I love the way there is a contrast between the single tear and the surreal splash of colour on the other side, and the fact the rest of the face is relatively bland. It's very abstract which I love, and it's a great piece of photography, and even the simplest of turnings of the photo has made quite an effect. The impact of the dark shade of the background to the light shade of the face as well creates a ghost like effect which in my opinion emphasises the use of the colour on the eye, therefore it truly does express such emotion. My favorite bit though is the single tear; it still has effect even at the simplest of forms. Well done.
At first glance if I didn't know this was from you I'd have thought someone had done something horrible. The blood -- the blood! -- the tear ... the raw emotion all work together in unison to evoke an emotional response. I love the monochrome skin tones contrasting with the black and red clotting blood.
At second glance, however ... the thing that gives this away as not being real ... is that your "damaged" eye -- the actual eyeball itself -- is bright and beautiful. Thank goodness! I've seen my share of such damage and there is usually broken blood vessels, clouding, even rips, cuts and leakage. Don't ask how I know this.
Depending on what you hope to accomplish, special effect contact lenses may be worth considering.
Either way, I'm constantly amazed by the beauty and imagination you put into these images. You have created a signature style in this make up art form. Thank you for sharing these with us!
I am very sensitive to violence to eye, it gets me every time, unlike other forms of gore (in art, in art!). Strangely though, this picture just struck me as very emothional and very, very beautiful. I find it very expressive, and I identify with the feeling which, I think, is expressed. Thank you for creating such heart-moving art.
this is really freaking awesome! love the silver color of of the eye and the blood is really nicely done. i love that i can see a little bit of neck. the tear is also a good touch and the hair going into the corner of your mouth. very captivating.
This is beautiful! At first I wasn't sure I liked it turned to the side but it makes it that much better. As usual your makeup is fabulous and I like that the tears/moist eyes are subtle and add just the right touch. Haunting and lovely.
