Crocodile Tears

'Crocodile Tears' is a term used a lot in theater to describe fake crying. The expression also comes from an ancient anecdote that says 'crocodiles weep in order to lure in their prey.'
This artwork is meant o depict a model/sculpture that is so real, it is able to cry and in turn, lure the artist to her.

I should also mention that I LOVE SHORT HAIR on women. I'd say it is my favorite aesthetic attribute. I know that isn't a common thing for a guy to think but I believe it takes a very beautiful and feminine face to pull it off, like what you see here.

:bulletblue: Favorite comment to date: I agree with your love of short hair, not every woman can pull it off! O wise master your realism is stunning, and your imagination is as well! *robjoeball

EDIT: Changed the paintbrush to an airbrush / added paint bottle / added crocodile texture background.

Short hair really is beautiful. I've cut my hair short before.. it's around my jaw length now, but I like the style.

I really love your fine textures and details. Also the expression on her face is wonderfully vulnerable.

Funny you mention the short hair thing. It doesn't look like her much, but when I first saw the pic on your front page I thought it was based on Winona Rider, another doll that can pull off short locks and look dead sexy.

I love all of your pictures so much! And every picture I look at seems to be better than the one before. All the women look so real and at the same time like puppets. They kinda remind me of the film iRobot. It's awesome :heart:

(Oh, I have short hair :D)
