Once again this is one of the reasons why I love this model so much. First of all she is a chameleon when it comes to changing her looks. With the amount of shoots she does, every time again she takes my breath away with a new concept or look I didn't see before.

This piece is one of my favorites. Not only is it a good example of fine art where it's clearly that clothes do not make the model or the photo. But that there is no need of overdressing, it's a beautiful balance between the natural human body and a few eyecatchers to finish the look.

3 out of 3 deviants thought this was fair.

A stunning vision that impacts the senses instantly when viewed - and gets deeper the more you look at it.

The overall toning is excellent - blue is always good to establish a cold mood and this one is definitely chilling. The "motto" provided - how trust is similar to a mirror - fits right into this since glass, mirrors, and reflections have both a cold and cruel atmosphere: simply because they do not soften or enhance what they show you - and if you shatter them they will cut you bloody. The gradient effect with its subtle hint of clouds/night/moonlight casts a perfect extra touch of the unreal over all.

The subject plays right into this foundation with her conflicting appearance. There is vulnerability and surrender in her pose but there is also resistance (shielding), restraint, hard textures and soft textures (the feathers/flower vs the metallic accessories). The toning effects on the subject are executed with masterly restraint - the shadows are not overdone and they are where you would expect them to be.

Over all - this is an incredible collaboration between model and photographer: I do not believe that this same effect would be possible without one or the other together. It is a perfect synthesis of vision and portrayal - the vulnerability of trust and the harshness of betrayal.

Outstanding work!

Just looking at all of your beautiful pictures. I love this picture. It reminds me of art nouveau with the headress and it has some great sci fi notes in the pose and armour. The colors you used really pull it all together and it looks metallic and organic. Love it!

A true inspiration![link] This is just one of many of your pieces I truly admire. The concepts and themes used in the styling and MUA are undoubtedly inspirational on many levels of my own artistic talents. [link] The pose and expression are great! You are an amazing artist, and your photographer is superb! [link] Keep up the great work!

Love your ribcage! What is wrong with it?

You look healthy to me. Some people are just built that way naturally. People need to get over it, and accept that everyone is different.
