All my own work except the feet. I painted a colorful background in ArtRage to which I added Photoshop brushes. I then cut the dress and hat from the background and used my own painting of face and arms. Photoshop splatters were applied to the black background. Font filled with background.
This week's theme "Vogue" made me think of Fifties Fashion and, of course, Grace Kelly, and of course the song from High Society - "Well, did you evah?" - Photo found on Google, background by Itkupilli.
This week at the Muses the theme is "GO FISH". I found this image on my e-vint.com collection. It has been extracted and coloured. The background and seaweeds are from January at Mischief Circus, the fish were Googled and the bubbles are from Lorie Davison.
My "hearts and violins" picture is for Take a Word and Digital Whisper, a case of piercing two hearts with one sharp bow. Much better than killing two innocent birds with one stone. The musical lady is my own creation, painted in ArtRage digital painting program. I'm particularly proud of the bustier. The background is a collage of various bits of old ephemera. The violin and bow were googled.
This week Bev has chosen the theme of the Romany people. The image is from e-vint.com (no longer selling photos). I have coloured the photo from its original black and white. The frame and background and bird are from Lorie Davison.
