Hi Amélie Hutt, your work in progress is really interesting and I liked the latest so far with the guy's eye closed. If I may suggest, do play around with lighting

Reminds me of this one:
Sax Duel

Back to yours...
Does she pull the trigger? If yes...that makes it so much more interesting.
The image conveys such a delirious state with her in it that even death gets a sweet taste. I imagine him feeling that way.
I really like the overall idea. How the visuals are in such a crass contrast to the actual action.

some critical remarks:
The red behind her head makes it look like she gets shot. With the current way the image is laid out it seems unintended...but it could certainly add another edge to this image.
I don't like the bottom left corner because it's distraction and doesn't offer anything.
Also the handle of the gun feels a bit too dark compared to the low contrast and bright hand of hers. But I actually think it's cool that the gun distracts the composition a bit, because it's the unsettling element that reminds us of what is actually happening.
Overall I think you could aim to maximize the delirious feel. Maybe by improving the flow of her dress, add mood/depth and refine the faces(shading, proportions).

Keep it up!

Thanks Eonridr and VHASE. I'll condider your advices, that should help me a lot. I was a bit stucked on this.

this is looking really great. I do however prefer the eyes being open because it creates a more intense connection between victim and prey, its also alot more sensual with eye contact. If the eyes are closed it seems like some of that closeness and intensity are gone

Work In Progress: dreaming the end

I considered your advices. Does the flow still need to improve? Maybe I can choose wether I make it go from the low left edge to the right high edge or make everything turning arround.
I think we feel more the guy as prisoner of her by now wich is good.

I prefer with the eyes open too.

Final Image: Dreaming The End

Software: Photoshop

This scene happens virtually a couple of weeks before the agent woman actually kills this guy.
In fact she's not the one who will shoot. It's just a dream, that would have been too pretty. Also she's not a killer. She's an agent. She only planed his assassination.

In the way of her mission she teached this bad guy something he never lived before, or lived too far away. When he started to think she was a dangereous ennemy, he has already accepted his defeat. He wont do anything to stop her and let her bring his own death.
It is during this dream that he faces all his thoughts and when he decides to accept his fate.
The end was nicer in the dream than in real, for sure.

this is really good stuff!

I think the flow of the red fabric/flame/stuff is really good, but I would like to see it fill more of the upper left corner of the picture (if not all of the upper left corner to create a good negative space), and not so much on top of his face. Making a more strict circular framing around his head would make him much more 'imprisonated', and place him and her in a good circle in the golden cut of the picture.

This is certainly my favorite picture so far. Keep rocking!

Great work, it definitely tells a story, very interesting, i'm liking the chosen colours, mood, composition and overall concept, the red clothing could be a bit more dynamic when looking at the main composition, as well as the hand that's not holding a gun, the way it's pointed towards the camera could use some work as it seems a bit flat, otherwise awesome work, looking forward to any updates

I absolutely love this piece-the flow of the dress brings you in, takes you around, and reluctantly releases you back to the real world...all the while the tension and intensity in the middle between your two characters draws me right back in.

Great work with this.

Amazing peice you have going Amélie,

Love the emotions you get from the painting and the vibrant colors, looks really good, cheers!

A truly incredible work. I noticed you raised the male character's line of sight from the last work-in-progress to the final piece... he's now looking directly into her eyes. As I was scrolling through the different versions of the entry I wondered to myself what it would look like if done so. I like the adjustment, and think it helps sustain the intensity of the moment. Great work altogether.

This really came out great, and I love the story behind it. Congratulations!
