I immediately imagined a frighten women or girl and some kind of monster getting swallowed up by the dark. There for the black background, the reason behind no real skin colours because I found the contrast of black and white and red more satisfying than if I tried to get some skin colour, also it displays the eye so much nicer.
While It’s not a Da Vinci I find myself happy with it, mostly because of the eye.
