THANKS FOR THE DD! :) :)

ANYWAY, BECAUSE OF MANY OF THE COMMENTS STATING THAT THE MODEL IS A "SHE"
I HAVE TO SAY, BUT SORRY, IT'S A "HE" NOT A "SHE"
YES, IT IS A GUY
NO, HE'S NOT A GAY
YES, IT'S HIS REAL HAIR & IT'S LONG
NO, THE RED EYE IS NOT PHOTOSHOP'D (THERE'S A REFLECTION OF ME HOLDING A CAM IF YOU SEE CAREFULLY)
THANK YOU :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-06-12
The suggester says; "I think it's just awesome." That it is, from the contacts to the density of the blood, very striking portrait.

My critique (:
okay, first off quite a dramatic peice, i feel that the blood/gore is used possibly too much, though i like the tear marks. I would personally not of used red contacts/edited the eyes either. though keeping with the theme of red, black and white i can understand why, but maybe a blue could of been more startling and no one wants to see pretty eyes cry.I feel this could of had more texture, ie, bandages to give the feel more of an intensity so that the person viewing would want to know why the wrist ect was hurt. Rather than, has she eaten someone? which may be the thing your going for, though considering the name is mortal heart maybe its just a visual for being heart broken :3 i dont know, you should tell me :3
anyway, hope this helps.
Good luck!

this is the first critique i have ever written on dA, so forgive me if it will be far from professional. the thing is, this image is the first one that captured my imagination and simply didn't let go, not giving me much of a choice this way - i just had to say something more about it.

i am not usually into the whole horror and macabre theme, but this photograph is so full of emotions, i just can't take my eyes of it. it's not the blood, it's his face that captures it, the macabre is more like a background, a story behind the real point of focus.

the tangled, imperfect, slightly bland hair, the irregularities in the facial expression, the sorrow in his eyes, the almost trembling gesture of his hands - even without the crimson-red eye colour and the blood spread all over it would have been a photograph to hold on to.

though i have to admit, the macabre theme is done more than thoroughly as well, i can't even really tell if it was manipulated so well or if it's actually been real blood used in the shoot until i read the information attached. it's looking very natural.

on the other hand i am not that overly impressed with the eye colour. i can't really tell if it's simply just too much or if there is some of that depth of expression lacking in them of which there is so much in the rest of his face, it just doesn't seem right. perhaps a cold storm-grey shade would do the photograph more of a favour, with more intense silver lines in the iris instead of that black irregular 'frame'?

overall though i think it's a brilliant photograph and it brings meaning back into the often so plain and spiritless horror and macabre section.

Great picture, captures many emotions and just by looking at it tells a story. The eyes would had look better if they were a crimson red but the idea you had in mind its diferent from mine. Still Great picture that captures ones eyes.

I can't critique cause im not a premium member but ill do my best in a comment.

The piece is very intense, and surprisingly subtle, the first time I looked at it I thought it was just going to be another gore pic, but I looked at it in more depth and I startled myself because I realized I couldn't look away, the intensity of emotion put on display in the face was painful not to look at, it was so capturing and I think that it hides behind the mask of gore and then jumps out at you when you look away, so I think the gore was a nice choice. The person's expression is almost as if they want to be forgiven for some unseen sin, as if to say "I had to do it, I had to" but also with a kind of realization as if to say "you wouldn't understand, how could you". The name is perfect for this, not only giving it a dark and symbolic feel to it but an overall purpose to it as well. I only have one thing to say that isn't to worship the artists, why are the teeth not bloody, but besides that it IS worshipable.

lol
because of the saliva inside his mouth ?
anyway i've tried to put blood in his mouth (purposed for the bloody teeth)
but well, during the process for the expression, the blood is seemingly to fading within a short time :)
please don't get it wrong, it's not an excuse
i'm just trying to explain ^^
anyway thanks a lot for the critiques !
appreciate it.
