Artwork Description

"I lost myself in the shadows,
I'm lost again in the dark,
I didn't notice it at least,
I didn't avoid it at last.

I can't see between the darkness
that surround me when I walk.
I don't know if that's my face
or the one I want to display.

How many times others said me
how I must talk or must act.
So many times they said me
when to love, to laugh or to cry.

And I do not know, I'm not sure,
if that's my reflection or not.
Today my mask is so strong
that I can't remove it from me."

Done in Photoshop.

this is great. browsing through the horror pics, saw this on the thumbnails and wondered why this was in horror.
and then i enlargened the pic and goosebumps crawled up my arms, and the hairs on the back of my neck rose, and like, geez!
great work!
like, geez . . . . i'm rendered speechless. . .

Subtly but profoundly unsettling.I like it.

Haunting image.

One crit- the legs look wrong to me - too smooth, too heavy through the knee and calf, and not enough muscle definition, even at rest, for a dancer. The costume, on the other hand is lovely - the diaphanous fabric and the folds through the bodice, hem and sleeves are wonderful! And the lace at the hemline is simply exquisite.

Hi Chris - this is so lovely - from her expression to her dress and background. Just wonderful - like all you did Wink
