This is the final image for the Motherland Chronicles :iconmotherlandchronicles: series. I can't quite believe that we're here.

When :icontobiee: and I first started the project, we were merely challenging each other to produce new work weekly, to see who could keep up longer. I didn't think we would really finish 52 images. It's a little overwhelming and amazing.

From this point on, I will be focusing on getting the book's Kickstarter ready. Thank you everyone who has given us your support on this project and my wonderful teams for working together with me on these images. You guys rock. <3

This piece is inspired by Georges Jules Victor Clairin's Ophelia.

So peaceful and beautiful. She looks like she has gently slipped into eternal sleep.

I love this photo; reminiscent of a Waterhouse painting.  Really outstanding work.

I like all your work, but this one is my favorite. It has a classic feel to it like an oil painting, and your use of light is particularly masterful. I wonder if you caught the models expression on the first shot.

I have to admit, after posting a critique, that I noticed the title.  Death of Eurydice.  Ophelia would be the better lady,
 though how Eurydice died is open to conjecture.

Yes, channelling Burne-Jones, but with
Caravaggio and Bouguereau lighting...

This is a striking pose & setting-- very much out of Burne-Jones,
or, the light on skin from even somewhere in a
 Bouguereau or caravaggio scene...

You are channeling Victorian academic painters,
and their lush/sensual/seductive/soft figures and
backgrounds. Burne-Jones would b proud/envious of this!
  This greatly reminds me of his woman, especially
a sleeping beauty work I recall..I hope you continue
with this genre!

This image seems very fantastic. The colours are really impressive. Eurydice is shown inher infinite beauty. I like this kind of art.
But still, the beautiful red flowers are important for this story; combined to her lips and eyes...

Hey Zhang! I know you must be super busy and unable to read (or bother) the email I sent you about this specific image, but if you don't mind me asking, how did you construct the set? What materials did you use? Thanks!

Her perfect skin sacirficed to death's bony hand, there is something more to this, not just the loss of youth, but an almost symbolic loss of virginity: she lays down to accept her completion, and dies a woman. So much symbolism here, so much...
