Orchid. by TheTragicTruth-Of-Me Orchid. by TheTragicTruth-Of-Me
Geisha.







First proper piece done with my new camera.
For my graphics project, which I started last year and I'm added more work to.
Model is me. I wanted to have a doll-like appearance.
The little bird is a christmas tree ornament which I picked out when I was quite small.

This is absolutely stunning. Your expression, posture, everything. You did so well in accomplishing the "doll" appearance, and the colors, they compliment each other so perfectly! Breathtaking. =]

I made you a favorite - I love this image.

It reminds me of my 'India as China' only much better.

Love your use of flowers.

Its like visual poetry - fragments of Anais Nin.

How is art school - dont let them influence what you do, they are not worthy. Keep listening to your heart

You have a great gallery but this one in particular caught my fancy. Great way the photo blends in with the non photographic elements to give it a very non realistic look.

I love the Composition; the headdress of flowers could get you in the next Starwars movie. (but then you probably don't like that I inferred that may have been your inspiration)
I prefer to think you both inspired by the same thing.
Did you give yourself fake freckles?

Ahh well if you did not watch the 2nd trilogy ....which because of the way he wrote them was really the first trilogy
Here is a link to a site I found quickly to give you an idea of what I mean; there are probably better sites

I love it, it looks so surealistic, but still kinda realistic, the whole texture looks like the colorization of a black and white photo, so it gives a big feeling of kinda Japan in 20ths. But I would not call it geisha, it's just too chinese. But I love it! Faving it!
