Tell Me No Lies by Mylares Tell Me No Lies by Mylares
A backwards jumble of mixed up words

I do not see them

Your straight face is only marred by perfection

I do not hear them

I only hear you and your truth

I am yours and yours alone

Love, Tell Me No Lies

We see some more conceptual work coming from our dear Kaitlin! Oh my! :D I am excited!

The words are harshly, but delicately and lovingly scrawled. They placement of each word, of each LETTER even is well thought out- there is nowhere that lacks and no where to full on her face.

I like that the hands either side are blurred and the only thing in focus is her graffitied face. Everything in this is effective and beautifully portrayed. I like the fuzzy, noise-y (it's funny that that word has two completely different meanings, but I'm sure you understand what I was going for) look to the otherwise blak background. Was that a result of your focus or was that a later-added effect? I am always curious about your process, girlie :D

Again, great work! I adore your concepts, and as always, your accompanying descriptions! You entice both imager-ic induced thoughts and textual!

AH! :fear: conceptual work= scary!

Haha just kidding. Thank you very much for noticing everything in the picture. It was not easy to take, that's for sure! That slight fuzzy-ness is a result of my BG and my focus. I set up a dark sheet behind so it would make the picture pop and then set the focus on my face which in turn faded out everything else.

Thank you very much for your thoughtful comments and general luff. I :smooch: you! :glomp:

Thanks you! I thought about softening it, but I think the sharpness better lends to the message. Again, thanks for the comment! :hug:

Did you plan where you were going to put the words? I like their positioning: very jumbled, yet orderly. And the ribbon is a lovely touch~

It was about half and half. And you've got a sharp eye because I did want them kind of jumbled and backwards because isn't that how most lies are? Hehe, I think I officially have a ribbon fetish! I think you may be to sharp for your own good...:giggle:

Sorry, involuntary spasm when I think upon the poem. That was the poem recitation Thibodeaux accused me of cheating. I HATE that poem.

He accused you of cheating?!?!?! The fat-tard...

Try saying it to Mrs. Everett. She takes off for pausing AND prompts. Well I'm so~rry that Mr. Thompson started singing in the middle of my recitation! Regardless, I got a decent grade!

really nice one!
what did you use to write on her face?
Lies..uhmm..our society is getting full of them, but it's always been like that..so, the really sad thing is when there are lies between the called lovers, because it shows a lack of trust...but, well..feelings and thoughts are more twisted every day..
however..love your concept :)

Thank you! Hmm, I used this water based paint for character make-up that my highschool drama department didn't want. It was really hard because I had write it all with my left hand (right handed), and backwards! :faint:

I know, love is really a twisted thing now a days. It's very rare to see honest and loyal love now. Plus some people choose to believe the lies, even though they know them for lies. Everything is so backwards now, it makes no sense! *gives up, too confused*

I totally agree...mankind's becoming (or has it always been?) so blind, immoral, superficial and stupid!!

hehe..I can't use my left hand at all xD..it's almost useless...

Amen to that. Not that I'm not stupid sometimes too, it's just sometimes I really wonder how we can be so cruel and live with ourselves.

Haha, I have the same problem! I tried to write a little message with it the other day and it turned out looking like some alien gibberish. :lmao:
