Last days by CatchMe-22 Last days by CatchMe-22
Electricity is nothing but a myth
The air burns your lungs even with the mask
As Earth counts its last days
And you realise that
flat screen TVs, sports cars and fashion
do not seem so important now

The colour version of [link] and entry into the Darksiders contest

Which do you guys prefer?

Hi. First of all if I compere the greenish version and this one, I like this one more. Because of the greenish filter the other picture looks bit artificial and frozen. But it's strange how strongly it differs from this one. Even tho I like this more the greenish version seems to have stronger atmosphere.

Back to the this version. It gives me an idea of scene from theatre. Flash from an act. His position works. When I'm looking at the picture I see the figure as silhouette and It gives me many ideas. I think you should've add slightly more light to the background on his left side to highlight the form of the postion as the brightness on his right side eats the dim light on the left arm and leg away.

This pictute might've worked even better if the figure wouldn't be bathing in light. Figure could be darker but not too dark so people could still regognize the details and limbs.

Well done.

I agree with u in that the two versions differ strongly in the atmosphere it gives. Part of the monotone picture WAS to make it look artificial and frozen but visually the colour version looks nicer. I actually darkened the background in photoshop cos I wanted the model to stand out from the darkness, but I understand what u mean.

I can't decide if the model is vulnerable or more sinister. It's like something from a nightmare (or maybe Dr Who).

I like this version more. I can see where you are coming from in terms of style, but this feels like it has more depth. I am probably talking a lot of rubbish, but hopefully you understand.

I was going for vulnerable but I can definitely see where you're coming from :)

And thanks for the advice! I quite like this version also :)

I like this version. The figure stands out better against the background, the gas mask in particular. I think it enhances the overall unsettling effect. Your eerie, truthful verse rounds it out nicely.

Best with the contest!

thank u so much for the input! I agree with you in terms of the coloured version standing out more, but thought style-wise the monochrome worked a little better :)

And thanks for the compliment on the verse! :aww:
