$chixor, This is a humble start, but here is what I see in this wonderfully sad Manip...Let me know your thoughts?...(: ...iamthedark
'' As I walk the breezy dunes I came down to meet you but you're not here.
I look to the sea, in the direction you left me and my mind screams for your return.
My mind screams and my heart aches, I cry out for your face.
The wind carries the same reply, always never.
They say the storm was sudden, and your ship had no chance.
They say all hands were lost in a sea too angry for mercy.
Still I wait, too hopefull to be hopeless, to in love to be loveless.
The wind carries the same reply, always never. ''.
Ok first id like to comment on the expression of the subject.. Its so teasing and menacing! Almost as if she were saying 'come with me, dont be afraid' dont be afraid of the destination in the background so to speak? This wills the audience in and captures the attention alone, giving a vision of curiosity.
Wonderful use of manipulative techniques, you seem to be pretty damn good at implementing this dark worn and battered look. Reminds me of an old picture that youd see in a fantasy movie... ya know; those ones that come to life and start moving!
I love this, it sorta reminds me of the Lord of the Rings, in a strange way, could it be because of the castle on the hill and a fine-ass girl wearing a hooded robe? Well, I really like the spooky, old effect that you got going on here, with the cracks on the picture and the unrealistic realism (I know, contradictory...) And the very feel of it is very dark.
And I see you have added irony and humor to fool us, I see the cars on the right side.
