    I haven't made anything in over a year and I haven't posted any art in even longer (closer to two years), so I'm easing back into things. Nothing spectacular from me, but just practicing and trying to remember how to do things in Photoshop

    The Actress

    1366x768 | 1280x800

    Resources are from hireshotties@lj, some old stock images from a site that no longer exists (Romain's) and textures from Jenni Lou and Firecracker

    Just for good measure I'll attempt some feedback for Mara:
    Really pretty piece, I love the subtle texturing and the lights that looks like she's surrounded by flames in the smaller picture I love the font you've used for "Catherine" as well!

    Mara, I love the coloring on the Catherine Zeta Jones piece! It's so different, but beautiful. I also love the lighting on the image on the right... The bright colors are featured well.

    Line, OMG! Your lighting in this Kiersten Dunst piece is amazing! I love the warm, buttery yellows in this piece, too... So pretty!

    I don't know if this really fits here, so if not feel free to move it.

    This is a crossover piece between "The Walking Dead" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". For some reason, I just see Rick and Buffy as this pair that would totally connect and understand each other. They have both been shoved into these leader roles within their circles, and are forced to make hard choices for the good of the people they love.

    I created this piece today after finding this quote I used on the piece. I always hear people saying they live hard lives, but I don't think they think their lives are hard; they just accept that it's part of who they are.

    I was originally going to enter this in the Vivaldi challenge, but I didn't think it really fit into that challenge. But I'm very proud of how it turned out and wanted to share it with y'all.

    I don't know. I was bored. This is the first thing I've finished since I got my new computer last year, even though I've started many.



    brushwork by me, textures by soaked, star stock by some science blog (lol sorry for the vagueness, you can literally search fisheye stars or something like that and a lot of similar things will pop up)
    would you do anything for me

    buy a new diamond ring for me

    to HisMrs.

    Congratulations - it's a beautiful piece - like how you used the text and the background images. Terrific blending of lighting. I don't know the Walking Dead series but the "hard life" and "acceptance" certainly fits Buffy even with her often wanting the "normal life" - she did her duty as the Slayer.

    I swear to god, I wrote feedback for four artists here and my browser just went crazy

    I'll get you guys tomorrow, I promise!

    ***EDIT***

    Feedback, as promised:

    Spoiler:
    Aureola
    Wow, I really like these! The way you go from blends to cut outs is amazing, you've clearly perfected and mastered your techniques. The colors, while vibrant and strong, are also mostly natural which is really admirable and amazing. You can see that you actually knew what you wanted to do in every piece and not just winged it like I would mostly do. Very cool.

    HisMRS
    While I've never seen the Walking Dead, I understand what you were going for. The grungy textures are well used and monochromatic colors are also put to well use, cause they sustain this vibrant glow and that's what glues the piece together. Otherwise, the grunge style with the brown color scheme would not work for me. So job well done

    Mara
    I really like the blend, amazing composition and the use of stock/texture to structure the piece is amazing. It creates this amazing composition, especially on a white background. Not much to say about the colors, but I do admire your choice to go with BW. The only thing I have to say, really, and feel free to ignore me and move on, is that the black & white text, along with the fonts is not your best choice. But it is your work, so feel free to blow me off.

    My first celebrity wallpaper in years, featuring Tom Hiddleston. 'Cause the kitty in this photoshoot broke me. %)


    1920x1080 | 1680x1050 | 1366x768

    + Tumblr version under the cut.

    Spoiler:




    Edit: and a picspam-styled collage that I made for 'My Aesthetic' meme. The original photos are also by me, except for the flame, the meteor, and the galaxy.

    Lunafreya



    I just recently did a digital painting on a character called 'Lunafreya' from the game Final Fantasy 15. It was a fantastic game I truly enjoyed it!

    Until next time

    Priceless thank you so much! for that wonderful comment that really means everything to me.

    Secondly, welcome to this section of the forum where there are threads you can gain knowledge and experience. There is a challenge open if you wish to participate. Once upon a time, this side was so popular now sadly it's deserted only me spamming these threads.

    You are more than welcome to showcase any kind of art in the specific threads which are made initially for their purposes. If you need a helping hand in anything just don't be shy, I'm happy to help out.

    So it's a warm welcome from me!

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I love your art and one day I might enter some challenges, but right now there is no way I could compete at your level. @Stoney has pointed me in the direction of some tutorial threads, so I'm expanding my knowledge.

    My problem is that I'm not a perfectionist I'm pretty slapdash, and because I'm learning, if I don't know how to do something I dont persevere, I just move onto something else.

    You are so welcome.

    I personally think that banners and avatars are amazing just to experiment and get adjusted to the tools, you can learn so much from a lot of experimenting and having fun! Just create! the things that help me throughout the years was by doing that I would also say as well, try and get inspiration from ANYTHING that always helps me even if it's just as small as type, composition or scale that way you learn by studying other inspiration it really works. Also, patience! because Priceless I'm also still learning and trying to improve on specific skills, but, remember Priceless just HAVE FUN!
