I think it's interesting that the pattern of the box is similar to the border of the photo. Although to be completely honest, I'm not crazy about the photography. I do, however, like that you included a reference picture for comparison.
The lines on the cats give them some dimensions - nice!
It might be the way it's photographed but I like that the earrings are not too glossy - making it look more like metal than clay.
The cats on Serah's earrings have longer tails but I prefer yours since the cat shape is more prominent - especially the head.
Overall, I think this is a nicely done replica of the original earrings and show your skills in making clay accessories. Well done.
I'm not crazy about the photography either, but it's the best we could do with what we're given. We use an old digital camera for all our photos.
The earrings are actually less glossier in person--there's some lighting in the photo, making it seem glossier than it is. It's more of a satin gloss instead of a super-glossy one.
This is modeled more after the official jewelry that Square-Enix released, where the cat shape is bigger and the tail isn't so long.
Thank you very much.
Your artwork was submitted to Artisan Crafts not Photography anyway,so it's not that big a deal. I just thought of suggestions to make your work stand out more ^^
I have a crappy digital camera as well. You should search for tutorials (on dA and Google) on how to make a lightbox for photography. It would really help I think if you have trouble finding good ones I'll search for the links I had.
I love a satin finish - makes an object appear more expensive :>
Oh I see.
You're welcome! You're quite skilled at making replicas. I have heaps of clay at home to attempt these things in the future. Heh heh.
Best of luck to you and your future attempts!
After I finish I can just take the poster board off then use the container to store stuff ^^
Some people use only 1 lamp so I'll buy one later this week. I found that using the flash on your camera works really well too since the flash is diffused - try that.
My philosophy is that art doesn't have to be an expensive hobby
And thank you
