    Contrast - Man and Machine

    Hey guys just thought I'd post something I asked for help about a few months back I figured out how to create man/machine. By looking at machinery and man made objects I noticed most were very masculine in the angles, straight edges and hardness about them so I decided to take on a feminine face to contrast with the masculine heres the pic, hope you like...

    looks great from the pic. the wire/hair will add to the dramatic contrast too if you add a lot more of it, but i think u already know that and will be adding them soon. the other thing is the elongated face also adds to the "elegance" of the face contrasting with the "brute" machine. only thing that i felt could enhance the overall feel is to refine the skin of the face more, maybe smoother skin by sanding more and adding translucent layers of paints, making it look more lifelike and natural human skin tones, to contrast more with the harsh, rough, wrought iron of the machine part. maybe its the photo, but at the moment the human side reminds me of dead flesh, maybe that's intentional? and please, more viewing angles, you've wet our appetite, please serve the desserts!

    Actually you hit it right on the mark with the dead flesh, I thought about it and if you have such a separation of the flesh between the machine then the flesh without the constant stream of bloodflow would indeed start to decay and loose colour and luminosity =) more pics shortly just have to charge my cam =)
