Re: Oct 07 Contest Discussion

John Donne wrote these words a few hundred years ago:

DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee,
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell,
And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then;
One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

I chose to make the contest this month not about horror but about something more.

Janet

Re: Oct 07 Contest Discussion

For my entry I wanted to see what I could do quickly with just filters. I had fun as I hope everyone else did.

Designpunk
I loved the grey hair and I really think you achieved the dead eye look with the skinned over eyes (creepy). The lighting was well done and the aging process worked very well to develop your character.

Cassidy
I really liked the mystic glow around your character and the dark blank stare worked well.

Plattepro
Your image works very well with the poem. There is some darker black at the top of her head that stands out (at least on my monitor). This would have worked better if it matched the background's softer black. The muted eyes and blue veins worked very well and were an excellent touch. Nicely done!

Mikkimicole
Definitely a ghoulish figure! One I wouldn’t want to meet up with. The aged and tattered shirt was very well done. Great job!

BobJones
You created a nice skeleton feel here. I especially love the touch of changing the pearl to a scythe for the necklace. The B&W tone works very well to enhance that cold look.

LonK
Excellent horror figure! It was just a little too strong in my opinion for the poem. Great work!
