Apple by MichaelO Apple by MichaelO
I had fun with this one! It took two full days (only stopping to eat, sleep and go to the bathroom) and now i'm seeing stars.

I worked with this model a year ago and got a good image from the set (AmalgaMATE 3) but it was a shame that I hadn't done any close ups of this beautiful face.

PS: I like freckles!


:bulletblue: Reference photo: fav.me/d2yf0l5


Model: Natasha Lazareva

:bulletblue: SAME MODEL AS: AMALGAMATE 3 fav.me/d2dny7a

before and after:


:bulletblue: Favorite comment to date: Truly amazing, it screamed ''spring'' at me with those lovely colors, the light shining through her hair is amazing and truly let's her shine, the innocent look on her face and the just seeable freckles
makes her an universal beauty for everyone to behold

and strangely for one second there, I thought I tasted actually some bit of apple as well.......

This piece truly screams "Apple" , from her apple green eyes to the honey crisp apple blush on her cheeks. Then you have the golden delicious glow that encapsulates the lovely bushel of "apples". Just beautiful. :love:
