AmalgaMATE Steps

My style fits well with cyborg themes and I would call my first attempt here a success.

I really liked the pose from this reference image. It seemed very, stern and strong, yet feminine. I tried to figure out how to retain those elements while also, doing what I do best, enhancing the image into something different.

As for the name, AmalgaMATE, it means to mix two things to make them one. I see that here as being the merger between technology and humanity. And, I suppose, you could also see this as being sexual in nature but that's a metaphor for another day.

Original Photographer: George Mayer
Model: Nadezda Korobkova

:bulletblue: Favorite comment to date: I saw this on the front page, before even checking my watch and I knew it was your work. and... I totally LOVE this piece - from the technical point... your style and her eyes... oh my gosh... her eyes! `miskis

Nice work, man! Recently I made couple of works like this, but, of course, not in your level :)

Maybe, in future, I'll reworked it and post here...
