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 ^^;

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:

I know you've heard this a lot of times before, but something about your eye is very mesmerizing, I like how it contrasts from the happy, colourful...colours around it. :D

I may have an obsession with your eye macro shots♥

And in my opinion I think the fact that the food colouring came off gave it an even more interesting effect. Though that may just be me ~ I have this thing with drippy stuff :B

compared to other "candy eyes" photos, this one seems most like an eye candy to me. <3 purely love this and I even somehow like the fact that the candy's are not stuck in "order" that some of them are waterry and that some of them rolled over a bit, it gives a sort of a 'softer' look to the image. And the soft/dreamy look in the eye is what paralyzes me the most for sure :heart::heart:

This is really pretty!

An possible idea for an adhesive would be fake eyelash glue.
That way you know its safe for around the eyes,
and I personally find it has a pretty good hold, although I have never done anything like this with it.. hahaha

Give it a try and tell me how it goes, if you are going to try this again. You can get the glue pretty cheap at the drug store, under 10$.

Good luck, hope that helps!

Oh cool that's a neat idea :highfive:
I've never used that kind of glue though. Does it dry tacky or flat?
