May Daze by astrangeallure May Daze by astrangeallure
I made this for Digital Whisper's "Hopeful Challenge" [link]

I'm still not sure about it so I'm gonna ponder it before submitting. Seems maybe too dark.

I agree with the comment above. I do not find it too dark, but if you do, why don't you try to make her face a bit lighter, maybe...? The body-buds are excellent additions - first I thought they are kinda the imitation of the St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, Russia...

Yes that was it....thank you!! I erased some of the texture just underneath. I googled St. Basil's...ha, yes, it does look like that! Cool. These are roses that are growing in my back yard...I loved that they were all bunched up together as buds...bestest buds.

I am very envious:) that you can use your own photographs. I can't... I either shoot crappy ones or forget to take the camera with me when I could shoot better subjects. Or I am too lazy to carry our good camera and just take my compact one that does a decent job for family pics but for art it is useless.

I really like taking pictures, though my skills are limited...but all of this came about because I wanted to post something off of dA and never got a response from the stockholder when I asked for permission to do so...so if I can avoid that situation again, I will. I do appreciate everyone who provides stock and I especially love it when people provide stock as unrestricted or they don't mind if you post on other sites...I understand why some don't and I respect their rules, it's just inconvenient sometimes. And I myself have started a stock account (pay back and forward), jut gotta put some photos on there. :D

Yep - there is a stocker in DA whose pics I love and I want to use them so badly; but you can't just download them, you have to note him or leave a comment at the pic that you would like to use the images so you need a larger version of it etc etc. Well, I wrote to him/noted him 4 times and he never ever answered. Honestly, I don't get it... If he doesn't want to deal with these things why not deactivate the account and then his pic won't show up in almost EVERY search no matter what the search word is (I am not kidding)? So yes, I understand your frustration.

Yeah...that's more frustrating, actually...I guess they just forget about their accounts? Is there a way to receive notes, etc. in emails? I've never looked to see if that is a feature, just assumed it wasn't?

Probably they forget... So I am OK with it actually. I don't think you can get email notification on the notes - which is such a pain as my life revolves around my gmail account :D And sometimes I read my notes and don't have time to reply but of course as soon as you read them they stop being "new" and I forget them forever... I wish they fix this or set it up differently...

Yes, I have the same issue with notes. :) Yes, receiving email notifications for notes would be good, odd that they don't let you have that as an option.

Great. Excellent manipulation, I love the result. And, personally, I love it this dark. Highlights the light in the face.

Thank you! :D I ended up erasing some of the texture so that her face stands out more....now the butterflies on the texture underneath come through a little better. :)
