one of my favorite stylizations of lotuses i've ever seen! and this definitely looks like it should be a stained glass piece. it blows my mind, to think how come you've far since the days of traumabunny...
Okay, first of all, i saw someone say that you are still in school.....blank faced the f#&k out of me.....second it blank faced me cause you ARE A STUPID BEAST of a WOMAN AT THE ARTS YO! What do you want to get into with your work, what field? Let me know, PLEASE LETS TALK!!!!!!
This is lovely as usual, and i think you need to be working right now, my story is one kinda like it, i'll tell you more about it, please note me, and lets Skype or something. PEACE!
I normally don't comment on your stuff (mostly because I feel like there's nothing I can add to it) but I wanted to comment on this specially because I'm so attached to this. the waterlilies and Art Noveau stylings go together so perfectly, I can hardly take it. I seriously keep thinking this is a meticulously-done stained glass piece every time I see it.
I adore your work. The quality of your lines, the harmony between your choice of colors, the thematic elements of your work--it leaves me reeling (in a good way!). You are incredibly talented--this is such a simple piece, but it is so graceful and stirring. I am working through so many layers of emotion looking at this. You are an inspiration!
Do you mean the lines of the plant stems or the glowing outlines? The stems I just draw but the glowing outlines:
Working in Photoshop CS2 on a mac: Layer (should be one of the dropdown menus at the top of the screen) >Layer Style >>Stroke A popup menu appears and from there you can determine how many pixels thick it should be, the opacity, whether you want a gradient or a solid color, etc etc. It's a pretty nice, quick little trick when you get the hang of it.
