Sea Maiden by michellemonique Sea Maiden by michellemonique
Model: Amber
MUA: Michelle Acosta MM# 1244818
Photographer: Michelle Monique MM#756829

More from this shoot will be uploaded soon!
There seems to be some confusion as to where I got the photo of the model. It is not a stock photo, thus no need for a reference. I had a photoshoot with her so it is copyrighted as mine.

cool idea with the smokey hair and all, but it kinda looks like her head was cut off...

This kind of reminds me Hela from the latest Thor comic series. Great job.

I'm curious - where did you get the idea to transform her hair into smoke, if she's a sea maiden? Don't get me wrong, you did an excellent job and it's a beautiful piece, I just wondered, because smoke isn't usually associated with the sea. Anyway, you're quite talented and I love this. :love:

I'm a drawer, not a photographer or manipulator, but looking at it
i almost direct thought of the sirenes of Greek Mythology.. The girls sitting
on the rocks, singing, to make captains of big ships make some wrong
decisions.. With all your work with make-up etc.. I think you could make
that work! Anyway, love your photographs, keep up the good work!

I really love her smoke hair, and the tilt to the world. The only incongruity that my eyes really fixed on and won't let go is that she's wearing *shoes*. =/ Other than that, I really like it!
