has a logic sense because it also coincides with the story: "vampire coming out his coffin" but this wasn't enough...I mean to reinforce the scene he is climbing the wall.....and this reinforce the visual interaction with the character....and so this reinforece the global interest! An aspect really important and always understimated. He is following a precise logical path linked to the story....I like always this type of work because, turns on my brain and i see this type of works extremely rarely like gold!!!!

Im landscape fan, they are my fav....but of course i talk always in general because there are exceptions.........and this is an example! This work has a circumscribed environment.......and here, it is perfect because it enhances and creates a good claustrofobic feeling + a good amount of mistery.

The focal point created by the light on the top works really to the great!

the trail of smoke between the coffin and the subject create a soft good feeling of movement and this enchance the visual interest.

the almost imperceptible soft sepia + the hard desaturation help perfectly to describe the scene relative this topic dark gothic conclude excellently the scene

There is some little issue with proportions like the man don't match with the size of the coffin. reducing him is easy to fix this issue but not only, it is important also to enhance the global magnifence of the enviroment.
for me the proportions are importants....but this is the typical case where many strong aspects previous described save the entire work!

Many times i read boring useless anonymous titles......another aspect understimated! If the manipulation has for example a bottle...use as title bottle......is embarassing....and could also say we are stupid....i see there is a bottle haha! Many times i close works only for the shit title hahaha
Im very happy you used a cool interesting title here...above all because linked to the visual story!

The crows on the sky are of course in + for me......expecially the crow on the right near the character create distraction. In a portrait work these aspects are importants simply because the area is little and so we see all issues quickly...
the 2 crows on the ground + the crow on the coffin were enough here....
Also reducing their proportions is possible enhance further the magnificence of the enviroment.
the only and the only lack I feel in this work are the cobwebs! I see there are them here......but white on white equal zero contrast. So it was necessary put them on black parts
The o
I don't use never 5 stars in manip....because 5 stars for me means absolute perfection.
and i use realistic use of stars because im not a novice :D

Leaving apart tec issues previous described all the scene is perfectly clear..Vision: 3 because some tec issue

Manipulations relative vampires are ultra abused.....so i give 3 stars to originality...and not 1 or 2 stars because you created a little cool visual story!!!! So 3 stars is an high vote for me.

Technique 3 and not 2 or 2 1/2 for all reasons well explained (i hope haha) before....but above all 3 stars because the tonal harmony is very high!!
Impact for sure for me 4....because the little concept is really cool!!
What do you think?

Thank you so much for the kind word, Jan. :love: Yes, it's an old work I submitted 6 years ago. I still remember that this work was declined by a very popular group at that time because of the low quality. But I don't blame them. =D
This time I edited it again by adding some grunge texture over the old work. :)

you're welcome :) yes, the movie with Brandon Lee is awesome. So sad that he was tragically shot to death in this movie :(
the way his character leaves his grave reminds me a bit on your artwork.
