Somehow I immediately think of the book of Judges, specifically Deborah and Jael... except that your models don't look middle-Eastern...
is this from a book or something? Nah, it's most likely from something really obvious that I'm forgetting….
I really like the lighting!
I love the reference to Judith Beheading Holofernes- beautiful work.
Wow! I love the contrast of light and dark and that look... it's so intense!
Interesting. This one almost has a "Samson & Delilah" look to it.
Oh this is just beautiful. The heavy shadows outline everything just perfectly, and I really love the arch of his back. Their expressions are natural and not overplayed, it looks wonderful and doesn't camp it up.
A wonderful picture, I really like the move away from standard posing.
Wow amazing very well done! i like the fact he is arched like he feels the blade about to pierce and the calmness in her face like shes done this many times before. Very powerful
Is this maybe a take on the famous painting(s) about Judith and Holofernes (either by Gentileschi or Caravaggio)? Very nice work!
Man I Love the Dramatic feel and lighting a truly Amazing image! Even the shadowing has a life of its own wow!
Damn straight! Screams, "I own you. You will abide by the rules of my every breath."
Wow, such ferocity!
my gosh I love the lighting and fabrics used for this work- very excellent
