Darkness Within by D1G1TAL-INSOMNIAC Darkness Within by D1G1TAL-INSOMNIAC
Ok this is sort of becoming an obsession lol but yet another pic with blacked out eyes :D Tried more subtle tinting and effects on this one, tell me what you think :)

The Stock is from liquid venus [link] and it is amazing! :D

*EDIT: Ok, edited it again. Made it so it looks better for people with bright screens. My screen is quite dark so on bright screens alot of my stuff looks dodgy. Also edited some of the tentacle things coming from the eye, so it looks like its coming out of the eye and not just layed over it. made a tentacle look like its coming out of the tear duct and lengthend one of them. Tell me what you think! :D

I cannot express how much I enjoy your artwork, nor how deeply I relate to it.  A lot of it reminds me of themes in my personal artwork ^^ what goes through you're head when you do these?  What inspires you?

wow....amazing work
q.q. what program do you use?
i've got GIMP simply because i don't have an extra 200 dollars laying around for photoshop
my question being, what effects did you use to make this? i assume something with black/white filters, but th effect on the eyes is what really interests me.

How did you do the dark eyes?
D1G1TAL-INSOMNIAC Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2007
I used the darken tool in photoshop, on mid-tone with a low opacity and just went around it until it was all back except the reflections :) Sorry for the later reply by the way, I'm not on deviantart much anymore :(

She doesn't look quite human any more...why has she got roots in her eyes?

It's beautiful it's difficult not to just sit and stare into those dark pools of hers. I like it a lot.

So natural and thats why it looks so creepy i think..amazing
livindeadgrrrl Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2006
It's beautful, how did you make it?
D1G1TAL-INSOMNIAC Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2006
Photoshop :) just made teh face a lil pale using the paintbrush in colour mode with a light blue colour. Then added teh tentacles with the paintbrush and some smudging/erasing. Eyes were blacked out using the good old burn tool.

wow, i liked how you black the eyes out almost seemingly so effortlessly
megarathewarrior Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2005
This is INSANELY awsome. I've seen your other pictures as well, and the way you can manipulate eyes impresses me. This one, expecally, is amazing. It's nice to see something a little different ( and rather creepy ) every now and then. Keep up the good work! :+fav:
Punknitout Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay so this is the fifth time I've been back to look at this...I can't help it! I'm a VERY curious and distractable person (not a good combo *lol*)...and things like this get me. I am in total awe and HAVE to keep looking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
D1G1TAL-INSOMNIAC Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2005
heh thanks :D
sl4cker Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2005
Very cool =P

I like the tentacle things. Almost like a tribal-ish tattoo
enitsirkk Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2005
lovely shot. i love her makeup.
blindartist Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2005
I got to say i really like this one... it is very clean and the stuff coming out the right eye is clean and smooth and blends well.. so mad props on this...

Hey, it is really well done! I like how it turned! Let fave it! ;-D

i :heart: this one so much!

well done
no flaws at all :D
rawneus Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2005
very nice, i love how simple the manipulation is yet how powerful... the blackening of the eyes, the 'tentacles'.. you didn't obliterate her face in texture, and it looks wonderful :)
BeautyInside Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2005
wow GORGEOUS!!!!
osiddian Featured By Owner May 30, 2005
This is really unique. i love the effect of the eyes. it could make a series with your other pieces. they say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. these eyes are soooo creepy. they show no emotion, and give this hint to the viewer that this person/thing in front of them might not be alright. she looks so evil to me. i like it, and i like the cool colors. the whole thing has a pretty green/blue hue to it. very nice.
D1G1TAL-INSOMNIAC Featured By Owner May 30, 2005
thanks ^^ yeah thats what i like about eyes, the way they always seem to show everything about the person. And blacked out eyes realy create an inhuman figure. As though there's nothing there, no emotion, no fear. Which is the main reason i do it so much :D
Felipegm Featured By Owner May 30, 2005
Great effect! I like a lot the eyes and the lines comming out of it. Cool deviation! :clap:
manuelka Featured By Owner May 29, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Beautiful, eerie, mysterious. A fascinating manipulation :clap:

Whoa, looks awsome
GregoryStephenson Featured By Owner May 28, 2005
Great image, the blackened eyes look natural (as normal as blackened eyes can look). It also doesn't look like a manipulation, which is good.

looks good!
philipbrown77 Featured By Owner May 24, 2005   Digital Artist
Looks awesome. My only comments is that when you view it larger I feel the tentacles may need a shaddow, as they look like they are stuck to the skin.

philipbrown77 Featured By Owner May 25, 2005   Digital Artist
Your welcome.
D1G1TAL-INSOMNIAC Featured By Owner May 24, 2005

of course ^^

totally fresh!!
ayisse Featured By Owner May 2, 2005
I like the "smoothness" of the photo, and how everything is tinged a bit green. That gives the photo an alien/horror feel. The black eyes are perfect..and the tentacles from the eye just adds the perfect touch.
It is weird though, that the model's face is whiter than the rest of her body shown in the photo..It's displaced a bit but it's ok..I find it mesmerizing..

Those eyessss! ;p
