To Base OR Not To Base...thats the ?

Post by ChangingFaceDesigns on Fri Apr 29, 2011 4:32 pm

OK Abstract design I am working on I like it from the cheek up. Not feeling the wing thing at the chin or maybe I should shorten them a IDK??? Don't know if I want bold black outline or thin...still deciding. Anyway my question is that it feels like something is missing. Then I thought hmmmm maybe I should have based my whole face in white.

So white base or stand alone?

I don't think I would do your base in white, maybe a very light metallic??? Like a rose, or minty green or something like that???

First of all.... I LOVE your recent designs and ideas. Really awesome in terms of color and just being FUN- Also the potential to vary them but still keep a theme is terriffic too.

My feeling is, these kinds of designs actually look best when they are more asymetrical, and so, rather than add a base to the whole thing, I think I would try it with one cheek or the other either left blank, or with some more angular sections on that side.

But ya know what- I think your creative ideas are AWESOME just as they are!

I love it!
Maybe not a full base, but some more black connecting the background. It might help make it look more fluid & draw the eye across the design. Hmmm, I'm trying to figure out how to explain what I'm seeing visually in my head...

I just tried your design with a parelmoer base....ehm the online translator says mother-of-pearl ....do you know what I mean?

and when i was finished sprinkled some glitter over it.

it gave it the extra touch..... I'm not going to show you pictures because your design is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more beatiful I love you

i love the uniqueness!

i think there is a lot going on...

i think i would just use a shimmer around the eye...and, just do a couple of the circles..
because each one is so intricate...

but...love the whole idea!!

My initial thought was that maybe if I did a white base, I could still create the movement of the swirls and such just doing more outlining with black.

But now I am thinking what if I did it in reverse on a white base. Everything that is now white would be black. Woould it still look as good?

Maybe I am just over thinking the whole thing.

As always thank you for your input
