Abariel by houseofleaves Abariel by houseofleaves
Abariel: In ceremonial magick tracts, an angel used for invoking. The name Abariel is inscribed on the 2nd pentacle of the moon.

Something that was inspired by the stock itself. That's...about it!

Damn that's cool... Bet she'd rip your head off as much as give you that little bit of a smile that says trust me... just before she ripped your head off.

Of all your recent works, I think this is my favourite. Maybe because it's dedicated to somebody you love or something, I don't know. I think it really fits though, and is amazingly beautiful :D well done! bravo! :+fav:

Thanks hon. :D Yeah...I did put more of myself into this one than many of my others, specifically because of that. I'm glad it came out so well!

I've seen this photo done in other work, and to be completely honest, this one is my favorite.
I've seen other artists use her stock, before, and they all do a good job, but this is my favorite.
It has a quality of feeling to it that I enjoy.
Perhaps its my love of glows.
But the high contrast of the glows with the rest makes it moody.
And I love mood.
The textures build on it.
And then it feels like I'm looking at a photo of a being. Something a part of some kind of story. Something of a ghost story.
But the photo itself has a little trace of soul in it.
It's in there.

I love it.

Piece and Love,
-J

Thank you. :) I really appreciate the comment.

I'm glad you see something like that in this. It's very ...I don't know. Not hard, but random, I suppose...getting a 'feeling' in a piece of art. Then again, some speak to some people, while they don't to others.

Thanks, hon. :) Im so glad you like it.

Wow, thank you!

I'm glad you like it so much, and I'm very glad it improved your mood! I'm so in love with that series of stock photos that I'm very tempted to do another one, one of the different poses.

Thanks again, sweets! :boogie:

Impressive.. but disturbingly leaning towards evil for some reason. It might be the magnificent job you did on those black wings or the look of the eyes or something else altogether.. but definitely not a summoning I want to witness.

Altogether an amazing job!

And that's why I thought such a dark manip would go with the name. I certainly don't want to be calling on her, either. LOL

Thanks sweetie. :D

The old and loved photo effect is perfect for this shot. The stare is penatrating and the amulet witht the silver chain brings everything together without leaving it to dark or to open. Very nicely done.
