"Black Diamond" by tanya-and-coffee is a one of a kind artwork that, funny enough, reminds me of my childhood. Why? Because I remember the good old times when many people wore oversized t-shirts with glorious images such as this beauty. They always amazed me, and this gem is no exception.

The portrait presents an exotic beauty, complimented by black diamonds, hence the title I believe. I cannot sense much vision, as the artwork doesn't seem to be emotionally-directed, but rather focused on decorative impact- which it does perfectly.

As I have mentioned before, this image really snapped me back into the past. I consider this to be very original and an unusual thing to find between today's 'artistic' nonsense.

Being a digital painting, it is clear that the artist has mastered the aspect perfect for the style used. The colour composition and atmosphere created thanks to all the different effects the creator has used point to the professional work of tanya-and-coffee.

While, as I said before, I find the image to be more decorative then emotion-evoking, it's still worthy of mentioning that there is something very unusual about the image and its exotic atmosphere, which I cannot quite put my finger on.

All in all, I cannot say more than the simple fact that I am in love with the image and its elements. I will just add an unruly comment that I'd love a t-shirt with such a design to find its way into my wardrobe (sorry, I had to).
What do you think?
