Venus by MichaelO Venus by MichaelO
Seems like ages since I've done some regular artwork. With my Olympic series tying me up for the past year, it was nice to take a break and get back to this style of art. Creating the gold effect in my Olympic series takes an unbelievable amount of brain power and this style feels like a walk in the park after that (although this did take a number of days to finish). I had tried this concept 3 different times in the past dating back 3 years ago but it wasn't till now that i finally got the right pose. She's a Venus man trap! :)

With 4 photo shoots in the past two weeks, this image is only the beginning. Stay tuned.

Model: Angelique Fields

This really creeps out, but that's a good thing. I watched a weird youtube video once, strangle since watching it stuff like this make me itch or feel weird

Just out of curiosity, did anybody else catch the significance of the bloom in her hair? (Many compliments for this, by the way: I'm a carnivorous plant rancher, and that's the first thing I spotted.)

just curious..

do you try to  make your painting exactly like the model or do you alter it somewhat leaving the model to be the base for your painting.

the painting and the model don't look the same.
