Gold Rush

Healthy skin is surprisingly reflective and Maria's skin is very healthy. That made this image pretty easy to compose.

*yes those are her hands - her arms are crossed.

*If this is your first visit to this image then you didn't see the other version I had which had more texture to it. I asked the viewers to help me decide which one looked better and this smooth version was chosen.

That's beautiful! Amazing effect! The art of the gold melting & making it's way down her body is a great achievement. Well done, keep up the good work!

I've been chasing the the professional photoshop book vol 2 on foot and on the web and now I have found your art here and on your sight I could care less for the book. All your work is inspiring, I am teaching myself everything and when I see people raising the bar it keeps me motivated! Amazing work!!

this is a very cool image--i was just wondering, is this a photomanipulation or a painting from scratch (with a photo reference)?

It seems to seperate the mind (head) from the body. Her gaze is detached from her self and the hands seem to reach up to her as if to call her back, searching for their lost leader as she is drawn into some other plane of existence.......Fantastic!!! I love how the gold 'paint' creates an extra plane, the blending of dimensional perspectives is extreamly eye-catching. I really love it, which is my first such comment on DA. I would love to discuss art sometime and hear your perspective if you are interested.
