It did not win Contessa, but it did win Daily Deviation on DeviantArt, it has now been added to 600+ "favorites" lists by other DeviantArt members, and received over 10,000 views on Kat's (NightshadeBeauty) portfolio on DeviantArt in a very short period of time.
I was thrilled to hear that this is Kat's 2nd time winning Daily Deviation for her outstanding make-up and bodypaint work. She is an all-round artist, and is definitely one of my favorite make-up artists to work with. When it comes to art, Kat puts her passion into everything she does.
Although we did not win Contessa, I believe that everyone who took part in the shoot put in a lot of work into making this a successful collaboration. In my honest definition, a successful photographic collaboration is one that results in images that are portfolio-worthy for all the people involved in the photoshoot. I feel that we have achieved that, and I am very happy to have been a part of this.
Kudos go out to Kat, Eriko, and Shimon. Wishing you guys all the best!
