The Ugly Truth by chibi-lilie The Ugly Truth by chibi-lilie
So, this was meant to be my submission for the :iconresin-aperture: challenge of april.

Personally, I thing this was teh most difficoult of the challenges till now. I've spent all the month trying to have good ideas but nothing came. Today was the last day that I could take photos before the end of the challenge, so it had to be today, and I forced myself to do something.

Personally, it might not be a super photo, but I like it a lot! This pic tells me so much! That's why I like it. (and it sure works better in black and white)

This background is meant to remember those boards where people gather all kinds of information on a subject trying to get the answers to a greater matter. When all the pieces are there, together, its up to the person to recognise or find the answer "hidden" there, or not.


This is Liam, his question, and all the pieces he need forming his answer, but will he want to "see" it?



(and please ignore my terrible drawing ^^")
-----------------------


Liam is a Crobidll Yeon-Ho. He belongs to me. Faceup made by me.

omg so beautiful! I so envy all of you people who have such beautiful dolls. All I can manage to afford is stuffed animals, living dead dolls, and monster high dolls.

Beautiful shot.
I love the "Who am I?" note and the devil wings in the background.
Nice lighting. Amazing.
There's nothing I could find to complain about. ^^

Wow, didn't even look like Yeon-ho for a bit there. Looks so intense on those papers. The who am I in the background is kind of that founding question, the ultimate mystery of life we all ask. Seems like there's more of a mystery there with the wing on the pages...

I think this is very cleverly done! Your bnw tones are really nice, and the composition is spot-on. I love that it took a few looks to realise what was going on in the background and see the wing drawn amongst all of the notes.

This is the first picture in the challenge this month that's drawn me in for a closer look. I love the concept - you've played with some interesting ideas here, they they bring the piece alive with intrigue. Compositionally wise, my eyes are first drawn to the background, even though it is out of focus, because it is very dominating. Then to the dolls sharper face, following the story of the picture. Intentional or not it works well, but since you've asked for critique I thought it would be useful for me to describe how I see this image :)

Liam looks very concentrated on his research. And the background...it's stunning - so many eye-catching details! Personally I love that piece of paper with the question. It's a great accent. :heart:

The idea of the paper with the westion came up while I was taking the pics ... for some reason I felt that it was very "empty", then the idea came ^^

This is great! I really love the concept, the background is wonderful and doesn't take away from Liam as the focus of the photo. I really like the contrast of tones as well. 8)

This picture is great! I can see in his face that he's searching for the answer, absorbed by this struggle. The background is really cool, and I just feel that the drawing is behind him, but he can't see it... as if it only showed up when Liam isn't looking, you know? I like the contrast and the way you positioned the wing right in Liam's back, like it was his, and not just a drawing on the panel. Great job!
