Soul Searching by MichaelO Soul Searching by MichaelO
~ I know you're in there somewhere ~





High quality print available here: [link]

Model: Megan Solomon, New Zealand

:bulletblue: Favorite comment to date: This is incredibly beautiful and for some reason I'm touched by every element of it! From the subject matter (genius - wish I'd thought of it) to the subtleties of painting (the green glow reflected on her white dress).. the best thing I've seen in a long time! ~anna15

Cool idea, I tried something similar here too... [link] except it was set up as an actual reflection and rendered... (the set up is shown linked to in the comments if you are interested!)

...just found your gallery, and your work is amazing! `)

Okay, that's it. I can't get enough of your artworks.
Unlike some, you have a wonderful concept behind everything and I guess that makes the your works more substantial, more meaningful.

I love your ideas.

I love all the detail put into this. The eye is a beautiful green-blue/turquoise color. Everything looks so... 3D. From the eyelashes, to the white of the eye. And at the same time you can see the rough, brush like strokes put into it. It's a very nice texture. I feel like I could tap the girl on the back and she's going to jump up in surprise! Really amazing (=

I love the concepts behind all of your work! The eye really grabbed my attention though. The idea is especially true for visual persons...which I think it's very great you used the eye as the main focus. :love:
