Motherland Chronicles #50 - Eurydice by zemotion Motherland Chronicles #50 - Eurydice by zemotion
For the Motherland Chronicles project! :iconmotherlandchronicles: (Follow us on Facebook and Tumblr!)

New piece~!! Only 2 left to go! 

My inability to title continues, so please, feel free to give your suggestions once again. Wanted to call her Eurydice but I'm not quite sure how that'd fit into Motherland haha. 

This piece was inspired by Antoon van Welie's work in the very beginning, then somehow Gundam 00 and Vinland Saga, and lastly George Frederic Watts. It's possibly the epitome of my anime meets classical influences?! 

Also, for the sake of users who don't have a dA account, I will upload censored pictures from now on. I now even have a permanent censoring layer in Photoshop now called nipple box. XD

This is, without any doubt, one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen in my life.

I will begin talking about what I don't like.
Actually it's only one thing, the background is a little bit too dark.
This is, of course, a matter of personal taste. Looking at the other photos (I almost called them paintings) I see this is part of the artist's style so...
I would have preferred a little more light, that's all.
On the other hand this is a way to focus the attention on the model.
I don't really like the nipple box (yes, I read the description).
This is such a powerful representation of pure pristine Beauty, I don't see how it could be offensive to anyone.
Again, my personal feeling.

Now what I DO like.
It looks like an amazing Pre-Raphaelite painting, the fact that it is a photo just doubles the amazement.
To tell the truth I keep looking at it and I can barely believe it is a photo.
I don't remember to have seen anything like this before.
The model is of absolute, stunning beauty, her features incredibly delicate, her hair almost unreal.
Those eyebrows and eyelashes are unbelievable, almost a sign of this angel's heavenly nature.
Despite her nudity, her pose and expression are so modest she could be the very symbol of Innocence (another possible title, btw).
The mild blush on her face and her closed eyes enhance this feeling even more.
I like the lighting of the model too, coming from above it emphasizes the spiritual atmosphere of the piece.
This artwork is like a glimpse of a lost Paradise, a world where only Beauty can exist and evil and sin are meaningless words.

And when Beauty reaches such high levels I think it transcends its object and becomes universal.
Looking at this picture makes me feel like looking into oceanic depths or facing the highest mountain in the world.
It is a mixed feeling of amazement, reverence and fear.

In short: an outstanding piece of Art, masterfully conceived and shot by a true goddess of Photography.

(This is my first critique, I hope it is acceptable)
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
2 out of 2 deviants thought this was fair.

That unsightly square blur ruins this piece. Life rewards the BOLD, be bold, free the nipple. You're free to Google the "Free the Nipple" Movement

Why not let a strand of hair cover the nipple? Or put some flowers in front? Lovely pic, but that censor kinda ruins it

If you take a picture of a nipple, then you should be able to post that nipple, you being a god of photography and all.

Well "Eurydice" is cool, but to clad the wife of a Man(here too a Greek GodWorship ) in nudeBlush is somewhat blatant Unimpressed !
How's the name Osen' Shanty [Autumn Shanty]? Well background is too Autumninsh and her Blonde-Golden fleece is La' Extraordinaire!

[p.s. recently I finished playing AC4 Black FlagPirate , so you can see the shanty has been somewhat a whimsical choice of mine. It is as if the golden shanties in the game are of life form in here! I'm on fire! I'm on fire! I'm on fire! I'm on fire! La la la la ]

First, such a beautiful piece. Every time I view your work, it never fails to lighten my mood as it is always so beautiful. So for that, thank you. (I always feel weird posting nothing but something along the lines of "This is beautiful" so I usually just lurk and view. Figured I should at least post once to express my gratitude and appreciation of your work)

To your description, I was under the impression that if you viewed dA without an account, you just couldn't view anything marked as mature? Have they changed this? I rarely try to view anything without being logged in. The only exception is when I am using my cell phone as for some reason it rarely allows me to log in correctly.
