A commission for a GDR, RavenDeath.

theme: consoling embrace

( I used this photo from ~dreamscapes-1307 for the pose of the tender embrace [link] :heart: )

I find this piece beautiful... it evokes a sense of need and dependancy - though with a calm, serene resignation of love. While it is dark with a predominance of black, an emphasis of white in the center brings the two images even closer together in their isolation. I like the mixture of media as it evokes this emotion of them mixing together as an island in the darkness. I feel the piece captures this emotion well and it evokes in those who see the piece.

In general, I enjoy this artist - with several of her pieces on my wishlist... this piece I envision for my husband's and my bedroom-- as it captures this enrapturing closeness... that after of day of 2 children, work... we need to remember... we are together...

loved it.
the first feel i get is desperation.
then i look twice, and it changes all of a sudden.
i feel serenity. whether the world is standing or crumbling, these are two people who can stop time and just lean to each other.

I've seen this before, I don't know when or how and now I came back to your gallery and this caught my attention again. It's absolutely incredible, the way you express human feelings through real-looking photos painted in an abstract way. ♥

I have no idea what I'm looking at, but it's awesome. I really like your theme, concept, colour in your picture..

I've been a fan of your work for a while. (which is why I joined deviant art in the first place) This is one of my favorites. I love the movement and emotion this piece offers and always appreciate the dramaticness of high contrast from black and white. Overall, BRAVO!
