:: Prisoner :: by vampbabe :: Prisoner :: by vampbabe
This was very much unplanned. I was actually trying to do something different for another stock but this came out instead. Credit to original stocks are below. I suppose the intent of this manipulation is a representation of the pressures we sometimes foster within our minds and how we allow the perception of the world to affect and bend us. I've chosen the scribbles in the corner because it reminds me of the effects in comics, when turmoil is represented as scribbles above a character's head. It made an interesting effect. Hope you all like it.

Is it based off of the fairytale "The Red Shoes"?

It wasn't originally based on that fairy tale, no. However, I know the fairy tale you're speaking of and red ballet shoes have always had a very dramatic impact. Thus, the choice of colour.

wtf? this exact picture is the cover for a romanian band's album. COMA is the band and "Nerostitele" (translated it would be "the unspoken") is the album
and the cover design was made by the vocals back in october 2006
:-?? There's something I can't figure out here.

you can check the album cover here [link] and see for yourself.

Actually, both the cover for the band COMA and their album "Nerostitele" was created using an original stock image supplied by this deviant ~SmileEmptyStock. However, she has since taken down her stock account. If you browse her favourites, you will see many different manipulations of her stock image. Maybe it's time COMA credit the stock account of this image.

It feels like more of an ID, than a wallpaper; but I like the soft white feel of it.

The color brought me into this, and then I saw the scribbles off to the right, and it reminded me of how much pressure ballerinas are under keep the perfect weight, look perfect, dance perfect, etc.

So much so that many of them become anorexic or bulemic. This is a stunning representation and view into some of those very struggles.....

Beautifully done. :+fav:

Thank you. And yes, this is probably the most overused stock I know. I'm often tempted to delete it but so many people like it so... Besides, it was done quite a while ago and keep it to remind myself how I can improve, especially in terms of stock manipulation. :floating:
