Painted Muse by alwaysxsecondxbest Painted Muse by alwaysxsecondxbest
For Denver Magazine issue 8 2010 (Art+Fashion)
Photographer and Designer: Edwin Santa
Model: Rose Macabre (me)
MUA: Amy-chan
Hair Stylist: Levi Hayes
Creative Director: Jad Davis

This is the last in a series of three pictures that are, IMHO some of the highest quality pictures in my portfolio, and since Edwin doesn't have a Deviant account, I wanted to share these beautiful works of art with you.

This particular picture ended up being the table of contents for the magazine. I wish I had gotten more than just one copy of it, but since they were in another state, they weren't exactly readily available :P

This is what true art is about;
LOVE, DEDICATION and FAITH!!!!!
Five people working together for a mutual goal and doing it to the best of their ability. The entire set was done without payment in any direction; just love, determination and belief in each other to get something beautiful in the end. I am so grateful to everyone that was involved in this production.

Also, I want to mention that this is a HUGE deal to me and to everyone involved.

<3

*EDIT*
I am completely overwhelmed by this DD!! Thank you so much for the consideration, I just shared it with the team and they are just as ecstatic as I am :D
DA, you're the best!!!! <3

Beautiful, eyecatching and surreal, I thought at first glance she was a figurine because she seems too perfect to be real...

One of my favourite photographs that I have ever seen in my history on DA. It's absolutely amazingly stunning. Everything is perfect about it. I LOVE the meeting of fashion and art, and the model, photo, and costume/makeup are all perfect and work together MARVELLOUSLY.

What can I say except wow?

I got to keep the 'dress', he was so nice! It was really just a bunch of pieces of canvas that he had stapled together :3

I fell in love with it when I wore it too, I asked his permission if I could make it into a real wearable garment and he said he didn't mind :D
