consequences by Nilanja consequences by Nilanja
Picking a title is always so hard... I know exactly what I want to say but not how I should put this into a few words...
This photo is about giving but emptying yourself at the same time. It is important that you always get something back, no matter what you do. Even if it is nothing material

I know that this concept of empty clothes is nothing new, still I wanted to try it on my own.

the photo is available as a print here :happybounce:

Haha, okay! Out of all the photographs in your recent batch of work, this one stood out above all. It is such a combo of many different emotions. To me it is a bit surreal, do to the light atmosphere, the sunny day, then this spooky thing is floating around freely looking for love! I feel as if you almost created a character. A silent drifter, in search of someone to show him a little compassion, and give his flower to someone special.

To me it not only tells a story, which is why I love it, but it creates a personality out of a faceless character. That is quite difficult to do even for an illustrator, who has absolute control over all the elements. You truly created something here, and it is really beautiful, frightening, lighthearted and comical all in one. It even has a lot of movement, that jacket really seems to be traveling, based on the shape and slouch of its position. What a great combination, you are a true artist! Haha, I just love it.

Since this is a critique I will try to find something to critique. Honestly it really needs nothing more to make it great. It is perfect in so many ways, both in color and design. I love how the rose is positioned and the way in which the crimson red pops from the green backdrop. Even the highlights on the jacket are so beautiful. Not even sure how you did this, but it a great effort and result. I can imagine it took some planning to execute.

Honestly I can’t think of anything that needs changing. I am looking at your description and see what you are going for. You also mentioned that you had trouble with the title, or describing the work? For me it is a simple message, yet may be different than what you had in mind.. ‘Love Never Dies” I see that because the floating jacket to me is a spirit, that even after death, his love lives on. So in a way it is a bit ‘sad’ but also ‘hopeful’ Is that what you were going for? If not, then it is fun to hear multiple interpretations, am I right? =D

I see you like to work in square shape compositions. Perhaps that is like your signature… a way to make your compositions stand apart from other artists? Perhaps it would be interesting to try different dimensions, for example, horizontal or vertical? It could open up new possibilities. I see you do this here - It is a nice change. Maybe just a small change briefly in the shapes of your photo’s can give you a little change in pace, and allow your creative mind to see things in a new light.
What do you think?
