I wanted to infuse just a tad of Halloween into Miss October. Hence the headdress made of crow feathers and complete with spiderwebs and spider!

This one is a bit more fantastical that some of the others in the series, but I thought it appropriate for Halloween without being too over-the-top.

November is the last up of the series, and then the calendar will be made available!

Congratulations, you have just officially blown my mind!  This was sitting in my notifications from a group for a while now, but I didn't actually check it out till n ow because I thought it was just photography, which is not really my thing.  If I hadn't watched that time lapse video I would have thought this was a cosplay photo with some model; but now... words simply fail me!  I am following you for sure.  Just, holy crud...!  Thank you so much for sharing this with us all!

It was truly my pleasure.  I followed you on Artstation too, btw.  A couple of your pieces are gracing my desktop slideshow right now.  October is my favorite though.  I am a huge fan of fantasy art iand that piece fits a fantasy theme more than the other calendar girls.  I am still trying to wrap my brain around your incredible photorealism, and I must say, it never hurts that your subject matter is beautiful women.  Believe it or not, I especially appreciate that they are not overtly sensuous.  fantasy art is my hobby and I am always searching for new cool artists to feed my addiction, but the ones putting out your level of awesome are in a pretty elite group.

I'm a fan of ones that are not overtly sensuous, as well. I prefer it to be understated, with a bit of grace. :)

Your comments are so kind, I really appreciate them!

Yes!  Exactly.  I know I don't speak for all guys, but I have always found innocent charm much more attractive than overt salaciousness.  Color me an old fashioned romantic.  I am really looking forward to your next piece!

As usual your art keeps surprising me, it looks wonderful. I love the winter theme colors and how great it all matches up. This is glorious, I am curious about what that hat on her head is?

A completely made up headdress made of a combination of crows' feathers/wings and spiderwebs. I'm so glad you liked it! :)

That is very creative! It looks really good, I wish there was snow in this one since it has the theme of winter.
Great job either way.
