Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + Tamron 90mm F2.8. Sprinkles on my eyes attached with water :XD: Not the best idea to use water since all the food coloring comes off and onto your skin :XD: Trying to use GIMP for editing. Yeah, it's going to take awhile for me to get used to it ^^;

Going down the concept list :dance:

A great piece overall, I love the colors chosen for the sprinkles and the 'fadeout' effect. This makes for a good impact on the viewer and shows your vision pretty well.

However there are a few things I have grievances with. For one, since you used water to apply he sprinkles, as you said in your artist's description, the colors stain places. With one red sprinkle on the far right center of the photo left a small trail where it rolled a little before actually sticking. Not only that but on some of the white sprinkles on your eyelid are surrounded by red colored water, giving them appearance almost akin to fish eggs. :hmm: Not very tasty. Perhaps next time you could use some sort of adhesive to apply the sprinkles? If there is a next time that is. :B So I took half a star off of technique for that.

Secondly is originality. The concept has been done before, some with even the same title.Examples can be seen here:
Admittedly all of the ones I can find are Photo-Manipulations, but there are also some with sprinkles applied to the lips. Due to this, I had to take off a star and a half of originality.

I'm sorry if I seemed a little harsh, but I try to critique honestly. I really love this piece and frankly it's better then all the other 'Eye Candy' pieces out there because you used certain colors of sprinkles and not just a rainbow, not that I have anything against rainbows haha~ Anyways, loved the piece and keep up the good work! :thumbsup:

this is so pretty! and i love how your eye is blue while the candy is bright reds and pinks and whites. The shape of your eye gives it some cuteness too. ^.^ Very cute

You were asking for suggestions on adhesives in your critique... I suggest chapstick or clear lipgloss. :) Both are made for cosmetic use and won't irritate the eye too much!

hopefully you'll read this comment, because I am just in love with your eye in this image. The position makes it look like a newborn, also how it's slightly glazed over. And the sugar dots also makes it look like a child wrapped in candy. You get so much ideas from this one little image, fabulous work :hug:
