FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?
Add a Comment:
The dark, uniform background is perfect for a stock picture.

The lighting is very interesting, it gives the picture it's entire drama and helps create the whole dynamic.

However, I believe the shot is a bit over-lit, the left side of the hair is almost overexposed, and the face that's in the shadow is so dark that the shape of the eyes is barely recognizable. This all gives the photo editor (who would use this stock) little room to play with contrast and the lighting levels.

The expression of the model is just fantastic! She uses her whole body and she uses the props (turning the clothing around, swinging the hair left and right) to embody that feeling and that dynamic.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
18 out of 19 deviants thought this was fair.

When I saw this picture on Facebook I knew I was watching something new: horror made without the monotonous idea of a spirit cannot find peace. This one express a being out of this dimention, a tortured soul that seeks no peace nor redemption, or even forgiveness, this character displays anger, mystery, something coming out of this dimention only with evil in mind. Demonic possession? Witchery? No, Holywood has burned these subjects to the very ashes, but his is original, no possession but herself, no witchery but her own supernatural nature, and the idea of floating in the darkness, and the marvelous game with the lights, really helps thinking this creature, being, can only exist where darkness is, and the light is only a reflection of her own supernatural soul.
I like it all, can't wait to see more of this horror stock, I love the face expression, so dark, so powerful that even light fears to display, to show, and only darkness is comfortable enough to contemplate it.
Well done Jessica!!!!!
