I made this image for an organization which fights breast cancer calles “CRIS contra el cancer”. I was going to upload it the 19th of this month, since it’s the international day for the fight against breast cancer, but I wasn’t able to do it!

Greek Mythology associates the lotus flower with a beautiful goddess who as she was running away into the depths of a forest from something/someone that frightened her, she landed into a swamp called Lotus, where she fell and began to sink. After fighting for a longtime, the goddess managed to stay afloat by turning into a beautiful flower with long petals, known now as lotus flower. Therefore, the lotus flower represents that it is possible to triumph over any adversity. This image attempts to show that will helps in the fight against any difficulty. Although help from others is needed, the most important help comes from oneself. That’s why I used myself as both models, she is helping herself.
Creé esta imagen para una asociación que lucha contra el cancer de mama, llamada “CRIS contra el cáncer”. Iba a subirla el día 19 de este mes, ya que fue el día internacional de la lucha contra el cáncer de mama, ¡pero no me fue possible!

La mitología griega asocia la flor de loto con una hermosa diosa que huyendo asustada se adentró en un bosque, donde fue a parar a un pantano llamado Loto, donde cayó y se hundió. Ese lugar simboliza las dificultades que nos pone la vida. Tras una larga lucha, la joven diosa logró salir a flote convertida en una hermosa flor de largos pétalos, la que hoy conocemos como flor de loto. Por ello, la flor de loto representa que es posible triunfar sobre la adversidad. En esta obra intento mostrar que la voluntad ayuda en la lucha contra los problemas. Aunque sea precisa la ayuda externa la ayuda más importante proviene de uno mismo. Por eso me he utilizado como la misma modelo; ella se encuentra ayudándose a sí misma.

Taken with Pentax k-5

This photo is one of your greatest. It is for a wonderful cause, note the breast cancer awareness ribbon above your breast. The facial expressions are beautiful and look very thought out. The pink hair and overall pink hue contrasts greatly against the blue eyes and white lotuses. This piece's originality and the odd tranquility of it makes it very different from what you see on a regular basis here on Deviant Art. Even while the colors pop, you've embodied the peaceful and sometimes silly essence of a woman well.
I can see nothing wrong with this piece in any way. It's absolutely beautiful.
You've got a great talent and you know how to use it. Keep up the great work.

P.S. I love your use of colors in all your pieces. They're just fabulous.
What do you think?

i like the colors of this a lot. i really like the combination of white and pink lotus flowers...very effective. the blue irises stand out wonderfully in this nearly monochromatic color scheme. well done! at first the one eye open bothered me, because it upset the balance of the piece...but it makes SO much sense with the picture's meaning and function. i totally get it.

the only constructive criticism i would give on this is to maybe reinforce the lotus on the blinking gets fuzzy where the images are joined, thereby making the seam more obvious than it otherwise would be. i think it could be fixed by sharpening the petals though...

great example of what should be done with an image, the colours, the composition,  simply take something ordinary and make it extraordinaryI am a dummy!

this is a great piece, however the one thing that would've greatly improved it would've been if all eyes would've been open
