Broken Strings by BloomingRoseXeniia Broken Strings by BloomingRoseXeniia
What this represents to me is a woman broken, feeling lifeless..so used to someone playing with her and her emotions..
And now she's just left lonely and broken, feeling fragile like a china doll..
The cracks represent her feeling of brokenness, almost as if she's too damaged to repair completely, but she's picked up as many pieces of herself that she can, but she'll never be whole again..

Love the resouces you choosed :D

Vision/Originality/Impact:
I've seen so many of this type in DA, they all look the same. Yours reflects a bit of melancholy that i love. The colors used also gives it a more dark/macabre feeling.
Presentation is perfect, only showing a smaller image would help you prevent arthief and resellers and add a wattermark would help you too.


Technique
Great choice of crack brushes. But in some parts the wall looks to be blend to her cracks too. Maybe use diferent cracks in the wall would help.
The model needs a little shadow where she is sitting (legs and skirt) to blend it better.
The face crack is excelent. The chest piece looks very real too.
I would not add the cracks to her cloth cause the cloths would not realy crack like that if it where real, only her arms and face.
Also the strings need a casted shadow too.

Overall, great execusion, only a few detaills that can be re-do to make it more real.
Adding some info on who she is and she is representing will help the watchers understand your work too.
Great work, keep it up :hug:

Five stars for everything ! I'd already fav this one, maybe i already said it, but this one is the best of your gallery !

First the background:
It's looks abandonned, the cracks on the wall are wonderful, looks more than realistic, i'm sure we can see the same in an abandonned house !
And the texture with a grey/black/white gradient is awesome.

The girl is really great too, is she/was humain or just a doll ? The color you use for her are really great. Black/white and red. Best colors ever to make an art simple but who give an impressive impact.

That's atmosphere and that piece of art is one of my favourite for sure :3 Keep the great work !

#Creepy, I like how she looks a little like a cracked, broken marionette doll. She looks weary and in distress, weak, like she's been used one too many times.

# Creepy, yet very cool! I actually was planning on going as a puppet for Halloween, it's a shame that it didn't work out... but this certainly did! Very fun, but creepy, work of art.

#this picture reminds me of woody's female counterpart who's name escapes me in toy story. it is a vey pretty and haunting piece i think, i feel like it should have a little poem to go with it or something, it need something like that.

# Haunting... Just haunting... Incredible work, it really conveys the point quite well. I found the description to be a good addition to it, just to have a bit of the deeper aspects of it, without having to guess what you were thinking- but it still leaves enough up to the imagination. Keep up the good work, this is great.

This is stunning but I personally think that there should be a bit more blending between the cracks. Maybe that is just me.
