Red Applies Lie: Wet palm by Griatch-art Red Applies Lie: Wet palm by Griatch-art
One possible take on a Where Red Apples Lie front page. :)

First page >

Quick doodle again, but I was pretty happy with the result.

MyPaint + GIMP.

I have been staring at this piece for a while, trying to decide exactly what to say about it.

First of all, the rendering of the apple is amazing. One of the reasons I spent so long gazing at it was trying to figure out if it was a photo.

The line art of the hand is very well done, too.

The contrast between the complete flatness of the hand and the detailed rendering of the apple is striking. It sets me up to expect a story about reality, or significance, or something along those lines.

I gave you a 2.5 on originality because the trick of using only red in a black and white image is pretty well established; the same can be said of that one red thing being an apple, or blood.

You've definitely gotten me wanting to know what "Where Red Apples Lie" is about, which is the job of a cover. I'd call this one a success.
What do you think?

I'm having a battle convincing my brain it's not a photo. I mean, I can see evidence of it not being a photo, but the moment I lose focus of the details the whole screams photo. Ha.

Heh, I don't know why so many have a hard time determining if this is a photo or not - you are certainly not the first one! Maybe it's the contrast between the very simple hand and the apple that does it? I'd say that's a successful result then. :D

I like how bold the red apple is compared to the the simple hand :D
