I feel a lot of tension with this piece, the eyes dropping down give me an eirry feeling. the eye ball attached to the umbrella not sure what that means i can only assume it is to catch all the gobaly goop running down her face. i really like how you cut into the skin with the wings on the eyeball i have tried to cut into skin with modest success. i think you made this as gothic photo or an altered reality photo.it has a lot of interest i keeping looking back at this to reevaluate it.

if it were my photo i would lower exposure and see how it looks on the dark side
What do you think?

I agree it's a little bizarre, but it's a joy to enter the surreal mind of others :) I like it a lot :D

I'd like this, honestly, if it wasn't so sloppily done. It looks deceivingly good, but as someone who's worked often in Photoshop, it's just lazy.

The use of the blend tool on the eyes and mouth... Eye, are amateurish, with you paying to mind to how the contours of facial lines were also distorted by this. The dripping of the bottommost pupil is unconvincing and bumps awkwardly, and the umbrella is ripping straight from google images.

The curved lines on the corners of the mouth ARE convincing and quite chilling, but that's about the only redeem ability I see in the edits you made to this picture.

Sorry if I come across as a bit to brutal, or simply an asshole, and I know you may just be unfamiliar with the program, but please at least do a quality check before posting something.

Look man, I don't understand why you decided to come here and be an asshole to me but even if you feel like this piece is lackluster why does that matter so much to you? You seem pretty upset with the fact that to your standards my piece isn't very good, which is fine, I just don't understand why it has you so flustered. This piece was just an idea I had based on some crazy dreams I was having, so I decided to make a quick piece about it and try to make something interesting but simple. Is it perfect? No. Is it something that I like and other people also like? It seems that way. Art isn't supposed to be perfect, that's what makes it art. The flaws are what give it character, I enjoy the way the liquify tool makes things look or as you call it "the blend tool" I also like how the face got distorted by the "melting" eyes so I left it. It could have been easily fixed but I decided to leave it there because I like the way it looks. Also the umbrella you think is "ripping straight from google images" is actually from someone here on Deviantart, as are most of the stocks that I use. The way I see it I took 4 ordinary stock photos and made them into something different that expressed what was on my mind. Every once in a while it's nice to have fun with art and not worry about all of the little details. I do professional work as well which I do like to fix up and focus more on the details to make it look pretty for the clients. But my personal pieces are just that, personal pieces. Another thing, I am very familiar with Photoshop, I know that program top to bottom since I use it on a daily basis and have for quite a while now. So please, before you comment on my pieces assuming things about me and acting like every single piece on Deviantart has to be a masterpiece, take a step back and ask yourself why it's such a big deal to you that this piece or anyone elses piece isn't up to code for your standards. I'm all for constructive criticism but your comment came off as rude, insecure and arrogant. I apologize if that's not how it was meant and I also apologize if you take this comment in a negative or rude way. Have a nice night and thanks for your time.

And now that I look at the description, you literally took stuff OTHER PEOPLE DID, SMASHED IT TOGETHER, and shat all over it.

This is just awful.

Very surreal, it looks great! I personally would blur the umbrella and chain juuuust a fraction because at the moment it's more sharp than the face. My favourite part is the eye and mouth, but the drooping eyes are distracting me away from it a little. Regardless though it's a lovely, creepy piece. Well done!

This is a brilliant shop, and disturbing as all hell! My only suggestion would be - maybe move or get rid of the umbrella`s logo? looks a bit out of place :P
