A fantastic work of symbolist optical illusion women are made of water by ~dark-zephyr not only has an excellent technique but is also marked by a brililant, tongue-in-cheek sensitivity and mysticism. ( Suggested by hippyofdoom and Featured by oedalis )

An outstanding piece! I never really pictured myself as water but water is something very precious and beautiful. It can be pure, it can be filthy. Sometimes we misuse it and it ends up dying :(

I'm not sure if I've commented before, but it's in my faves and I have to say that every time that I see this pop up I am still drawn to look at it again cause it makes me smile. It is a very well drawn piece.

Not sure where my comment went....new to site. So, apologize if this is a repeat.

How interesting. A solid figure in its liquid phase. Is there perhaps a subliminal message by your use of a wine glass?
