Oh my gosh I am an idiot >w< I actually thought it was real...before I saw the category It is superbly done and I am envious of your talent to do such realistic pieces. I'm actually curious to know how you made it seem actually fused to your skin
Not sure if SAW based, or just a coincidence... :3 Cute! Lol The perfect "cuts" are so clean, it freaks me out a bit. |D
And I'm sorry you have people like Jiyae commenting on your work like that. Body makeup, no matter how decrepit, vile, or gory it may be, IS STILL art, and it's strange seeing people on DeviantArt saying it's not... If that's the case, then perhaps this isn't the place for 'em, you know?
Still doesn't make it art. And that's the only point I was making. Body mutilation is not a joke and posting stuff like this makes it okay for people to actually inflict harm upon themselves. That's not my being ignorant, that's your "art" showing generations it's okay to cut yourself and call it beauty. That's sick, art should be used for better purposes than that. You influence people with the things you post, try influencing people for the better eh?
still doesn't make it art? Um ever hear of the term make-up ARTIST? This piece here, sickening as it may look, is amazing and, to many a mind, beautiful. If you personally don't like this, DON'T COMMENT! Let those who actually appreciate this person's amazing talent give them the praise they deserve.
How the hell are you doing to have an account on a site called deviant ART. Deviant means unusual or accepted standards and ART meaning art obviously. You saying this isn't art is like saying Van Gogh wasn't an artist. That's how irrelivant your comment was. Self mutilation can be an art form if the artist so chooses to. That's their shit. ANYTHING can be art. But its MAKE UP you dumb ass. That's why they're called 'make up artists' they have that shit in movies all the time. It takes real skill to make something that scares the shit out of you look real. And this girls got real talemt and I bet you one day she will be a make up ARTIST. So please, delete your deviant art because you obviously don't even know the first meaning of the site.
So you're saying people who make special effects make up (of a fake wound, mind you) are saying it's okay for people to "cut themselves."
That's like saying Van Gogh's painting of him lopping off his ear is making it okay to lop off your ear. And the man actually did lose an ear.
Tell you what, if you still think that this is sickening, go tell people that have tattoos that their pieces are sickening. Technically, it's mutilation, because the skin is pierced and bleeding often occurs.
Or tell that to some cultures who hold body scarring to be culturally important to them.
For crying out loud, it's just makeup. At least she didn't take an actual blade and cut herself.
Really, it's closed-minded people that find something wrong with a display of technical skill. A lot of people appreciate the display of workmanship. Why can't you?
