wandering spirit

3K Favourites
self portrait. I've kind of felt a bit like a wandering spirit lately-trying to find my place on this planet.
But you're free to interpret as you wish.

note: I wouldn't advise smudging mascara all over your face.

I love the details!

(And it totally reminds me of the game Hellblade - not sure, whether that's intended?)

The attention in detail in this photo is beyond great for me.  First off, I love how your eyes pop and that a bit of your cupids bow is showing.  Second I love what you did with the body paint.  The way you colored the black with it being filled in and then a bit messy at the bottom and how you applied white to the eyelashes and nose.  Third, the lighting is great how it reflects off your cheekbones and in your eyes.  This is an excellent photo.

Haha, I actually wasn't trying to look like a cat. That happened quite on accident. Thank you!

This is so striking and beautiful!! I love how it focuses on the eyes, the blue-green of which contrasts so nicely against the stark black of the paint. Good idea with the white mascara for the lashes; it definitely adds another layer of drama! The muted background really looks great too; the colors combine well with the foreground and complement it without being distracting. Beautiful photo!
