Daily Deviation

Given 2014-04-17
stroke me by PixieCold is an absolutely stunning macro capture with breath-taking colours and a daring set-up. There is seemingly no end to the limits of this unconventional artist as she exceeds expectations with her photographic and make-up talents. ( Suggested by psoty and Featured by Kaz-D )
:iconrjl7983:
The way the snail coast around the edge of the eye is a somewhat suttle yet all too human indication of it's profound freindliness. The open and somewhat defiantly relaxed eye is a centerpeice for the comfort of the whole picture. The underlying theme is that the person bearing the snail is confortable with nature and is not put off by any asthetically perceived messiness of it. It is overall well styled and framed. I must say I adore the reddish eyelashed as they compliment the overall color sceme of the picture. I must finish by saying this is a simple yet obvious reminder of the many forms art can take, when it is all said and done it is defficult to find a flaw with this so well done and nice.
What do you think?

:icondarkwolf10011:
First of I'll start by saying I love the make-up. The red eyelashes contrast with the blue and green of the glitter and eye shadow.I have to say I'm amazed that you can get a snail so close to your eye. I love the yellow flower against the greeny yellow and black spiral of the snails shell. I love that you made the snail look friendly and you look so relaxed I add to the (warmth)? and comfort of the piece. All I can say is its hard to find a single flaw in this piece and I am so amazed, WeLL DoNE!

Wow, that is really beautiful. :blush: I never thought I'd call a snail beautiful, but this picture makes it so! The beautiful blue color around your eye enhances the eye color and matches beautifully with the yellow flower petals. Lastly, the red eyelashes ties in much better than I would originally think with the rest of the colors, especially since it's just a small touch.
And the angle of the photo is cool too, I love it. :love:
