this picture has great composition. i love how the colors put together in this picture just make both of them just pop! the only thing i would suggest to do different is next time to also make your eyebrows blue also. it would just tie the whole thing together. i just love the position you are in that makes it seem so questionable? (i dont know the word i wanna use) ^^ ...sacred? i dont know. i just know that this picture has feeling and amazing colors. youre selling that fruit and now i wanna eat it haha just kidding. keep it up!
What do you think?

I -love- the way the colors simply pop off the image. The contrasting colors, the paleness of your flesh in contrast to the blue of your hair and the vivid orange of the fruit make it seem all the more intense.

I love the fact that you took the blue completely throughout the picture from your fingernails to eyeshadow and even your eyebrows. Even the blue of your eyes pops amidst all the vibrant blue that fills the image. The composition of the shot is perfect, and I love the look on your face in the image.

Truth be told, it has me craving an orange now and I can't get one until tomorrow. I love it.

You really have great ideias for the use of colours. The direction of your view - direct to the spectator - is very provocative. The contrast between orange and blue is very beautiful! Congrats!

I love the contrast between the orange and the blue. It makes the orange seem almost unreal. Like in alexiuss's RA art, where all the reds look so bright and luminous and unreal against the grey-and-blue wasteland.

blincv Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012
not one of my favourites of your series. the face is expressive, that is for sure, i just dont like the expression. it seems very sneaky, intigrant... and in this way kinda unrelated to the fruit. in your other pictures it always seems like the fruit becomes a part of you (in a positive way), here this is not the case. the nail polish seems kinda cheap and unclean, as if youre biting nails. and the posture gives me the expression im looking at the "Hunchback of Notre Dame". colors are stunning as always. sorry if this sounds too harsh.

Dynamic colouring!! :)
ImABritishTeapot Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012  Student General Artist

This is a great piece of photography. Well done :clap:

I love how the colours harmonize with each other. :D

I was wondering if you would allow me to traditionally draw & colour this. Also if yes if I could submit it to deviant art & submit it into my art scholarship? Thanks :D

Fantastic. I love how you can make such an innocent and chill fruit so sexy and intense~

Melody-Guren Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The colors are perfectly combined with the orange. The hair beautifully, looks like he's done with a "paste" which creates a good trabjo in the hair. Pretty good. :D :love:

I only have one thing to say-
You are an inspiration and this is...everything you do is beautifully exquisite.
PlymouthFury Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love the colors, the look on your face is kind of a "come and get it" look which I like a lot too. the only thing is you have no neck >.< lol over all it work but if you look at it for more than a few seconds it's like wait...where's her neck? But that's the only things about this that bothers me. Otherwise another great job :D

Your eyes...

really (!) good
eyes, orange and hair are all strong 'rivals' - but together a stronger composition
