Blood or make up for this clown? Both, and we feel it. It expresses a great distress, but also a total resigned despair. That is great. There is an impression of filth, misery, too... The eyes are deeper as ever, indecipherable. The framing forces us to look straight in your eyes, beautiful brown eyes, then our look "flows" with the bloody tears 'till the lips, barely opened and revealing the dark inside of you. The contrast between the tunisian smile and your mouth shut down is incredibly expressive. This is a great work, really. The photo and the compo, the idea and the reality that came out. Bravo, Cristina ! You deserve to be known as one of the bests of our time.
This clown-like image is sure to send some people to bed with nightmares! Her eyes are what i find so interesting, how they look so flat, and lifeless. They look dead on at the viewer, seeming to look through you, or into your soul. Of course it is quite joker -esque, and easily gives off the feeling of insanity - how did she end up covered in scars? Is the blood hers. This picture could easily be the poster advertisement for a horror movie.
I like the way you framed the image, stopping just before the edges of your face. This gives the feeling of a semi close-up. Because she is looking dead on, it is quite confronting. Te fact that you can't see the backgroud also adds to the mystery of how the girl came to be covered in blood, and how she lives her life.
I really like this image, its a simple and well known pattern, yet you used it as a vision of horror and suspense!
I see that you left some hair on your face. You could have made yourself look 'perfect' according to societies' standards on how a woman should look like but you have the guts to go out of that norm. To clarify, I didn't intend to say that women don't leave some hair on their face. maintaining a hairless face at all times is difficult. but you've uploaded a close up of your face on the internet. with your huge following, it's out for the internet to see. You could have removed it on photoshop with little effort, but you didn't. I find it very interesting and admirable.
There's so much editing here I don't know what's real and what's not. The mirroring you've done is very obvious to me, but you've patched it up pretty seamlessly. It's a little unsettling actually. Would be interesting to see the raw shot, that's for sure!
If you have a lot of favorite by me, don't freak out I'm not a stalker , but dear lord your photos have this kind of hypnotic "thing" maybe it's the innocence of the face or I don't know, but I love it! Have you do some Art exposition? Continue your greats works.
I love this picture sooooo much! I even drew it, feel free to check it out! (i know a lot of better drawings were uploaded already but i tought i'd share it anyway ) keep up the good work, you are really inspiring!
Interesting eyes. Don't be offended but I don't think your eyes would normally catch other people's sight easily but here, this close with this exact expression. It's very sexy actually, this distress, this weakness on such beautiful eyes, it can only call for attention, no pity, just awe and an excuse to care. It's same look women occasionally share, the blankness that screams "I need it".
I've seen this amazing image floating around on facebook pages but no mention of the artist until I accidentally bumped into it through a Google search. Christina, I want to let you know I love this image. I'm glad I found your other work here on deviantArt. <3
