I am usually not one competent enough to write critiques for either photographs or SFX makeup, but I will try with this one considering the impact this photo made on me.

This image is strong. Painful. Scary. All in a good way. It moves your emotions. What really struck me in this photo is the unexpected masculinity from you; I watch every deviation you submit and you always manage to look like a beautiful woman, but this shows a more "male quality". This duality and androgyny in one person is truly fascinating!

Your technical makeup skills are those of a professional, and I am in awe of the "realness" of this makeup- especially the cut on the nose is spot on!

You are also able to emanate this unrelenting determination through your eyes, it is almost hypnotising!

Another astonishing work from one of my favorite artists.

Your work is new to me PBL, but I a mired your skill and dark visions. I feel like you might be a kindred spirit. I find this photo - "Undefeated" to be a little bit different than most of your images. It is not so abstract and stylized as many of your beautiful demons, but seems to be more grounded in the events of your life. This more direct approach - because it is so accessible, is very powerful.

Your make-up skills are formidable and you take a good solid photo (lighting and all). You've got the insight and the daring to make sets of images that crawl up into the viewer's mind and spawn. Gotta dig that..

Very nice work you need some more purples especially around the eyes. Do some greens around the edges of the bruises like you did in the corner of right eye. This the first time you have done special FX make up that I have seen it good work.

it's not the first time, it's just not something I usually do... I didn't put a lot of purple because usually the purple will surface after a bit. those hematomes are pretty fresh, they're mostly red at the beginning.

ROFL - I can see your face!

This one is very "human"... unlike the stuff, that I fave usually.
I think, itīs damn hard to produce a pic which shows an emotion.
Often itīs more ridiculous than touching. Too stiff or overdone...

The make-up is perfect, but thatīs not a surprise. Itīs the gesture and your eyes, which make this one....
Again, most people would just look stupid, somehow. - But I can see someone, who didnīt gave up by now.
(didnīt tried to find out, if youīre male or female by now... unimportant IMO)

ahaha XD actually yes XD lol
btw, I agree with you. Most of the times, make up covers the majority of your emotions. You can rely on the eyes then but since I use contact lenses, it's not going to work that way. In this particular one I wanted the message to be VERY clear, very powerful. And I don't care if it's different from my usual stuff :) sometimes, a change is needed. (and btw, I female ;) just so you know.)

This reminded me when I would look like that after my ex had beaten me for something pointless. It was extreamly moving and a powerful image. I think you are absolutely breath-taking.

Yeah >_<' I hope you are feeling okay now! Keep swinging! It feels like I'm always getting my ass kicked at times, but I try to roll with the punches...even though what I really want to do is hide under the bed and cry. lol

...of course, nothing gets done if I hide under the bed. >___< Art doesn't make itself! (Sometimes I wish it did, though)

YES! FOR ART! I've been so sick and shit, I haven't gotten to do any face painting yet like I wanted too! I have a Wolfe pallet I wanted to try out, with some spiffy crazy nail art and mini costuming I wanted to do....

Cuz I can't just curl up and close everything off. xD Infact, the urge to create is strongest when life kicks me in the balls. Why is that?!
