Fear of the Dark by Kechake Fear of the Dark by Kechake
Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
And turned around and no ones there?
And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because youre sure theres someone there.

- Iron Maiden, "Fear of the Dark"

I really love the Graveworm's cover of this song - I find myself listening to it almost every day.

Model - used with permisson, no stock

Since you wanted it this way, you're getting a critique. :)

I like the fact that there's color in the center and the image fades to grey toward the edges. This keeps the viewer's attention on the mirror and the model's face. I also find the transition from blue to yellow tones in the mirror quite pleasing. The elements of the scene are well placed and I think you conveyed the theme (yes I know that song) quite well.

But in my opinion the skulls don't contribute positively to the picture's impact. They seem somewhat out of place to me. The aspect ratio of approximately 1.6 is a little weird too.

All in all, it's a powerful image in which you used colors sparsely, but very creatively.
What do you think?

I suppose that I don´t know your work and I think that I was losing a lot because this is really incredible!
I love how to put all images together and specially the light in her face and in the mirror - amazing! :clap:
The textures fit very well in this wonderful background and I love to see this part of the sea creating a suspense mood and suggesting that all that skulls come from there.
I can´t wait to see more of your work that capture my eyes and my feelings.
Keep going with your amazing work and sorry about my poor english! :smooch:
Cheers
Mel

A haunting piece. I loved everything in it except the sword; I really think it should be deeper (?) in the pile of skulls so it would look more like it's stuck. The light is incredible.
