Le Vaisseau Fantome by AlexandraVBach Le Vaisseau Fantome by AlexandraVBach
This artwork is a collaboration with my best friend Karine. She is an appreciator of my images, and recently she told me about a vision she had before falling asleep. She had imagined a ghostly woman as the prow of an ancient and decayed boat and asked me if I could do a manipulation using this concept.

I have agreed and finally came up with this. The result is a bit different from her original vision since working with stock photos is somehow restricting, but I think I am quite close to her idea.
I also had in mind the image of Saori Kido turned into the prow of Odin's ship in an old Saint Seiya movie. (for the ones who know ^^)

Everything is not perfect in this manip but I like the way it came out.

Stocks used are from *mizzd-stock :heart:

I adore the way her skin looks greenish and the way you managed to make her fade against the ship on the bottom when her face and shoulders are so concrete.
To me, she looks like the memory of a dream which slowly fades away by the awakening.
It is not only the picture that catches my sight, but the feeling and the story hidden behind.
Let me say this piece is amazing.

I finally came by to leave a comment on this magnificent image. I am very much impressed with the heroic atmosphere, the placing of the main character at the centre of the image fits the overall intention perfectly. I also love how it is solid-looking, although you managed to create and keep the ghost-like effect. It makes me think the ship is not floating on the waves, but she had summoned the wreck of the ship from the bottom of the sea and now the ship is slowly emerging from the waves at her command. It's like she's there in the storm and the time and space got frozen. Congratulations on a very balanced, greatly achieved and convincing visual story.

Gorgeous! Now to completely sound stupid- when I saw the net on the ship I thought that the ship had capillaries / veins lol. It made me like it even more for some reason- like it gave a reason on why ships are exactly treated as their own beings by sailors who follow under the old traditions, and why there are legends of ghost ships.

The sky background and the temperamental ocean was perfect for setting the mood :) And the solemn expression on the model as well as the ghostly quality of her dress...my goodness *_*

I don't think I can say anymore that will be worthy of this image. :worship:
