Same series:

Fire and Ice was inspired by a passage in Canto 32 of Dante's Inferno, in which the worst offenders of hell, the traitors, are submerged, while in a fiery hell, up to their necks in ice: "a lake so bound with ice, / It did not took like water, but like a glass ... right clear / I saw, where sinners are preserved in ice."

This portrait is so incredibly captivating... When I first saw it while scrolling down, I did a double take and instead of favoriting before looking at the full image, clicked it. I have fooled around with paint and different textures such as this, so a photo so skillfully composed blew me away. The ice-blue eyes powerfully chill the viewer even though everything about the skin, facial expession and the overall feel is gentle.

What a wonderful model and character! The specks around the eyes, hair and mouth give a clear icy look with the help of the light blue color theme without making her look dead. It's a magnificent contribution to the emotion, which would've caught my attention even without these important factors. I can't take my eyes off her! <img src="…" width="21" height="16" alt=":bow:" title="Thank you! Thank you! - :bow:"/>

I'm curious as to how you get that ice effect in her hair. What do you use? :-o

Really? so you just combine sugar and flour and put it in the hair? cool. 8-) Same goes for the makeup?
ScorpionEntity's avatar
