I hope and pray in the darkness of the night; maybe I hope in vain, but even that makes sense.

I have featured your work in a news article that means a lot to me, [link] the subject is suicide.
A very dear friend of mine killed himself at my home 5 weeks ago and I feel a strong need to get the word out about depression along with anxiety disorders that add to the risk of suicide.

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D.(^oibyrd's daily devs) feature :winner: ! congrats! !! :clap:
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure and also, to introduce the more popular artists to the new/overlooked deviants. I prefer to showcase ALL artwork that I love (and that includes popular artists with a fair amount of traffic to their work) in order to create a non-biased feature of the talent on dA. *PLZ DO KEEP IN MIND - some of the features are quite popular and obviously don't need extra help - however - I enjoy posting them because they inspire other artists. Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! Sandi xoxo

O branco...
A pose...
A cruz...
A luz...
O facto de estares sem roupa... nua, despida de tudo, de todos os preconceitos, pecados e materiais humanos, apenas a tua alma rezando... esperando... crendo...

Está absolutamente lindo..............

Há muito tempo que não dou um favorito, por não conseguir deixar de olhar para um anjinho chamado Elsa (~anja-caida), mas este dedico-o mesmo a ela... e a ti que fizeste um trabalho que me encheu a alma de tudo aquilo que eu precisava e não tinha...

Obrigada.

As you know, I like this very very much! I just thought of something though and figured I'd run it by you. Did you think of doing this with a black border? It'd look very different of course, and perhaps not to your liking. On a symbolic level, however, I like the idea of this intense praying figure in its field of white hope, surrounded by black despair.

I think it'd look nice visually too. Just in case you didn't think to try that. It's great the way it is, of course. :)

Gostei da brancura da foto. Acho que ajuda a realçar aquilo que pretendes transmitir.
A tua pose e a ausência de qualquer outro elemento/instrumento, que não a pequena cruz que seguras, ficam também muitissimo bem aqui.
Está uma composição muito boa.

só um bocadinhozinho de overexposed(o contorno dos dedos/mao estao incompletos, noutro angulo talvez ficasse melhor, mas assim parece que algo da foto é cortado), de resto ta fixe, a simplicidade ta la. :clap:
