Real tongue dots!




From my tutti frutti series:

My favourite one yet! I said before that i like it when the fruit is off centre, and this one is great! The fact that the face is front on and perfectly straight looks great with the lop-sided look that the fruit gives. As usual, you've designed it so the eyes contrast with the colour nicely. Blue complements the orange really well. I like how the spots are spread out further than usual, and into the mouth, and how the face-paint is emulating the shape of fruit pieces. It makes the picture seem wilder and quirkier than some of the others. Your hair is a nice, dark end to the brightness, and off-centre pictures are a favourite of mine, so i like the effect it gives.

So, wonderful photography, a beautiful picture. I think this fruit was a great choice because the individual pieces are shapes within a shape.

This is a wonderfully striking image with a very well thought out colour palette. I like the fact that you've got various shades of orange throughout the makeup, and the slight dryness on your lips gives a lovely sense of texture in the brighter shades. The tongue dots are a lovely touch as well, and the texture over your skin adds a lot of depth. Speaking of depth - your eyes stand out beautifully, and they look gorgeous.

Blue is, of course, the natural choice for orange being a complimentary colour, and I love the fact that as well as dying your hair you've dyed your eyebrows as well. I also very much like the fact that you've captured this slightly off-centre.

What I would say is two-fold - firstly the outlining on the segment shapes on your cheek looks a little uneven and uncertain. It's quite difficult to see what effect you meant to get from that. Although it's not at all intrusive and doesn't much affect the rest of the picture it's a little...well, off, perhaps. Secondly, some of the dots on your face are a little odd - either you overdo them in some sections (at least in my humble opinion) or, in the case of the ones above your eye, they seem to acquire a texture of their own. Again, this isn't so much a bad thing as inconstant as compared to the rest of the black dots.

Other than those two incredibly nitpicky points I really, really like this - well done! :D
