I love the blueish overtone of the sky, and the marvelous purple and orange shading of the skin. Although it doesn't look like the most realistic thing ever - it certainly is one of the most beautiful things ever.
I actually like the grayscale piece better, as it lets you focus less on the color and more on the IMAGE. Lets you think about the concept and beauty more.
This piece of artwork (and the non-colored version too) are simply exquisite!
Thanks very much, Eli-- I prefer the grayscale version, too, but there were enough inquiries about a colored version that I went ahead and did this-- there are things I like about this, for sure! Thanks for taking a look...
