They make us who we are, then persecute us for who we're not.

Feeling a little claustrophobic and trapped when I made this.

Yeah, that's right. I brought in the ominous "they".

this looks so much better on paper.

EDIT: I darkened the shading on the actual piece and threw in some additions, and essentially tried to make it cooler. The scan came out a lot better in this one, which is good, because I was getting really pissed each time I looked at it.

:heart: Sweeter words have never been spoken. For the record, all my pictures come out blurry and I handle the computer art like a tonka truck. :|

I love the message in this one!!:) I like the addition of the bar code, the number on her shirt, and the cross because it implies a lack of humanity; it’s like she’s only the product of society and not a part of it. It's like she can't be herself. You did great on the emotion on her face and all the details too. You do floating people really well! :D

Thank you so much for the in depth comment! The message was one of the things I'm most concerned about, getting that across doesn't always work as well, but I'm glad it came through on this piece. :)

very nicely done, detailed just enough so each time I look it over I notice something else.

Love the concept, and I think you executed it quite nicely. Her facial expression, especially... it really evokes anger/frustration.

Thanks for that. The more I look at it, the more I hate it. More because its a horrible washed out scan.

But if I evoked that, then my job is done. :heart:

I was kinda putting my feelings into a science fiction sort of setting, so it was like Dartech made her this way, and now they're keeping her....i figure she's a healer or something, and she's branded that way.

i dunno. seemed like a good idea at the time :lol:

:D Every day, your pictures flesh out parts of my worlds for me, and it makes my life easier. :heart: I fuckin' love you.

Also, this one inspired a random challenge that I'm going to take on when I get done with the super-secret ^sbaraci business. :paranoid:
