Goodbye by Moonbeam13 Goodbye by Moonbeam13
I know.. why cows you ask....

I went to a secondhand store to find props for my superstition series. They have 'grab bags' of stuff for $2.00 and I was challenged to get one of these bags and shoot whatever was in it but it has to be postable on dA. The challenge was on and I ended up with two salt and pepper shakers in the shape of cows ;)

Aside from that I did have intention and something to say (as always I know.. chatterbox that I am) and whether or not I did that for you all, I don't know, but the exercise was therapeutic on many levels.

P.S Goodbye my friend, I love you.

As someone who really enjoys whimsy, I have to say this really tickled my fancy. I love the way that the other cow is reflected in the face of the other as well as how you captured the smoothness of their surfaces with the way the lighting plays off of their faces. Great job making the entire background black as that makes our two adorable subjects stand out beautifully.
Their snouts are touching is a really cute idea ! Perhaps bluring the body of the cow on the right a little would draw even more attention to their faces, as that's the most prominant focal point of the picture.
What do you think?

i do apologize the individual tagged you in the post and all i seen was your name and the comment was deleted so it took me a while to figure out that there was an original commenter and your name was all i could see.I just don't appreciate someone telling me im ignorant and that i need to go to art school when there own submission looks like rainbow bright threw up on it not to mention there portfolio is made from a wix site. I dont know what that was all about. But my original post was not attacking anyone personally or fighting i merely stated facts that neither entries that won the contest had anything to do with witches of east end and did not follow the guidelines at all.

Fair enough that you made a mistake but similarly, someone coming to my page and telling me how much I suck and how terrible my submissions are, does nothing to make my day.

I have to be honest, you set my day off terribly.

whimsical yet unsettling.. even those cartoony eyes look sullen.

This is a beautiful piece. The shadowing could not be more perfect. I fell in love with this instantly. Great job!
