i love this art
it is so beautiful
i like how they took so much time on it
i how the flower petals are position on the body
the face is so good and how the lips are awesome
i love the sky it is so dark and how the skin is pale and i love it
they did so good and it looks like the girl is sleeping
i am happy that someone would trust me to do this
i am not good at these but i guess i am
i love this well done and it is so good
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
6 out of 7 deviants thought this was fair.

This is such a serene, yet striking photo--its very impactful in a very quiet way.
It's got an almost dusty feeling, but it looks timeless at the same time.
I love the contrast of colors, but also the fact that they are more subdued. The subtlety of the red lip colour it bold yet not overwhelmingly red, so the work is incredibly soft and hauntingly beautiful.
The model's skin is fantastic and she looks like a porcelain doll, while the frosted eyelashes and white rose petals make it seem like she is frozen.
The styling with the rose petals really reminds me of Alexander McQueen's feather dresses in the Horn of Plenty (F/W 2009-2010)

I can't believe this is a photograph. She's so beautiful, and serene.. I want to believe she's a painting. Such perfection cannot be captured by a camera. But it truly is a photograph. 

I think I'm in love.

A sad and yet hopeful version of Snowwhite with the redness of her lips like blood on snow or petals. It's inspiring like unfinished - the girl who waits... Maybe for spring?

She looks as if she's about to float away with the petals.
I love her fair skin and yet you've contrasted it with red lipstick.
Another brilliant photograph. :heart:

TheWeirdMaraudette Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013
It looks beautiful and truly a piece of art. I love the contrast between the background and the model, and just the bit of red color of her lips is a great addition. The model chosen also fits the part quite well.
