This one captures one hell of mood. Says much, yet I'm speechless. I'm not worthy of my loquaciousness.

i know im a bit late on this ;D but, ive got to say.

i really love this picture. the lighting is just beautiful, and i love the texture on the wall. i also really like the model's pose; i really envy how nice her hair looks xD and how smooth her legs are. i personally just cant keep up with those hamsters on my legs.

and im with many people on this, although at first glance i thought she was skinny, once i read that she eats a lot i felt a lot better. i use to be the same; ate all i wanted, but was still 97 lbs for many years. i just had a high metabolism.
also, i really love that quote. its very inspirational. c: i would love to have it tattooed on me one day, perhaps.

The world is too obsessed by bodyweight... I'm obsessed with proportions, did you notice that her leg is the same size than her waist? Amazing! It would make any woman feel bad and happy at the same time.
KahlaDelahay Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2011  Professional Photographer
Beautiful image, by no means is she too skinny, if you look closely at her thighs and stomach, you can see she is just tensing her muscles, a sign of an amazing model. She is only small, not underweight, and if she is healthy, then what the hell does it matter.

Keep up the good work and tell her she is a fantastic model and I'd certainly scout her :)

I love this photo. You've captured a sense of emotion, this exhaustion in all senses, that I feel all human being go through and can relate to. Once again this is a stunning shot, love all your work, but this is by far my very favorite.

Lol that is dumb, that you actually had to mention the 'stop the too thin' comments... I have a similar build as this girl. Just really narrow from the side...people get on to me about it too. It's obnoxious in person, really.
RylieOh Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011  Student General Artist
YOU TAKE ABSOLUTELY ..... ASTOUNDING PHOTOS!!!! (:D im the same way i eat more than my dad and im super thin--and my dad eats. alot. =P) anyways... yea AMAZING photography i love ALL of them.

This is so amazing, it almost looks like a painting and not a picture.

I agree with you're notice at the bottom of your description and respect you for saying that. This is a fine picture! Very nicely done :D
AyakeRin Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
I loved this picture at first sight, but man after reading about people saying she's too thin I had to look again, I agree she LOOKS thin, but being a Filipina with a similar metabolism I get it. Awesome pic and your friend is a beautiful model :)

truly art.
ooohmikaglitter Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2011  Student Writer
She's not too thin. You can tell because her upper arms have muscle and they dont get noticeably skinny between the shoulder and the elbow joint. She's perfectly toned, that's it.
I love the shot. Very artistic. Brings many feelings, makes me wonder what she's thinking.

i cant believe people think shes too thin!

vanessaglenda Featured By Owner May 25, 2011  Professional General Artist
This makes me feel pensive. Great work as usual.

PS. I will attest to that. Its just the way our (Filipinas) bodies our built. But we eat a lot of carbs. Rice, rice, rice!

it didn't even go through my mind that she was "too thin" ;P
if i hadn't read it in your NOTICE i wouldn't even have thought it
i think she looks really pretty (not too thin at all) and i really like the pose she's in

Absolutely gorgeous. She's beautiful.

Calling someone "too thin" Is just as bad if not worse than calling someone too fat.

Because if you call someone too thin, hardly anyone will jump up to defend them.

All natural healthy bodies are beautiful, and this is a beautiful depiction of one of them.
