EMPTY and FULL by madnessism EMPTY and FULL by madnessism
EMPTY & FULL
You get to choose which is which, and why.

:bulletred: edit: The composition was pissing me off, so I fixed it and now I am happy happy happy. It reminds me of a popular piece on DA, but that wasn't intentional. :B I lighted it up, adjusted levels more, did a lot of what you guys suggested so thank you! :hug: I still can't figure out how to make that right dress more full, but I think I like it flat anyway. :blowkiss: Enjoy!

:bulletblue: Done for =DMchat's second Art Collection which has the theme of duality.

:bulletblue: Thank you to =mynti and =memod for your help and listening to me bitch about this piece. :D

:bulletblue: I am very open to suggestion on this. I like how it turned out, but it feels like it could be improved. Just be a little gentle, as I've put a lot of time and work into it.

:blush: Thank you for such a nice comment. I actually have a print account and would like to make some of my work available, but none of it so far is large enough to be put on more than a postcard. You wouldn't believe how tough it is to find good stock as huge high-res images. :(

Tell me about it! :faint: Too many times when I find something that is absolutely perfect, it turns out the res is too small then I have to substitute with something that yeah, it works, and luckily more often than not I'm content with my substitute. At least now I'm noticing with new stocks here, that they're uploading them in wicked hi-res! :D

that right one really reminds me of the cover of Rant, Chuck Palahniuks new book (its a detailed piece of musculature sorta blending into a white background)

I think EMPTY is the one on the left, because she seems dead or in a deadly mood or tide.
The one on the right, instead, I think it's FULL because her heart's beating, her blood's running in her whole body. So, she's so full of life.

I really enjoy looking at this.

Possibly to make the right dress look more full (like I know what I'm talking about) is to put some shadows with low opacity in it like the pleats in the other dress.

Not sure if that will help but just a suggestion.

Well I stumbled upon this while reading one of mynti's thingies..

I am totally infatuated with this work. I love it i love it i love it i love it.

The details are amazing..the lighting..the mouth on the one on the right...just everything.
extremely well done.

I think both are empty and full. The left is tangible, but no soul. The right is fantasy, but with soul... I have to make a choose... I choose the tangible one... I already know the crazyness of living into a fantasy...

The title and the image together give it a whole new meaning. With the first word being "empty" and the first image on the left showing her clothed and all there, it seems as if she is caged in, maybe, or being held back, trapped in the darkness of that dress. But then, the second word... "full"... in the second image she's almost not there. But you do see her heart. Is that all one needs to be full?

I dunno. It might not have been created that way, but this really made me think. So, very cool. :thumbsup:

I've been waiting to reply to this for a while. One of the best comments I've ever recieved, so thank you. :heart: I'm glad it made you think--that's sort of what I inteded by naming it backward and not explaining any of it. But I'll tell you a secret. The girl on the left is full and poisoned by emotion, the one on the right is an empty glass shell except for the heart that keeps her alive. Both are parts of me at different times and I wanted to show that. :aww: :hug:
