What Face to Wear

By HelenaJ
Proper experimentation here with an idea I had a little while ago and only just got round to executing. This is probably pushing my Photoshop skills beyond the limits, but hope you enjoy the concept. All critique and suggestions welcome.

Great idea, but I find the figure distracting, too much going on with the fishnets, the hair and the tattoos. Perhaps a more anonymous figure? More mundane from the rear? Looking at the image it also looks like the faces are too large for the figure reaching for them. It's certainly an idea worth developing and it would be interesting to see different interpretations. For instance an androgynous figure with different male/female/clown faces?

I'm with Norm on this, I think. I'd go in much closer, and have the figure from above the waist only.

I might also go for a tighter grouping of the faces and hte hand reaching for them.

As it is, mere man that I am, I get distracted by the shorts and fishnets. I think you want me to be wondering about her face and motiviations, not looking at her bottom.

Worth going back and doing more, though. Maybe with the second hand indicating indecision?
