Mr and Mrs Death by blurrysarah Mr and Mrs Death by blurrysarah
Painted in photoshop....Got the inspiration from my great grandmother's wedding photo. No, she didn't marry Death, but the mood of the photo was just as sullen (you could tell she was ecstatic to be marrying the guy).

I'm not too good at skeletons obviously, I got a little lazy with Mr Death. I probably should have used a skull reference, bleh....Most of the time was spent on the Mrs...yes, I did mean for her to be that freakishly skinny.

Indeed! This is quite fantastic my dear... your use of shading is practiced and skilled. It's refreshing to see a painting in black and white (my favorite medium) The detail in the dress is esquisite, very well thought out. have you eve rconsiderd clothing design. I'm guessing you have impacable fashion sense. I can tell you spent a lot of time on this piece and it paid off.

I like the girl as much as I hate the skull.
The piece isn't scary too. So the girl and all those details are great (thought maybe she doesn't look like Mrs Death, however does she look) , but even I could draw a better Death ;) (Wink) .

woohoo... the mrs. looks nice :D (Big Grin) If I wasn't a circle I'd do her :P (Razz) lmao.. :o (Eek) .... wait, I'm female... strange... Crazy

anyway, she's nice.. I like how she came out, more work on mr.death really could be done. The mrs. looks great, her dress is nice too, looks kinda like a saloon girly ;) (Wink)

It's all been said, what they all said up there. Mrs Death looks a little unsure of herself..... I wonder why :P (Razz)

wow..i think this is one of ur bests so far. the mood is captured perfectly with the total grey scale look.The dress on the girl is outstanding. All the ripples to it through the lining of it is outstanding. The black roses in here hands add such effect and darkness to it. Her smooth tender "freakishly" skintone and weight is excellent for this piece. Her hair is awesome. the way it bunches up and goes to the back and sides is great. Death looks mucho and very dark and secretive like he should be. The skull on him looks perfectly fine. I don't know why you don't like it. And the way you have his hand going around her on her arm is awesome. Back to the girl..The way you done her eyes show great effect and adds the skin tone to a darker perspective about herself and her eyes. I love how her chest pops out and goes back to her stomach to skin/bones again =P (Razz) This is one my favorites. Excellent job.

The girl is great...I can see a lotsa work there...especially on the dress...very detailed...a wonderful work indeed...I also like her face...very in the mood of death... :D (Big Grin)

Well. What to say about the skeleton. If you want me to be sincere then ill say im not that fond of it.

Ok. you said that you spent most of yr time on the girl but that doesnt mean I have to say i like the skeleton, does it? :) (Smile)
His tunic is ok...but his face...mmm. I think you should work more on it.

Its a great pic tho. And, i really wish it won the contest :) (Smile)

wow this is awesome!

the cracks on death's skull could be a little more subtle, they just kinda... pop out there, and don't look natural.

Other than that you have some great talent Sarah!

I'm back for another (long-winded) attempt =D (Big Grin)

It looks like you used a 'sharpen' filter, as a lot of the bright areas are very bright, and there's a lot of crispy detail in white. I'm not at all sure what this proves.. it does look good, however.

the little thing around mrs death's neck looks like a texture on a 3D model, and that's really weird.

the way the corset (?) hugs her body shows her figure much more effectively than tone usually does, and the bottom part of the dress not only looks great because of the amazing detail, but because it flows out from around her waist. I also like the way her dress ripples right at the top, as though the constricting part is a bit lower, although i think the top part of her dress could be brought up to the level of the bottom.

she has a very strong-lined face, but she also looks quite beautiful, in a very dark and brooding way. her hair also looks cool, like it's almost in dreads.

mr death's skull (face?) is getting close to being the skull of an animal, the area around the nose-hole (heh) has some very sharp parts, which i think are more rounded on humans (maybe) - and the way his cloak flows and ripples is very well done. the point where the left (relative to me) side of his claok dissapears under the right side looks particularily good, for some reason.

the one area that needs work, i think, it mr death's hand on her arm. it looks like it's just sitting there, and appears out of nowhere; there's no real evidence of his arm sticking out as far as the cloak is concerned.

and i'm not even going to write about the flowers. you know they're good ;) (Wink)

keep it up, man =) (Smile)

definately one of your best so far!

the mood you conjured is so depressing and grim, but at the same time I can see the funny side; reminds be slightly of Tim Burton's Beetle Juice.... that same kind of sick, twisted humourous feeling.

I love the teeth on Death and his hand gripping on her arm is real spooky.

Her dress is amazing, I love the shiningness and the detail.

Ohhh, and of course I love her hair :) (Smile)

I sure hope this wins something.

Well done Sarah, you the bestest. (`..-Take me by the wrist..)

oo, good lighting, nice texturing, very sarah-like :D (Big Grin) like the b&w, makes it look old like death. her arms are in porportion (fuck spellings) and the light sits on the boobas (WOH COUGH) very nicely.

the only thing weird/wrong i could find is the eyes. they look slightly retorded on mrs. death, and a little asymmetrical and stupified on mr death. otherwise, perfect :) (Smile) .......Bug
