Mechtild, this new manip is beautiful and wonderfully done! The Frodo face you found is absolutely perfect. There is much (romantic) erotic tension between the two - I think it is the eyes. She is looking at him directly, while his eyes are resting on her lips... oh, it is ravishing. What a wonderful way to start a day. Thanks so much for that! :k

Re: Wonderful!

Thank you, Whiteling The Anonymous. It really did come out very well. I am so pleased you were able to come and see it, you are such a fine maker of these things yourself. (I just saw your "Bergdoktor" at K-D. What a SCREAM -- and Frodo is so positively cute in it!)

Re: Wonderful!

Thanks, Whiteling. It worked out really well and I am super-happy with it -- and I think what you say help explains why it works. It's the eyes. That's always one of the most difficult things in making an art manip work, making the faces relate within the context of the illustration. I like the Frodo manip massively better than the original photo which seems to portray the woman as hopelessly doting, but the man looking off into the distance, possibly at someone else, but from the set of his brow or chin, it's as though he were thinking harder thoughts. Whether he is a man about to embark on a difficult task or about to say, "I'm leaving you," her face says, "Don't."

It's a good photograph, but I like it as a romantic, amorous version in the manip's juxtaposition of faces far better.
