Alex: Flaming July by nfredman ()

With apologies to Frederick Lord Leighton...but Flaming June has long been one of my favorite Pre-Raphaelite paintings--a style that has been a great inspiration to me.
And...I have long wanted to do Alex in this pose! I so love to portray people sleeping. There's something mesmerizing about it.
Production notes: M4 Enhanced with my own character; "Summer Siesta" set from DAZ with some Egyptian Pottery and LB plants; Sunstrokes background; my own lighting setup in Poser 7 Pro. Hair and cloth painted in post, with the frame & a little color kick as well.
Alex says: "Send Coronas! With citrus rum, thank you." He's so polite. How can we refuse?

Brilliant perspective love the flow of the sheet and the simplistic feel of innocents in the image!! That's what makes sleeping characters so appealing even hard characters seem carefree or venerably innocent at rest! A perfect thing to have as an inspiration Love it!!

Absolutely beautiful, doll. You've captured the posture and serene tone of the original perfectly. There is no need to apologize on this! Your such a stunning artist, and you wonder why I count you as one of my inspirations? Beautiful piece....absolutely.

Awww, I would cuddle up with him and also fall asleep rightaway... Love the cloth painting. I am learning this at the moment, so I highly respect this. :-) And he is so cute when he sleeps... I like watching sleeping people anyways... the cutest of all of them is my son though... ;-) Ah, PS: I think, he snors, not loud, but he does. ;-)
