Inspired by a recent daily deviation shot, I went in search of portraits that could match the alluring gaze of that model (http://hart-worx.deviantart.com/art/Lorena-III-180913136). It turned out such shots are extremely rare, so I broadened my search to portraits that have a specific set of qualities to them. Each of the shots below portrays a model of which can be said that (any combination of the following):
- she is shrouded in mystery
- she knows no fear
- she radiates self-confidence
- she is fierce
- she has power
I went all the way back to 2005 and went through Classic Portraits, Emotive Portraits, Expressive, Fashion Portraits
There are a few works in my gallery that have gotten next to no views nor comments. I have been wondering about that a fair bit, as everyone seems to avoid them. That's why I would like to ask you: what makes you skip them if you view the gallery?

I just went through my favorites for whipping together a good feature list, but it seems my favorites policy played against me. I like commenting and fav'ing deviations that are somewhat lost in the mainstream - but I very nearly never fave the really popular ones.
Which means all the awesome pieces I came accross are not in there :| Now that DA enables us to categorize favorites, I think I will reorganize them and add a "popular" category so that I can at least keep track of those works as well...
Anyhow, I went through what I had so far for a small featurette until I have it all sorted.
While I like the festivities that come with a new year, nothing really changes, does it? We are all still the same, except maybe for some good resolutions that most of us will not stick to. I guess it is okay to try though :)
I realized it is important to have projects for the future, even if they seem overwhelming - like building a home for your family or a daring financial venture like starting your own company. It gives me something to ponder, to turn around in my head.
Yes, I think this year will be good. It will be a lot of work, but an adventure nonetheless. We only have one life to live, so let's try to achieve something for ourselve
