stroke me by PixieCold is an absolutely stunning macro capture with breath-taking colours and a daring set-up. There is seemingly no end to the limits of this unconventional artist as she exceeds expectations with her photographic and make-up talents.

This is visually stunning! The bright colors really make it 'pop out.' I love ow the eyes really match the sparkle underneath her eye. Her eyelashes really look like they're blended in with the flower. The snail looks so elegant and peaceful. She almost looks like she is a 'queen-of-the-forest.' Or, 'queen-of-the-snails.' I truly love all the colors. It mixes up the cool colors, and hot colors. The shell blends beautifully with the flower and her eye. The highlight in the eye makes it look almost fiction! I love how you can see every detail and every texture as if we were really there. This is such a beautiful masterpiece that I would hang on my wall. Such elegance!

awww ..... our baby snail is all grown up. *sniffle* lol sry i just critiqued ur baby snail one. i think i like this one even more. its totally in focus, and its more clean and sharp then ur other. gosh doesnt having that on ur face freak u out?? lol!!! ur eyebrows r perfect in this pic! since the snail has quite a bit of black on him, i would take the petals and put black stripes or make the tips of the petals black. u dont have to i just think it would b nice. again AWESOME MAKEUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of I'll start by saying I love the make-up. The red eyelashes contrast with the blue and green of the glitter and eye shadow.I have to say I'm amazed that you can get a snail so close to your eye. I love the yellow flower against the greeny yellow and black spiral of the snails shell. I love that you made the snail look friendly and you look so relaxed I add to the (warmth)? and comfort of the piece. All I can say is its hard to find a single flaw in this piece and I am so amazed, WeLL DoNE!

I love this snail so close to the eye...and that's a beautiful snail, not just a grey snail...I wonder if they are common in Germany, I've never seen one like this in Belgium !! The yellow lines on its shell match perfectly the yellow flower ! And from the way the snail is out of its shell with its antennae extended, you can tell it's very healthy... and in a hurry to go back to the lettuce !
I also like the red thick eye lashes and the blue color around the eye... what I don't understand is the kind of reddish stains on the end of some petals...is it because the flower isn't very fresh or is it done on purpose ?? I think the flower, which is a major part of the work, should look "yellower" and healthier !
In any case, that's a great job, although not very practical to go shopping !! :-)

I do hope all that glitter didn't hurt the poor snail though...

The way the snail coast around the edge of the eye is a somewhat suttle yet all too human indication of it's profound freindliness. The open and somewhat defiantly relaxed eye is a centerpeice for the comfort of the whole picture. The underlying theme is that the person bearing the snail is confortable with nature and is not put off by any asthetically perceived messiness of it. It is overall well styled and framed. I must say I adore the reddish eyelashed as they compliment the overall color sceme of the picture. I must finish by saying this is a simple yet obvious reminder of the many forms art can take, when it is all said and done it is defficult to find a flaw with this so well done and nice.
This is absolutely amazing!!
