Carve Your Own Destiny by *MichaelO has a beautiful soft painted look with the deep but optimistic meaning made me fall in love with this piece. I think it's incredibly well done and the message it brings made me smile.

Carve Your Own Destiny

"Sculpture is the best comment that a painter can make on painting"

I wanted to make another image with a similar stone/flesh theme as my other work, 'Timeless Beauty'… This time though, I took the reference photo myself so I was able to get the pose and lighting just right.

Thank you for Daily Deviation #3!

Model: Maria Gruner-Wride

:bulletblue: Favorite comment to date: This is so simple but it means so much to me, I hope I can crave as good as her. :nod: Bleupearl
