Nevermore by ChristabelleLAmort Nevermore by ChristabelleLAmort
This is my entry for Ghost Contest by :icondiantha75: [link]

`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil!
By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Lenore?'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.' :blackrose:
Edgar Allan Poe “Raven“

My 13 year old daughter is a Poe fan. Once I show her this, I can almost guarantee that it'll be added to her favorites in very short order. It surely found its way into mine. Perfectly captures the moody darkness portrayed by the poem. Wonderful!

Thank you very much! I'm Edgar Poe fan. Glad to hear that I've managed to create the mood of his poem.

You surely did a great job of it! (There's no business like Poe business...)

I like the complexity of your manips. Although there are some areas in which there is still room for improvement, I can only admire the accurateness and creativity of your work. It's not so easy in photomanips to find proper stocks and blend everything together. From your gallery I can see that once you develop your skills in some areas like improving lighting a little bit more, you'll be really awesome.
I really like how this piece is put together. All the elements seem to be in a good distance, so the perspective is well done. I also like the contrasting colours you used and the mood of this one. You can really feel the emotions.
When it comes to the lighting I'd especially try to fix the male model - he's sitting next to the fireplace and a bit more intense lighting should be created there. I also think that the shadow of the candle should be slightly longer than it is right now.
But overall it's a really beautiful, emotional piece! :clap:

Wow! That's probably the longest comment I've got on my works! Thank you very much for taking your time and giving me a piece of good advice.
You are so right there is a vast room for improving for me and this something I really strive for, as I like the process of creation of artworks but never the final result.
As you've noticed there are a lot of elements in my manips. When I start a new work I never intend it, but true inspiration and new ideas always come in the process, so new objects appear in order to contribute to the story and the feeling of the artwork. Sometimes I think I'm just unable to create something simple :giggle:
I'm currently working on the new versions of my older works and this one I'm going to redo too. Sure I have to work on lightning and shadows more here.

Thanks again for profound feedback, I do appreciate :heart: :hug:

I can tell you something, over time everything will only get better, just keep practising :D I can tell you that what I also like about manips is putting together many stocks, it's far more challenging and funnier than just putting together a model and a background. And I'd say that for a viewer it's also more attractive - you need to take more time to analyse the image to find all the details and appreciate the work fully.
So, good luck!
And when it comes to my comment (and the length of it :D) - you're very welcome :hug:
