April 23, 2011 9:52pm sublime androgyny here. i love how ambiguous this is, yet the beauty is obvious. and also, how your work transcends digital painting or straight photography at the same time.
in my regular job, i'm discouraged from allowing such shine on nose-tips, such emphasis on the lighting direction. i think it makes for a much more glamorous pic to have the features so sharply highlighted.. so its always a battle of will to tone it back down for the public.
oh to make a living at one's own personal style.. vision.. and have complete control over the end result. *wistful sigh*
