beautiful work.
the only thing I can't get past is the no eyelashes.. but like your descriptions said.. the eyes are supposed to be darker...

either way.. this is amazing.

is the definition supposed to add a semiotic touch? its a beautiful manipulation of reality truly. simple but vast
phoenirius's avatar
Semiotic? I wouldn't put that much meaning into it... I just chose Allure because it was different from Beautiful, etc.
