the beekeeper...mnoo. by cherrybOO the beekeeper...mnoo. by cherrybOO
well...i just wanted to try something different.
and although i dont actually watch mnoo...i VERY strongly admire her from afar...kinda in a stalkerish way :giggle:

the doppelganger photo contest seemed like a good idea to me...i mean how often to you see something so incredibly amazing that you wish that you had photographed it yourself...i also think its a chance to not copy, but to have the opportunity to explore someone else's style...to not just look at their photographic content...but the things that travel through each of their photos.

mnoo's photos are inspiring...they are gorgeous, colour explicit explorations, they have surreal elements...they are beautiful playful concepts of light, makeup and colour and they are deliciously lushious.

so yeah. i kinda tried to work with them things, with her frequent themes...and came up with this.


i dont even know if it remotely mimics her style...but its got fake eyelashes :D

The color and detail are simply astounding. so vibrant and they really pop!! The clarity of the photo is impressive. This is beautifully done. I honsetly thought it was a photomanip or something before looking at it simply because of the vibrant clarity and strong definition.
What's underneath your eye?

thank you so much for the lovely comments...im really sorry ive taken ages to reply.
underneath my eye, its petals..like the iris is supposed to be the centre of the flower, kinda thing.
i wished that more of the petals showed to make it obvious...but my eye started to sting from the eyelash glue...so i only managed to take limited photos! oops.

thanks again...really appreaciated :heart:

i like the colors in this. you must have put alot of time into this and you should be proud *smiles*

i went and looked at her gallery. she has really interesting pictures...like..hmm...she doesnt seem to follow one whole theme like some people do. shes got a few different styles. or so it seems to me

thanks very much...it did take a long time to plan it out, and sort out the lighting and things for it, but iam pretty pleased with the result :glomp:

glad you went to see her gallery...she does have gorgeously interesting photos, i think that maybe her style does flow through her photos...but not necessarily her themes? im not sure...i think there is certaintly reoccuring elements that are very strong in many of them.

*nods* i didnt look at her gallery very long and im not the most artistic when it comes to photographs. and so i can really say anymore about it

*giggles* i feel so silly trying to be smart about photography...but omg i just took a picture of a stork in my backyard! i think it got lost or something :confused:

This is awesome! i love the way that your work is so :sun: BRIGHT!! :D
I can see that you have put a lot of work into it, and it definately looks great.

How exactly did you do it though? I realise it is a photo.. but what about the
petals? im confused.. love to have it explained!

Lovely!! It is quite similar (i think) to your other work "Wasp tears" i think it
is called...

cherrybOO Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2006   Photographer
mnoo's work is incredible...you should definately take a visit.

thanks very much...:heart:
i stuck the petals on using eyelash glue (it certainly has its uses!)...and then makeup over the top. it was kinda something id been thinkin of for a while, then the doppleganger contest came up and i knew i had to it.

it is very similar (kinda) to wasp tears...i think that eyes are so expressionfull, and things just seem to randomly come to me for ideas...and no matter how weird they are, i like to try them out :giggle:

thanks tons for your comment :glomp:

thanks...make up just takes lots of practice, lots of willing friends to practice on...and many disasters.
when i was younger say from 9 to 15 all me and my friends did was makeovers on each other :D was well fun...but taught me stuff about steady hands and things!

hehe...yeah my eye...okay, well maybe it was nick's but SHHhhh...he didnt want anyone to know, ya know might spoil his macho image ;P
