4:2 Yahweh said to him, “What is that in your hand?” He said, “A rod.”
4:3 He said, “Throw it on the ground.” He threw it on the ground, and it became a snake; and Moses ran away from it. (exodus)

Wow. If I could leave a critique at that, I would, but there's more to be said, so I'll go on.

First off, I love the mood created. The subject almost blends into the background by way of her dress - she is a part of the dreary, forgotten landscape. At the same time, she is apart from it - elegant, surreal. The tiara and fan behind the heads makes her seem regal, almost like the queen of the forgotten. The three-headed aspect was done great; it's not unpleasntly jolting like it would be if the heads weren't masked in correctly. However, it looks as though one head comes straight out of the main neck, while the other one is a bit off to the side - looking closely, that can appear rather strange. But without looking that clossely and making assumptions that a three-headed person would be symmetrical as that, it's done very, very well.

9 out of 9 deviants thought this was fair.

Bem, depois de ver e comentar mais de 300 imagens, espero não me faltar inspiração e palavras pra comentar esta aqui. Mas é claro que não vai faltar, basta olhar para esse trabalho tão incrível que palavras de admiração me vem à cabeça e mesmo assim ainda acho que são poucas pra expressar tamanha admiração por este trabalho.
Confesso que não conheço a história por trás da imagem. Mas será a primeira coisa que vou fazer qdo terminar de escrever rsrs.
Acho que a modelo com este vestido tão bem feito e uma cabeça apenas já seria digna de aplauso. Mas é realmente incrível a sua originalidade ao usar outras duas cabeças e ainda sair do lugar comum, criando esse lindo efeito com brush de nuvens. O ornamento sobre a cabeça deu um ar majestoso e de certa forma dando uma indicação de qual personalidade está no comando do corpo.
Quem sou eu pra falar sobre técnicas? Você é mestre e eu só posso aplaudir.

Parabéns e obrigado por dividir com a gente o seu talento e nos deixar cada dia mais apaixonados pela arte.

A wonderful dark surreal quality in your work. This is a most striking image. It must be great to be able to design and paint such images. It would be interesting to see how you produced the image. I will try to check out the other images in the circle of life series. Great job.

I love photography and am trying to get better at not only capturing the perfect moment but also manipulating it in photo shop. I was wondering if you could tell me what photo program you use and if you have any advice for a novice photographer? I really want to learn what tools to use to do beautiful photomanipulation.

Wow, great concept (especially with these three heads and snake). I simply adore the way you did models' hair. It seems as if they were resolving into clouds.

as I am unable to write an official critique w/o a subscription, then I'll have to do with this XDD

First off, beautiful work! The background fits well with the contrast of this piece! this is another one of your amazing pieces, definitely!
I like how you had positioned the heads, too. The expressions and how she is poised look very elegant, and fit this piece, as well..
However, there are many rough spots that I must point out.
I may be repeating more of what *tgrmatz had said in their critique, but it's good to point out either way...
Where you had had the woman's hand on her cheek, there should be much more shading if the dress and upper arm are darkened as much. Her hand otherwise looks a little flat compared to the faces.
Also, the snake that is casting a shadow across the dress causes two problems: the shadow it casts seems very clean, and the woman's dress looks creased and detailed near the bottom (of course), which makes it look too fake. The shadow should also not be straight under the snake if the light is coming from an angle. Also, the hand holding the snake looks very flat, also... Hands when holding an object should not be flat near where the two objects meet. It should not be pitch black, but at least darkened enough to know that the hand is holding the snake in the first place. Also, it would have been good if you could have found a way to curve the snake tail so it would look more like the hand is holding the snake.
But to end with the good stuff, the clouds you had put in the background look excellent! I have yet to make clouds in any one picture, and they look perfect for the setting... I love how the dress was done, too, near the bottom. I am not usually a fan of those dresses, but this one doesn't cling so at the bottom, so it's alright with me...
Again, beautiful work, just be careful of spots like those :3 Beautiful job, hon! Keep it up :heart:
