It's time for watermelon! :D

Self-portrait

*Side note, "pepita" literally means little seed in Spanish. Doesn't matter which kind of seed. Watermelon is "Sandía".

Inspired by Ouka Leele [link]

Well, let me smile at this pic like that pretty girl with watermelon<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt="=D" title="=D (Big Grin)"/>
I l o v e it
much for the originality even if technique could be better.
I've seen many photos of fruits, berries and girls but you managed to show the c h a r a c t e r s
Here I can see innocence and pure beauty
The only distracting thing is the girl's skin. It has unhealthy tone<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/>
But her shining eyes are live and nice especially left
and red colour is bright...
Awww I forgot to say that I find this work juicy and sweet<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt="=D" title="=D (Big Grin)"/>
So my final word is: Tasty!<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/h…" width="27" height="27" alt=":hungry:" title="I'm hungry...Get in my belly!"/>

Let me first say, I think this is amazing! I love the idea. I love all the pictures you do related to this one! Also the picture is clear, no light glares or anything distracting in the background. I also think her eyes match perfectely with the red. The part that really catches my eye is how you did her face the EXACT same color as the watermellon itself. Another reason is I think is beautiful, is the colors of a watermellon. Even though I cant eat watermellons, I still love them they remind me of summer and I love summer Awesome job <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

Great watermelon expression; well thought out composition and colors give the watermelon a human existence. Using the face as a canvas works very well in the piece; the eyes offer a point of reference that draws me automatically. The eye make up is like a mirror reflection of the watermelon smile. Your model will now be known as one with watermelon eyes. The seeds across the face could me more defined, but just as the seeds are hidden and embedded in the flesh of the watermelon, so are the seeds on the face. Excellent work and creativity that you should be proud of.

i was instantly drawn to this picture because i looked at the red eyeshadow and the black dots on your face and it reminded me of a ladybug in the grass, i guess the green watermellon helped out with that. there are many things you could derive from this picture. it's such a beautifful picture. I really love your eyes, their so mezmerizing they bring me right into the picture! you are also really quite beautiful, i love the contrast between the your light pale face and eyes and the strong intense red and black. your like a currious freckled child peering into her future. very bold indeed. keep up the great work and pardon my horid spelling. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)"/>

Okay here for the freaks:
Rules 4 Commenting:
1. Comments like sexy and hawt are a no.
2. Fave or not. Don't leave nasty comments to make this fine lady feel bad.
3. U a perv, gtfo.
4. Don't go and stalk her.
5. No sexual comments.
6. Mess with her, deal with me.
Yes I'm a stranger but I'm keeping bullies away.
