I loved how you manipulated the model's colors, lighting and shades, the details are amazing, the dark/light is so accurate and highly professional. the contrast is so beautiful and i loved how the grass truly embraces the garment edges.

It's like a day dream and the violin truly reflects the notion of day dreaming, the door also, its colors, beauty, light and dark blends with the entire picture and represents an opening to another dimension which is the dimension of dreaming, but as beautiful as it looks the door should represent the split edge between two different realms so i would have preferred to see a different background with different colors and ambiance behind the door's lower edge.

Now one of the ways to get around the two realms thing is to consider the model as if she has already entered the Dream from the door and she is already in that state of dreaming, except the fact that the dream realm represented in this case is void of elements and it can pass in case you decided to blur the background at least close to the edges by blurring a part of the grass and the sky, you can also add a blurred cloud so it could embody the vagueness of the dream world and the things we usually see but fail to remember. If i may also add another thing, a Dream usually brings with it images that are saturated with symbolism but don't make sense at first and it requires a psychologist to decipher it but it always bring a true message.

the lamp on the door top jumps into the scene reflecting the mood of late night hours, together with the stars in the sky and the clock...

Personally i decipher my dreams through the Bible, and yes they make a lot of sense, in fact symbolism came from the Bible but afterward the secular world took a lot of it and now they use it to understand humanity psychological makeup, i personally believe they truly come from a higher dimension, the dimension of God in the third heaven (what we call Heaven) or the second heaven (which is the plane right above us, controlled by spiritual entities in the demonic realm and demons).

Finally, i love your work, but i also desire for you to increase in all ways and boost up your talents, i truly believe in you and i believe you can do even greater than that
First of All, what you done with the two worlds above/beneath is amazing, your artwork is so beautiful and the idea is original.

Honestly i would have loved to have more contrast and more blur and smoothness beneath the water and over the sky, especially having some smooth wind effect, because the title is "Ocean of Sorrows" and the picture is a bit noisy and having clear lines while emotions are a blur of dark and light that overwhelm the person and makes it harder for him to pick up details.

The underwater effect is amazing, but i would have added more light reflections on her hands.

When it comes to symbolism, the Gold Fish symbolizes abundance which does not necessarily fit here (depending on the message you attempted to deliver) As for the Jellyfish it symbolizes tranquility and peace two things that the girl doesn't feel. Because a sorrowful person is rather anguished and scared, moreover he would be stung with the traumas of life.

The Clock is beautiful because emotions are related in time past and old memories. Finally i wish you all success, and my intent is not to criticize but rather to improve and i believe you can do even greater, and by the way the picture is already stunning! But i tend to love symbolism and details even if i also don't hit the mark sometimes. Wish you Well oxox
Amazing Intense details on her garment, the contrast can be more intense, i loved the bridge it can be richer in colors and a bit more detailed around the edges, the message behind the ArtWork can be more prominent and clearer but it's still delivered in an elegant way, the colors are so beautiful, the technique is amazing and it reflects professionalism but as a constructive criticism the edges can be done in a better way, the colors can be more intense as you add greater contrast (it depends on the ambiance of the image). But still, so elegant i just wanted to see more detailed vegetation on the edges of the bridge and they would have helped to cover up the blur of the edges
With all the pain, all the tragedies and everything going dark, there is still hope. Even throughout my greatest failures with the heavy cost of time lost, the time that can no longer be recovered i have lived by the moto:

From Now On, I have Nothing to Lose and Everything to Win.

Since then, it has been the Reason for my success, i had nothing to lose so i would give it all, and everything to win so why not do it and go all the way and risk everything. But i have no right to give the credit to myself, it was not that i have been a mighty man, but it was that i have a mighty God that opened up new doorways for the impossible and as i was hitting rock bottom in despaired hopelessness he snatched me out of the pit giving me a new life, a new hope and a sound mind.

Not only my life changed, but i did. For i became a one new man in Jesus Christ, he has relieved me from my burdens, forgot my mistakes and washed away my sins as i repented. With him there will always be hope, for Heaven is not that far away and distance for God is only another dimension. The ones who die in the Messiah will part the veil between the natural realm and the supernatural in a moment and find themselves in the most beautiful eternity for as the apostle Paul says :

“Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” Corinthians 2:09

Not only do i live by that faith, but i breath on it, i believe and i feel it just like i feel everything around me, for he himself is my Joy, my Beauty, my life and my peace.
