First of all, the model looks great!

This piece is truly a beautiful one. However, there are many deviations similar to this, not in any way with the costume, make up, background, or other elements, but with the overall feel. If I were to point things that should be improved, it will probably be the positioning of the hands, plus addition of an element that will make this piece stand out from all the other photos in dA (perhaps the use of blood, intricate patterns, maybe even a story?)

Having said this, no one can deny that it is still one of the best photos in dA. It is sexy while not revealing too much skin (most of the time, I prefer that in deviations), the layout is spot on, costume and make up are just flawless, and as I've said earlier the model looks stunning. I could only wish to take such a good photo like this one! Excellent job.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
8 out of 10 deviants thought this was fair.

Starting with the make-up: It is perfect, it ties her skin tones to the colors in the rest of the image, but is not camouflage and enhances the overall image.

Next to the fashion: The outfit pattern follows perfect with the curves and shape of the model and accentuates her best features. Her hips are even brought into the image due to the outfit. The colors in the outwith are slightly cooler than her skintone, however, and allow the models face to be the main focus of the image.

The lighting: Enhancing all of the right aspects from what I've previously said and gives her a great depth in the image, and when combined with the photographer's post processing really makes the viewer feel as if they could wrap their arms around her and pull her tight, which gives this image a great feeling of interest.

The composition: Though I am not a fan of the top of her hair or her elbow being cropped off, I do like this overall, and like that she fills the frame as she is indeed the intended and actual focus of the image.

Overall: My congratulations and thanks go to the model and the photographer. The model nailed her pose and expression and the photographer didn't fail to do their part excellently as well.

I look forward to more from this combination of artists.
