Cosplay Portraits by Alexander Lloyd

For us, the human beings, there could be nothing more ‘personal’ than a portrait. You look through a pair of eyes and find every single person hiding some emotions deep within. Making of a portrait involves intricate techniques, observant eyes, and a creative mind because a portrait is not supposed to be merely an image; it rather has to hold the essence of the individual personality.

Nulla di più “personale” di un ritratto. Una tecnica non facile, perchè il ritratto non deve essere solo “un immagine”. Deve cogliere l’Essenza dell’individuo ritratto. Sia una dolce fanciulla dagli occhi languidi, un Rude vecchio con la pelle segnata dal tempo, o un bimbo con gli occhi tristi, il Ritratto deve colpire, deve farti perdere in quello sguardo, dolce o smarrito, devi cogliere il sogno di quella dolce fanciulla, o il sapore amaro della sofferenza. Osservate a fondo questi occhi. Ognuno nasconde un profondo sentimento.
