the photo screamed 'loving the sin'. and thinking it more throughly, i think it must be about wrath (hate, anger).

i have a thing with sexuality and blood, aesthetically mind you, that's no secret. to each their own right? i dunno where i got the idea...just one of these things that hover in my head i suppose. please enjoy like she does, don't kill anyone tho :) i hope your screen is not too dark to see the hint of a smile she's got.

she is one of my fav models; Tiitta and that's a reliable Fiskars knife there. and the fake blood, u know the thrill...(i use artificial fakebloods, please read more here [link])

I LOVE THIS SHOT! It's so maniacal and murderous with a twinge of crazy excitement. It's friggin' amazing!

Would it be okay if I used this for a cover to my short story? It'd be like a picture to pull people in and get them to read my work =] I'd link to you on the site and put a link here to the site where I use it. It's not some fancy actually-gonna-be-published kind of thing, but your work is so awesome and it fits my story perfectly!!

I absolutely love this. I love the lighting, and although the blood on the blade does seem to have an orange tint, I still think this is an awesome piece. And my absolute favorite thing is her expression. at first you look at it, and say, wait, she's got nothin?! then you look at it longer, and think, wait, is she smiling?! lol. I love how it's a very, very slight smirk, but it's definitely there. It just keeps you enthralled about the possible story behind it. =) I was actually wondering if I could possibly use this as a reference. I'm in the middle of a charcoal series depicting the 7 Cardinal Sins and have yet to draw a piece i think is worthy, but I wanted to ask you beforehand. =)

Absolutely stunning. The kind of thing you can really relate to - not like I've killed anyone (recently :P)... but you know what I mean. Has a very "after the storm" sort of feel to it which is peaceful and chilling at the same time. Very nice lighting and use of colors. Good Job (+fav)

The title is perfect. I never noticed the smile until it was mentioned though, I adjusted the light on my monitor. Wow, it really adds to it! The lighting looks great too.
I like.. contrast (if you could call it that) of the cross around her neck. I don't know exactly what she's done before (why she's holding a bloody knife, who's blood etc.) I suppose it's up to the individual viewing to make it up for themselves. But it makes you think..

Not one to love my wrath, but her expression shows it wonderfully. I'm too much a goody-goody to be able to enjoy killing... but whatever boats one's float. Lovely image, all the same.

it's not fakeblood! it's real blood isn't it!? you've just been fooling us all this time. :P and i like how you felt the need to tell people not to kill anyone.

you're model is nice. i like how she's smiling with her eyes closed. Gives me a "moment after" feel when the wrath has ended and she's peaceful. i do get the impression that trouble might follow and she'll have regret later. but maybe that's just wishful thinking cause i don't like to believe that anyone would like killing. sexuality is often paired with violence in any number of ways. i think it would have showed through even more in this if the strap to her top/bra wasn't showing. give the impression that she might be nude.

I really like the fact that she has a cross around her neck. It adds a hint of mystery into the whole thing.

Was that intentional?

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. You're one of the few people who manage to make blood beautiful. Be proud of yourself.


Hm...you can tell that she feels the guilt of what she's done building inside of her slowly; but she refuses to let it get to her at the time so she can enjoy the moment.

Amazing.

after a long time this is a work which fits my taste. I think you should keep on this work, dont know why the first time i saw your pics one or two years ago i thought how shocking but after a while of confrontation with those works i learned to love them. these are the first pictures i saw of you and now i love them. Thats the point why im writing this comment i think you should make much more works of this kind you did a realy great job with that in the past i'm missing it a bit For sure you dont want to stay on one point and want to get on with your work but i realy think those works were special. dont know why but something is special to this works they are macabre and harmonic at the same time and they are very different from other works of this kind. Anyway my english isnt that good so i better stop now.
