this is so gorgeous!! wow. i would not have the courage to put a bug on my face like that... not even for the sake of art... O_O... well, maybe... but lets not go into that.

this is so amazing. how did you get your make up like that? your lips are simply gorgeous.
is that the real color of your eyes? cuz that is freaking awesome if it is lol.

Is he really your pet? Where did you get him?

This is definately one of the coolest pics I've ever seen on deviant art! I absolutely love it! The make-up is incredible and the fact that it matches the beetle on the face... INCREDIBLE!!!!!

Project Lens is a competition community in which photographers compete in a series of challenges in which at the very end one is named the top photographer. Twelve photographers will be chosen to compete after try-outs and they will participate in eleven challenges, with an elimination happening each week. The last photographer standing will be the top photographer and will receive a prize pack from Project Lens including A 24' x 36' print of your favorite photograph from the competition, and a 3 Month subscription from ^superkev. The judges are ~cjrogers1993 ~nymph-in-yellow *MOrngeboy ~TOYIB and ~Filiacom, so you’ll be sure to have professionals critiquing as well as praising your work!

» Image analyze «

I do not often comment pictures in depth, but this really caught my eye at the first glance.

Let’s start of with the image composition where you have succeeded in taking good care of the lines, curves and shapes to get more depth for the picture.

This together with well weighted foreground, middle ground and a nice background makes it interesting to analyze even further and also leads the eye into the picture which an very important element.

The colors are beautiful mixed as you have been able to get some of the contrast colors just so right as it can be. This helps in setting the mood of the picture.

As the eye is natural drawn to contrast people tend to overdo this to such an extend that it ruins the picture. This is also something that your picture show that the photographer behind it has a good feeling for it.

You have focused wisely on the parts you would like to stand out to the audience to make them get the first impression of the picture.

What I miss is perhaps some of the small details in the shadowed parts, they are hard to get right but with a combination of the above and some post process in photoshop you will be able to get it absolute right in the future.

Keep up the good work!

you should put this as your avatar!
i love everything about this except for the cropping, i think you should've left more space so the face could "breathe more" especially when the head is tilted, leaving more space on the top (and mayhaps other places) would make this great picture a perfect one!
