|I gave you a high score, 8, on this piece.
It is an example, IMO, and in my experience, of how a picture is taken to the next level.
No, it's not pretty, and sparkley.
It does give a mood. It tells a story within the frame itself. The blacks and whites are good, the lighting is a little flat, the 'A' looks cut out, the blood is too thick (ketchup?? try corn syrup and red,green, and blue food coloring), great comp, good movement.
Remember, emotion captivates the viewer, and an artist knows how to captivate.
Nice attempt, and under rated.
