Some people want realism - perfect copies in visual media, just like a photo or a carefully-painted portrait (oftentimes these lack feeling - how many times have we seen a perfect portrait with a dead expression?). Others are touched by fresher, more inventive means of expression - records of shape, light, and color which capture the mood and general form but not the crisp details of the real thing.
very interesting post indeed, kali. thank you. just as long as you allow that others may think this "inventiveness" and "mood" etc. is better captured by emma3 than emma2(but both pics are just dandy with me).
