This is diferent again. Where prior deviations achieved the simple task of presenting a well lit figure, this deviation sets up an artful & mindful representaion.

This atmosphere is inspiring. I love the full range of value. Whats more, the values have a place. there is a specific deep value shaping the hair and facial feature. There is a lighter value only occuring on the bra. A value diferent again occurs for the fleshtone shadows.

and then

Pop....that hot spot chiseling out the features. This is a style. This is a way to tell the story...almost creatint myth to spread out over 12 images and unify them.

As a figure study tool... it exceeds the requirements to the point of challenging the student to literaly draw the air around the figure.

Excellent deviation

This can only expand the choices the artist can make in representing the human form for study....And I still see room for improvement in the technical aspect of photography.

I am no photographer and i leave that crit to my peers.

5 stars all but technique which gets 4

Do you have anymore 360 head turnarounds that are at a good angle and are normal lit?

if one has to purchase these pictures to see them in full resolution, please, make sure the resolution is big enough so one can actually use them as reference... and separate pictures would be better, too. 
I needed a turnaround reference and am very disappointed by these. Pictures are too small to see the details, the head is not on the same level in each picture etc.. :(

-3- Once again, the exact thing I need isn't a drawing, but a stock. Guess I could try turning it into a drawing, if that's ok...

May I use this as a model for a 3D animation in autodesk maya? :) It's an experiment and since you have all these pictures, it's perfect!
