Tragic Romance V by X-GloomCookie-X Tragic Romance V by X-GloomCookie-X
Models: JAD and Rose Macabre

This photo shoot was one of my biggest projects and one that I will be eternally proud of! I definitely drew inspiration from Ophelia from Hamlet, but wanted to go a little bit further and even draw in some Romeo and Juliet.

Please enjoy and leave some love!

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-12-21
Tragic Romance V by =X-GloomCookie-X is strangely elegant with great attention to detail, from the murky colour palette to the models' poses. ( Featured by RockstarVanity )
:iconferreson:
I really love this piece. In fact, I think everything you achieved with this series was really inspired and overall very successful, but I think its quite fitting that this was the one selected as the DailyDeviation to represent the shoot. It features both of your models very well and completely captures the story you were trying to tell in a beautiful and morbidly exquisite way. Technically, you achieved a rich, stark clarity. All the details are sharp and illuminated with soft light. Your composition and the deep colors deftly pull the viewers eyes throughout the image, swirling down into that powerful murkiness with twinges of emotional evocation. Things like curiosity, empathy, pity, shock and even a dangerous allure play in the edges of our mind. Overall here, you took a common idea and artfully produced something that you deserve to be proud of. You could hang this on your wall, if you're that morbid sort. ;) I'm guessing you are.
What do you think?

I love how your picture incorporates so many elements to it. It has a kind of gothic victorian whimsical vibe to it. It's pure beauty!
