Fire VS Ice by ScorpionEntity Fire VS Ice by ScorpionEntity
:devart:

FULL VIEW

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate

To know that for destruction ice

Is also great

And would suffice.


Robert Frost - Fire and Ice (Poem 1920)

Fire and Ice was inspired by a passage in Canto 32 of Dante's Inferno, in which the worst offenders of hell, the traitors, are submerged, while in a fiery hell, up to their necks in ice: "a lake so bound with ice, / It did not took like water, but like a glass ... right clear / I saw, where sinners are preserved in ice."

The lovley twin sisters, my models (*JustMeOnyX and *roxaralu) did a remarcable job with the make'up and also with the editing.
My special thanks also goes to the Lighting technician, Andrei (~azrael-x64) who made this concept possible.
And I also want to thank Dragos (~NightWulf-TheUndead) for the patience and support with the indoors location.

Given 2010-03-03
Fire VS Ice by =ScorpionEntity The Suggester said: "Two elements of nature next to each other, in more human version. Absolutely stunning make-up, dress, and other features are the elements that make this photography so strong - at least for me. Face expressions just make it better. I simply love it." (Also suggested by =blue-id) ( Suggested by Mr-Heli and Featured by Shalora )

I love this series of photos. They're so gorgeous. The make-up and the clothes and the details like the jewelry absolutely cinched this as one of my favorites.

Just one small question....how exactly did you go about doing the backgrounds?

I imagined this before in a poem I made:
"Fire is hot and ruthless
Ice is cold and unforgiving"
This picture fits it very much. I give you and the others my thanks for making this! :D

:iconcircleplz: Hello! I am making a new web magazine about the DeviantArt community. It will be featured only on dA and I won’t sell it – it will be a free read for anyone who is interested.
I want to include a little feature and your artwork is exactly what I look for. Can I please have your permission to feature it?
Your name and the name of the picture will be right below the picture. I will show a small thumbnail of your artwork and link to the original so don’t be afraid of art theft (I have dealt with this before, I know how unpleasant it is).
