Snail Vanity by halcyonschism Snail Vanity by halcyonschism
The second snail picture. This one was actually taken before the first, right as I set him down on the mirror. Little sucker seemed quite interested in himself... Thanks to all the people who commented and fav'd the last one. Y'all made my day!

Oops. Hehe. Sorry, I thought I saw you type pet or something like that.
werewolf-skin Featured By Owner May 5, 2007
For the first time, I'm seeing a snail that doesn't look weird or disgusting. I love how how he's all like, "What's this I'm seeing?" Like he, unless he hasn't, seen his reflection before. Really cute pet, I love it.

This is GORGEOUS! I love it! *pets the snail* Beautiful art, and a beautiful model. Excellent idea, with the mirror.
sablepanther Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2006

I LOVE this picture! What a fantastic idea, the whole mirror thing! I love snails, used to have a GA Land Snail (am getting another soon - my Motyher killed my last one :-( ) and was doing a search to try and prove to someone that snails are beautiful. No-one agrees. However, I seem to have found one of the few people in the word who DO agree. Am I right?

PS. Excuse bad grammer, spelling etc today as am in a lot of pain - stomach condition. *groans* But the pretty snails made me happier :-)

Your welcome^^

This is such a gorgeous photograph, of such an unlikely model. The glimmer of light on the mirror looks amazing - like the snail is floating in some weird shimmering air. The snail looks so luminess! It seems to be fairly glowing with the light bouncing from the mirror and what I assume is the sky above.
halcyonschism Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2004   Photographer
Well, thank you. I got very, *very* lucky with the lighting. The sun had just come up, and the angle was spot on. I think the picture wouldn'tve come out nearly as well even ten minutes later. I'm still surprised my little 2mp I had at the time did the picture justice.

The weird spotting you see on the mirror is the reflection of the camoflauge netting that I was under at the time. I probably should've put something about that in the description.

I appreciate your in-depth comment very much. You pretty much just made my day. :)

The luminescence of the sail is beautifully captured. Nice.

failed Featured By Owner May 17, 2003
Very nice. Composition is pretty killer, snail looks sharp, what with the semi-transparent nature of his skin, the lighting, allthough only really sunlight is also key, and the colors are good too. All over a nice shot. Good work.
theriddler Featured By Owner May 17, 2003
hehe. Very good. I love the clear reflexions. It almost looks like your taking the picture from the bottom...or are you?

Lol. Great job!

Snails are cool... and usually they're not very well represented in art so I'm glad you did this.
