Motherland Chronicles #49 by zemotion Motherland Chronicles #49 by zemotion
For the Motherland Chronicles project! :iconmotherlandchronicles: (Follow us on Facebook and Tumblr!)

No idea about what to title again, please totally feel free to make suggestions. ._. Managed to weave some pearls into Germaine's hair for this shoot, rather happy with how it turned out.

I feel terrible that we're so behind schedule for Motherland right now, but only 3 more pieces left! I've been waiting for some new dresses and production got delayed for those, so please be patient with me. Thank you all.

i really like this! the glow from the candle subtly showing on parts of her is really well done, very good detail! :) i maybe would of used a different background to make her pop more but of course that entirely up to the artist. Is this a photo manipulation? or is something you did a shoot for? regardless, again i think it's very well done. Everything flows from her wardrobe to her make up, the shadows are where they should be. And that glow! I can't get over that glow! lol love it and its different then other photos I've seen :)

This is beautiful! I love the lighting, the colors, and the pose. They're all quite fantastic. I also adore the little touches like the petals in her hair and the candle in hair not to mention the exquisite clothing, feather, and jewels. It all makes this all the more fantastic. If I were to critique anything I would simply say it were a little too immersed in green. I would have loved to see some other colors in this piece, and yet I'm not sure if that would have detracted from the overall aim of this piece or not. At any rate, I think this is absolutely stunning and perfect.

Your work is exquisite!  

Possible names for this piece:  Gamayun, Sirin or Alkonost from Russian Mythology.  Also, Harpies, Valkyries and Sirens have often been depicted with wings or feathers.  

I think she is most like Gamayun, a prophetic bird of Russian folklore, symbol of wisdom and knowledge.  An oracle of sorts, usually depicted with a bird's body and woman's head.

She makes me think of the Unseelie Court; Queen Mab, Morgana or some other darker lady.
