Feels like it's been an incredibly long time since I uploaded anything personal. This is one of my favourite pieces as of late, done for my 2nd book and exhibition. Hope you enjoy. <3

The both of them were super incredible to work with. Thank you dears. :heart:

PS: The flowers are real~ and I really tried to do a cropped version for safe viewing, but it just doesn't really work. So sorry ;_;

Omg, thats all i can say. You know i'm a big fan of your works but this really took my breathe away. First of all, the skin color of the model fits perfectly to the background, the red contrast in her hais is a real eyecatcher. Well done. The expression of the model is really confusing i mean, the expression is really kinda different from your usually works, in my opinion that makes the picture really unique. I love how you always care of the details of the lighting because it is totally stunning perfect. i Would change nothing. I think a great other Idea would be the model look more into the camera and lay her head on her shoulder , dunno just an idea. sorry for my horrable english , i hope you understand most of that ^^; can't wait for more

I have to admit that after I noticed the model's hair in this peice, my eye immediately went to the strange shape of her nipples which are cast in the shadows. She is beautifully made up with her elaboriate hairstyle and perfect makeup, but yet her body is bare and her posture suggests that maybe she is feeling insecure or sad. Maybe it can symbolize a sort of beautiful melancholy, or simply that outward appearance isn't anything. Despite whatever meaning might be behind this photo, it is executed perfectly and looks like a very high-fashion shot. I would expect to see this in any editorial in a magazine like Elle or Vogue. It's another lovely shot from a gifted photographer :D

I would like to have this in higher resolution for a digital painting if you would allow it?
Very Klimt-ish, love it
I can't imagine how much time and effort went into creating this....  well i CAN imagine but I don't like to think about how tedious a hairpiece like that is.  it turned out marvelous.
