Illustration Friday - Spring Garden Fairy























Putting it all together...

Creating the Garden theme image was especially fun for me as I love anything having to do with the Garden, except weeding of course...

Here are the images I used in this piece. Using blending modes, layer styles, a render light effect, and plenty of layers, I tried to create a collage with depth and an ethereal feel.

It's very satisfying to see the effect and yet, I know I could take these same elements, change a couple of things and create something almost entirely different. That's what I like about a program like Photoshop -- the endless possibilities!

Very nicely done Rebecca. I like the way you've placed the woman IN the flowers and that the flowers are larger in size than she. It emphasizes her and yet ties the whole composition together. I like too the pale color you've chosen for the background. And you know what? I'm with ya' on the digital. I'm heading more and more in that direction. There's just so much MORE you can do.
