Unlease the animal instincts

By KatrienaEmmanuel  
another from my first on location shoot with model - Brodie Fleming.

Added some textures from a stock account online and viola...blended them in with the natural background of the location

Give me your thoughts, was thinking to put a butterfly on her finger tips on her left hand which is on the far right corner of the photo...what do you think?

Not sure she needs a butterfly to be honest

I think this is a very nice image, and gets the message across very well. I can understand the desire to place a butterfly on the hand, but I think this would not improve the image, and may either distract from the eyes/face, or perhaps soften the message, - less animalistic and more fairy tale. I wonde rif something a bit more sinister, like a snake someplace, like over that leaf on the left would be more in line with the image's theme? Nice as is though. Ive loaded a mod with the skin tone a tad less yellow, though theres nothing wrong with the original.

A good image with great tones, to be honest I think if you add any thing you will distract from the model. Nice as it is, I would leave it
what a creature truelly one of gods gifts for the animal instincts BUT rule of thirds puts the butterfly on her wonderful elbow top right intersecting lines too keep the eye on the very eye pleasing subject and not take it away to another part of the picture the wonderment of the instinct must be focused on the main subject

I love the contrast of the textures, from the models soft skin to the rough bark. If I was to do this, I would probally rough up/back comb the models hair, and get in touch with more of her primal side, maybe even trying to bear her teeth with prominant canines? Not sure how it would look, but just some ideas. Fantastic image overall though.

thanks guys for the comments and yes i agree with Andrew, my model has braces and is hard to coax into even smiling as you will notice from the other pictures, even though I told her it can be easily photoshoped out. I do want to retry this with a more dirty animalistic look, messy hair etc.....but this was a shot from a bikini shoot at the beach...go figure and was experimenting with her to give me different expressions

Thanks Willie, I like all your ideas and your modficiation looks good too, although I dont see much difference in skin tone, just lighter really...but going for a darker feel to blend in with background. I do love the idea with a snake maybe coiled around her hand, but then again maybe too distracting from the model as the subject
