Hollow May Be Serene

Emptiness grave in Mind
On a night I have invented
There is a strange big moon
But the stars elude the skies
And the clouds are of the sun

I don't know....

I don't know how how to take this death or relief known as Emptiness.

I'm a big fan of `LuneBleu so I decided to use her stock photo of herself and this is what I came up with. I wanted to make a meaningful wonderful mysterious deviation for this very amazing artist! Ms. Anna Cruz, this deviation is dedicated to you. :love:

Nice job, but it looks very fake, sorry :(. The lightning are all wrong.. like the gravestone is lighted from left and below, the lady from left and above, and the actual light source is the mooon behind them.. Next time try using stocks where the light comes from the same direction, and try adjusting the colors to fit each other. You should know that moonlight doesn't relfect colors like sunshine. Fx. it almost doens't reflect red at all, and that a problem with the ladys red dress and her face :).

Good job anyway, like the composition.

hello. :) thank you for your detailed critique. This is not a form of "Realism" and it depicts the poem in my Artist Comments:

"Emptiness grave in Mind
On a night I have invented
There is a strange big moon
But the stars elude the skies
And the clouds are of the sun"

The moon is supposed to be fake and I show this by having clouds that only the sun can light in such a way depicted. It's "A night I have invented". As for the lighting, I agree with all your points, were this a Realistic theme. These distortions of realities are my graphic metaphors.

Nevertheless, I deeply appreciate your points and give you credit for being my most objective critic so far :love:
