Momentariness... by SeaFairy Momentariness... by SeaFairy
Momentariness..


yes, I know, not really a creative title, but do yuo know those typical/classical old school paintings with lobsters and fruits on them in those earthy colors? It reminds me of a painting and that is what I like about it. Enjoy?
Thanks for takinga look.
-Lia S.
PS:...the grain is intendet...thus the atmosphere.
PSS: And no, I nearly didn't have to manipulate the contrast at all..it was very dark and all, the colors were warm (though depressing, I think) I only had to pinch it up a few %. brighter

...and before i got trigger happy with the submit button.. i was going to mention that i like the effect that the grain gives it. I love the hair colour and how your ( im assuming ) eyes are closed. I love the soft tones of the skin and the sharper edges of the leaves.. nice contrast. Again, very beautiful :)

This peice is amazing, its getting a :+fav: for sure, i dont understand peoples complaints about the quality, i like the grain. the grain of a shot is one of the most overlooked elements. people often mistake it for bad quality as oposed to another artistic element. i love everything, with exception to nothing, about this. its amazing. you are very talented. keep up the amazing work! :deviation:

Lia, this is a beautiful shot, the graininess is slightly over-powering, but in turn to that, I think it make the picture. Being clear would take the focus off off you. Beautiful composition, really draws my eyes from your face through to the leaves. Absolutly beautiful. Well done. :headbang:

You have an amazing gallery here, and a great talent indeed. This one piece, though initially dark and solemn, has a form of inner warmth that I believe radiates from you. Maybe I'm nuts, I've been told so on many seperate occasions, but you've done a great job in capturing both the preverbial "good" light, and "evil" darkness. It looks lovely.

I have to admit i have a strong love for red hair, so thats probably why I love it so much, but her facial beauty is what makes this one. I know its kindof a weird feature to talk about, but she has a really beautiful nose! That along with her perfect complection makes her a rare beauty. Good work!

Too beautiful. Not only are you striking, but the color combination is just incredibly engaging and harmonious without being monotonous. And the graininess you mentioned is very subtle to me, just enough to enhance the mood of the pic.

It looks like an old painting/portrait.. nice job! If it wasn't for the lower quality then it would look high tech and take away from the style.

The picture is beautiful and so is the model. I had to go back to the top and look to see if it was really a photo and not a painting, just because it was sooo perfect.

incredible. The warm colors do a very good job of conveying a sense of mood. The red in your hair provides a nice bit of contrast to the rest. As always, you inspire....

Lia, this is a wonderful introspective moment that youve created. Very nice choice of color that added to the mood. I dont know why some did nopt like the grain, I think it work well. I think paperstart has just read too many glam mags. I'm not sure about the plant, though, since I cant really make out what it is... ts not flowers.. hmm..

The girl you painted is extremely attractive <> thats allways nice too! +fav

From a distance I would have thought this WAS a painting done in the old master's style.
