GREAT work. I trully admire this. I dont find this picture offensive, so its not much of an impact or shock value to me. I dont think you were trying to give a shock value at all. Now I could only wish to be as great as you. But I would say that it probably would be nice to have some shadowing over the model from the halo to give it more of a real look. The lighting can also come from above to give it that heavens above meaning. Overall I find this wonderful. one may say that one has a chance in life because of the blood of the lamb. We are born naked and innocent in this world. I admire your work and your models. Great work!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
54 out of 65 deviants thought this was fair.

I was going to say something about her armpits but it's obvious I'm not the only one who noticed.
Besides the sudden change in shading in the armpit area i think the composition as a whole would look so much better (maybe even draw attention away from her pits) if the photo was cropped at her elbows. this creates a triangle shape (the sturdiest geometric shape) and puts some really nice weight on the bottom pushing the eyes up towards her face. it wasn't until i saw her whole body did i notice the odd armpits. She has a beautiful body but unfortunately that has to be sacrificed .
