2 eye balls please!

Something for another ChiuStream challenge. The topic this time is: Eyes.

Really rough idea:



Final (not anymore :P):

Any feedback are welcome - what story do you see in this image? (I'm curious).

Saw the image again this morning and cringe.. still so much things to learn.. Here's a bit of fix. :) I'll leave the previous version here as comparison and future note to self :)


PS: Thanks to Chris Georgiou, Kim Taylor and Piya (and others :D) for the feedback so far :D

UPDATE: I won an oil painting by Thomas Fluharty!! Oh geezz!!! Can't believe it! Thank you so much for the support, guys.. especially to Bobby Chiu and Thomas! :D *jumping around and screaming*


Piya said...

Light up the eyes! Light up the eyes!!! And the opening on the door is too bright and forms a tangent with the girl. Kids shopping for eyeballs like candy, haha! Love it!

Everything looks really good, though I find it hard to see what's in his hand - a coin?

The concept and story are great :D Love the depth of field as well. Very effective.

Lesley Vamos said...

Fantastic!! I love the sketch version though... I love being able to see all the rows and rows of eyes ^_^

Charles Santoso said...

Piya: Thanks for the feedback, man! :)
Jonas: He's holding a diamond or somekind of blue gem.. I agree that i can be clearer. Thanks for mentioning it :)
Andres: Thank you for the visit and kind words.
Lesley: Hehe I actually like the very first sketch.. there's something that's missing in the translation to the final one :) Thank you for the comment :)

Loved this one and was easily my vote. I think the perspective was what sold me on it. Nice work :)

Hi Charles, THANK YOU for the kind words on my blog!

I am inspired by what you are doing and will be coming back to your site regularly for a breath of fresh air. Keep on doing what you are doing.

Do you do your painting on the computer or by hand? Its really good. I love it!
