This is so beautiful and emotive that its beauty is almost unbearable. It strikes me with creativity, genious and uniqueness. Hauntingly beautiful, almost obsessively. Lighting, colour, shape. Evereything works together here that I wonder isn`t this a representation of pure perfection. The emotion lying in the eyes of the monk, the flask filled with an intriguing substance... The character has so much mistery in him, so much words untold (will he ever share them?), so much emotion, sorrow.
I can`t help but wonder what would his story be about, what he hides, what he has done, what he has yet to do. I can`t help but ask you... please, take in my deep delight in this piece of cretive genius! It captured me beyond words!

Oh, thank you for these words!
What about the character... I've drawn it first on my bookmark, and then decided to make photo, which is composed as on the drawing. I hadn't any specific story for this, but I can tell you that I always thought very interesting and dramatic the fight that monks hold every moment inside themselves. The hidden passions they are not allowed, the strong feelings... They even can't drink a glass of water without asking their prior. They are searching for the truth, but their mind is very chained...

The very story the facial expression shows is so sad...

Because the monk is very exhausted by his obedience

A great concept, with an very expressive expression.
The use of the make-up... the light and softness of the colors and textures is wonderful.
