This image is based on original photo by MarinaCoric:
Breathe Me

Note: Sometimes I'm using photos from the Internet as a model for the future work (because for now I have no resources to find a model other way; I'm often using external sources like "VKontakte" social network, where creator's names are often cropped out or not mentioned at all). It's great that Marina Ćorić, author of the original photo "Breathe Me", found my page and caught my attention.

This is Just a Viewer Response Critique (I know more about literature than photography/art, but I’ll do my best):

The title “Dissonances” says it all, in my opinion of this piece. Here, the viewer is presented with two similar images of what (I think) is the same girl – it is a somber image, a realistic, mirror reflection that blurs into a Thanatos fantasy by use of hurried, messy lines. With the use of line, the artist transforms a beautiful and striking image into the shape of a skull. And while, the gut reaction is that that "beauty is a fleeting concept," it’s more of a psychological portrait into the character.

Perhaps she’s literally being held captive by art (the lines cover her mouth, almost menacingly; it steals away details into a blurry mass)?

Aren’t we all held captive by objects of beauty?

In this interpretation, I’d suggest that the dissonance between beauty and decay is the central trope of this piece of art. But, as artwork, the decay is frozen in place as a peaceful image. We do not fear death in this image, but share a private moment of fragility with the character. We’re left wondering what she is experiencing beyond closed eyes (is it beauty?). Or does she close her eyes in avoidance? The lines appear as cracks in a mirrored, double image: we are left, almost voyeuristically, with a moment in someone’s life and with our own dissonance between two contrasting concepts.

Every artist struggles with these ideas and wonders if their work will survive after they’ve passed on. A fantastic portrait, a graceful scene – I’m glad you shared it.

Sincerely,
Jason K.

Photography is something I am slowly working up to. I work a lot in both digital media, traditional media, and 3-D art. I feel like the overall piece has strong visuals,, but I feel like the line/brushwork gets a bit sloppy. I also feel like it disconnects with the photo, and is almost too distracting (the designer in me is screaming)... almost like it doesn't meet. Maybe add some 20-30% gray into the hair, highlight the faces more with that so your piece is able to really flourish the way you want it to.

What if you could warp the girl facing the front and the girl into each other somehow? What if you just go rid of the scraggly gray line at the bottom left? Your image is very heavy on the right, and it's not compensating enough on the left for it to work the way you want it to.

I'm not saying it's terrible, it's actually really cool and I like the concept. Does it have to be black and white? I feel like blue hues could work wonders... Or even pale orange hues...? Don't take this too personal, these are just suggestions.

It's got a crap ton of potential. Great job.

Both Light and Darkness are completely working with this one to create a stunning image with the emotions that creates dissonances , a feeling that is quite sad and lonely... But anyways this is certainly awesome and inspiring to see :)
