Daily Deviation

Given 2005-06-05
Darkness and light, color and the lack of it, baring it all and hiding... Abstract Artist by ~A-Fool is well described by it's title, a very enchanting piece all in all. ( Suggested by sasshi6 and Featured by suzi9mm )

It's beautiful. Great capture of the human form. I love the effect the paint had against the camera. I also like the way hand only covers the area below your eyes giving the mysterious little shroud. I mean it's really impressive. Greak work! :+favlove:

Wow, what an incredible shot. I love the depth to it that can be seen with the colors you chose - neutral, but dark, that shows the rather anxiousness (looking at body position.) and then the lighter colors that resemble hope; so little light colors reminds me of little hope but that it's still there.

:+fav: Indefinitely. :blowkiss: Wonderful piece.

And you have a very well constructed body as well. ;) lol, you fit well with your piece and that says something right there.

Nice. I like the sway of the body (and the musculature ^_~). Very cool. I had tempera paint on my face all day (more than once) and the worst it did was cake and sting a little, but you should be okay ^^.

This is the one I prefer from the series, indeed.

I like the b&w contrast with the colour on your torso and palm.
I think the high contrast lighting is just perfect.

...and I also think your body looks *very* yummy... :blush:
