Lady Harvest I by Smaug11 Lady Harvest I by Smaug11
This is an entry to the :iconjust-for-dolls: Delicious Autumn Contest. We were given the following quote from George Eliot as inspiration:

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird, I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

I was inspired by the "my very soul is wedded to it" part, so I tried to achieve a "bride" feeling with Li Pong, as well as a hint of the harvest, as a nod to the "deliciousness".

But I also had another inspiration for these pictures:
When I was in Elementary School, we had prints of the Four Seasons allegories by Giuseppe Arcimboldo on the wall. I loved those pictures, all those tiny details and the creativity! This photoshoot was also inspired by his works.

~~~
Everything in Li Pong's hair grew on trees and bushes. No plastic apples, or fake berries ;)

This is simply gorgeous.
The lighting and perfect warm colours call up images of Caravaggio.

Thankeee! Unfortunately I didn't win - but well, I never win anyway, so no surprise there. At least I had fun decorating Li Pong for the Autumn :D
