Daily Deviation

Given 2011-05-05
This Artist is an inspiration to many of us here on Deviantart, and the image itself is a mixture of Abstract, Surreal and Conceptual genres. It's incredibly beautiful, well constructed and just...amazing!
Water fairy by `alexiuss ( Suggested by BrownEyesTurnedBlue and Featured by Kaz-D )
This is another icredible artwork from you.

I've compared this work with your previous water experiment ("Sea Up") and i have to admit that this one has better lighting (it's not so strong), water looks more realistic (it has more details) and you actually designed her skirt and wings.
flowers in hair are another great addition.

Only thing that somehow bothers me is that she doesn't looks wet. You have made some highlights on
shoulders and flanks but legs looks dry although she wear water skirt.
Otherwise this is amazing concept which shows what is possible to make with water, photographic talent, computer graphic skills and lovely model.

This piece has and will continue to astound me. Like most of the things here on DeviantART I was thinking it was just another digitally altered stock. Though upon reading the artists comments I was amazed to find I was wrong and that this piece is not only very beautiful, but very creative as well. the technique and skill this must have taken is thrilling and the choice of a model, make up, and hair is very wise. Though I would have liked her expression to be a little more, whimsical and fairy-like I can understand why it is not.

The over all piece i very well lit and I adore how every aspect of the dress is water, the bust with the splash from her hands, the dress flowing from her waist and the necklace are beautiful. Though, I can not begin to question how the wings were made, I love them none-the-less. Very beautiful, and very well done. The hair pieces and makeup compliment the water well and her skin tone gives it a very natural feel.

Astounding and promising work from an amazing artist. The only thing I would change is that her feet disappear half way, but this minor thing is nothing to be over concerned with.

Great work and I am puzzled why this is not a Daily Deviation.
