Painful by newtman001 Painful by newtman001
Originally done concerning chemotherapy. I find that it is equally applicable to my current situation - my inability to afford the tools I need to do my job: Bringing my dreams and nightmares to life.

It's striking and strong; I might muddy it up a bit with a texture layer, but I like it a lot.

Thanks! Since we can have multiple entries, I can happily say that this is only the first... ^_^

My rationale re texture layers is that the contrast between the smooth background, and the highly textured bound head forms a useful contrast. I thought about adding a texture to the BG when I did the piece, but trust me, it was TOTALLY gilding the lily. ^_^

That's cool, and I look forward to more entries (that's what she said!).

Seriously though, the doses of heavy saturation work really well.

Ark ark ark! Thanks, man. I'm glad you dig it - here's hoping the judges do, too. I think I'm going to try your textured background idea in my next contest piece.
