Very scary work. Those thorns look so harsh and the expression on her face really highlights that. Her back is hunched and her neck is turned in a slightly disconcerting way. The model's arms and fingers are also held in stiff, almost jagged positions. The lighting here is great as well; if it were not for the skin tones, this would have looked like a black-and-white photograph.

The only problem that I have with this work is that the model's face looks removed, in terms of mood, from the feeling depicted by her posture. Not too removed though, it just feels like a juxtaposition of two different states of shock.

Excellent work. I hope to see more!

Very wicked! Reminds me of a piece I did a while back!
Quite neat how similar the bodily expression of discomfort and anguish is portrayed here; I mean to say it is interesting how two very different artists have chosen to portray their respective subjects in this almost identical manner! Just a very fascinating coincidence! :aww: So cool.

Anyway, back to the piece as that is more of what should be focused upon here- I really love the almost-emaciated appearance of the subject, the pose, the uncomfortable position communicating a sense of breathlessness; struggling to breathe, to exist. The atmosphere here is entrancing as well through the lighting.
Wonderful model and wonderful photo work! Kudos! :D

Thought you might dig to see it. :aww: Crazy! Eehehe

Like I said, I think yours achieves the right atmosphere more effectively, but it is always interesting to compare!

Also, I meant to add or communicate that I like how you have done this pose more than I had done it! :aww:

Our chances given us via chaos reign in your favour!
This is just really wicked. :meow:

This seems to convey a metamorphosis--as though she were sprouting thorns as part of a transformation (plant with poison thorns maybe?!). Good use of color here!
