I love this whole concept. The rainbow look strikes me as a statement about the LGBT community, and the shot with the paint spatters seems a striking illustration of the conflict and animosity they face. One thing I find a little distracting (because I'm a little bit OCD) is the black lines in the back drop aren't carried through the model. There's also a white/unpainted area between the blue and red that could also have been carried through the model.

Overall, though, this is a very original and striking concept and I'd love to see you push it further - maybe with a more dynamic color scheme with curves and whorls instead of straight horizontal bars, multiple models, and maybe props.
What do you think?

Very wow. I like this style better then just seeing the picture because watching what needed to happen in order to get the picture is just stunning in it's self. Thank you for sharing.

I think the tenth one down on the right could have been a great picture in itself.

she is really a hard worker model.. and you're just beyond genius
THANKS for your works..
owlbum Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I am so shocked how she is okay with a man seeing her naked (yes I know she has pants on but no bra).....ESPECIALLY touch her....She is some great model if she can do that! I understand that that's art and everything but it's kind of disturbing. Great work by the way!
Moossey Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I feel the same way.
mad62 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Awkward moment in panel nineteen.

nice work..great dedication!!
alexandergras Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2011
Did you build something for her to lean her arms on, or did she have to hold them up for all the time you worked on this?
8-BitGirl Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
This is an amazing shoot, the end result is fantastic. :D
irisire Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
nice idea tha backstage;)
xCitizenxErasedx Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ik weet dat het mss een beetje te laat is :D maar je had voor de lijnen papier tape kunnen gebruiken, dan moesten er geen zwarte lijnen meer gebruikt worden.
Maar het resultaat is zowiezo, echt spectaculair!
Xyphina Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011
how did you get all that acrylic out of her hair? I know if i get any in mine i have to cut it out...

You are amazing :D
xXOnlyAubsiiXx Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Wow. ♥
HALsurfer Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is really impressive.
I have one question about the splatter version.
Will you show this to us and will you let her stand within it or not?
I think it would be striking to show both the splatter with model and the splatter with just the silhouette.
Spasm101 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
I really like the paint splatter effect you later did -- it's truly dynamic : ) Is that going to become a separate deviation/work?
BANGDK Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
This is really great art, and I find it very interesting to see how you maked it! Seriously, I love the concept! The result is really stunning, and I think it looks even better with the last version in the end with all the "random" paint. Also Caroline is a great model, shes really beautiful! Maybe should have maked it so her hair would have been at the orange stripe so you didnt have to paint it? :meow:

Anyways really great, I wish I could make a critique, but I cant since i aint partnership member. Also, not because I am offended (not at all!) but I think at "contains mature content" you should have choosed "yes (warning)" ;) That way everybody is able to see the amazing work if they click continue, but then people also knows that it includes nudity :)
Vulkip414 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011
How do you know Caroline Madison? Are you neighbors or something?
Vulkip414 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011
I'm just wondering!
Kebarzivo Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011
This must have been very hard, but very rewarding too. You're a great artist, and Caroline, a great model.
ReaperDudikoff Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011
Excellent work
CrimsonSteelZeb Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
beautiful work my friend
BowDownToMe-Please Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
I kinda want to see some more of the paint splatter photos if you dont mind, they look amazing (:
mormore Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Student General Artist
wow. amazing devotion to create such a complicated picture. :) looks like great fun which art should be :)
mamaOOD Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Great WiP! Nicely done!
SweatShopSweetHeart Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Professional Writer
i don't find the model all that attractive in a traditional sense and some of the lines not matching up kind of bothered me but you two work very well off one another. you seem to have breathed new life into one another and I'm happy to see it.
purplEPlastic Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
I have always wanted to model in a mural such as this, I love the concept of it all.
However, I would want to be as invisible feeling as possible and Really blend in.
So though I love just the plain coloured stripes, The splash art at the end would
be more my forte. Just a little verbalized thought, not asking to be your model
or anything hehe. Fantastic Job here, Really love it Ben!! You always have great
work to show, bravo that friend! :heart:
kotleta Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
Very unique and by far the most imaginative!
stJigsaw Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
I find this mediocre.
Lupine-writer Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
I love this... but that poor modle - not only did she let you paint her but then you threw all that paint AT her?! haha :) It looks amazing :D
margrietje Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Professional General Artist
i want to do that to! haha
especially the ones with the 'thrown paint' :P
always wanted to throw paint :P
Very-Blueberry-Pie Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
I hope it wasn't a cold day! :XD: Also, this is really awesome. I kinda like the photos where she doesn't have all the stripes painted across her, and it looks as if she's sorta weaved into the rainbow behind, if that makes sense :meow:
JillyKaren Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011
Beautiful shoot!
Krissudsg Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011
Woahh. I love her amazing red hair. :3 so beautiful
BluDrgn426 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
well that's something different. Really awesome for doing it though
johnathan-katz Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Pretty cool and colorful, especially the whole splash photo, blends in very well :3
Em-S5 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011  Student Photographer
You should add the photo with all the paint splattered all over...I like that one :) That must have taken a lot of work...that whole project :)
Tjoepoe Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love the last photo there. Soo Much splatter. :iconbadassplz:
