My muse Illyria Okami channeling her inner angel. Wearing armor by Mytholon (yes there is rust, yes I intended for this), a halo by Honey & Ember, wings from Alixpress.

Conjures up images of Joan of arc with wings. Really nice use of props with a very natural and attractive model. I like the lighting which has managed to catch the models skin tones, the armour and the feathers equally well.

Thank you!

Is this a portrait or a commercial :) Nice job

Laura Sheridan's picture

This is personal work from my series "Arcadia" but I've been commissioned similar works like this :)

I was joking about you citing the manufacturer's of the products you used....

Laura Sheridan's picture

I don't really see the joke but yes I always do, partially since I'm a GenNEXT broncolor ambassador and it solves me a whole lot of answering the same questions over & over again. One time type and copypast is ready to go.

of course I always take time to respond to things like this :)

Very nice pre-Raphaelite vibe you have with this. Interesting that this was the one of first types of photography at the turn of the 20th century as well; ie very painterly and taking on the kinds of subjects.

I've had the pleasure of visiting one of those photographers a few years back, Cameron to be exact. The book I got there is a huge source of inspiration to help me understand how to translate my initial inspiration of paintings into a modern translation of my own mind.

Pose is stellar, great model, excellent shot. The less-than-perfect armor also is 'correct'. Nice work IMHO.
