"Angel-flying is a natural job! However, its not simple at all. In case the student will not believe in fatality, that he is an angel ... he will crash! He will crash into the tree, the wall, the chimney, into pretty women. So, the main base of successful flights is FAITH. Only man who believe, is ready to fly free..." Peter Burda.

wow.. i totally :heart: this one

on the crit note..
the shading on his face goes on the neck is a tad too linear way.. that is, it ends in a straight line rather than one that contours the shape of the back of the jaw.

on the woo note...
it's such inspiring work.. the outlay and composition are so lovely and the added text sits perfectly with it

cheers :)

You know, i've always had this obsession with flight. I think that's one of the main reasons I got into digital artwork, the possibilities are so freeing, you can make yourself fly anytime you want.

This is an excellent shot! I love, ABSOLUTELY LOVE the colurs as well, which is something you mastered.

I love the way the shadow hides the identity of the figure, almost as if it is irrelevant who this is, and the only thing that matters is the freedom that is achieved in this second you captured in this photo.

So here's another :+fav: to add to your vast collection

this series is wonderful :heart: just today i found out about the older ones in your journal. lovelylovely. you make intrigueing pictures that are full of emotion and beauty.

i love the way he jumps, it looks wonderful and works well with the description. for some reason i associate these jumping naked cloth carrying persons to children, their imagination and ability to "fly" and believe. and run around naked and enjoy every moment of it. i wish i could do that too.. maybe next summer i will ;) but this is not as happy and carefree as the other one i commented a while ago, but there is still something same in it, just a little more serious - or more purposeful. the other one is of freedom, this jump is more dynamic and has a meaning - it's not just for fun, but a leap of faith. and i'm babbling again, but it's just because i really really like these :)

Nice:-) It reminds me of the photos of the Czech photograopher Jan Saudek. But this one is better, Saudek is not my favourite:-)

hehe thanks. Comparing my photo to Saudek's is abit of a stretch though :lol: I love his work. Wish I was able to see things the way he could.
