ABOUT THE ART
Fifth installment from the spectr.es series. I had to do some stuff I didn't plan, and scrap other ideas I had for Kasumi here. The first problem was; this chick just doesn't say anything very poignant, and no one really says anything poignant to her or about her. What I could find was all cliches (Silence is Golden) or short. So I ran with a short quote and tweaked the text area a little to work with it. Hope this works for people.
As well, the depth of blacks I used here and how close together in hue they are may not play nice with some monitors. I had 4 monitors at my disposal to test it on; and since they're all consumer level and uncalibrated, I hope they gave me a decent 'average' of what the average person is going to be seeing when they see this. In short: Kasumi's strength is her silent, sneaky, cloaking goodness. I figured the best way to represent this was to have her outfit nearly blend in to the background and use a very slim range of grayscale. The added bonus was her eye screen and face really pop out from the darkness, which is a nice touch of her personality in the image.
Kasumi's release also marks the first release since prints of these became available through society6.com. I recommend the "Medium" size option if you feel inclined to purchase any.
