My favorite part of this is when he has moved away from the back drop and is sitting all stoic, surrounded by nature. It's really neat to see something so surreal against such a real back ground. It's lovely really. Not to mention the look in his eyes, it's truly beautiful. As for the process, and the concept...I really like it. I think the idea itself is very beautiful. You do it in such a way that it really looks interesting. This is a very creative way of handling a common idea. Seriously, good job. Keep up the good work! <3

What kind of ink you use in this kind of work?
You are a master, the black belt of art.

Is it hard to remove the paint after your finished? I have been wondering that as I went through your gallery.

It's weird, it's like he's come back a different man, like a sign of development over life and how things change you.

That's funny he came to the shoot wearing a shirt and tie. Then he's like "what? You want me to do what?" and has to strip down and get painted. lol That would be fun being a model for this type of shoot.

The painting process on the body looks like it tickles a lot :XD:

This model has very intense facial expressions. It gives an entirely different feel to the piece.
Beautifully done, sir!
