wow, I love the overall piece!
only suggestion that I have is that I would like to see the clouds less stroke-y, unless of course that is the style you were going for (you know like Van Gogh strokes).

p.s. love body painting, did you try to use tube top instead of tank top so more skin/art is visible?

hehe it wasn't the style I was going for, it was the only one I could think of =P
I'm no good at drawing clouds, you see :fear: They either look stylized, or cartoony :tantrum: :giggle:
Hopefully I can revisit this one, and do it a little better :)

Thank you very much for saying so :D &Thanks for the fave, as well :meow:
it's always a little tricky to photograph body art, as it looks different from all angles =P

It's good to see you making improvements on some of your older pieces. :)
Seeing this again, it definitely stands the test of time. This is still definitely my favourite body-art piece that you've done. :wow: :highfive:

:iconshesabromide:
ShesABromide Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011
Yeahh, I was browsing through some of them and looking for what could be changed. :nod:
There's lots that I would like to improve, but many of them should just be done over completely.
I'll just do subtle touchups, first =P

What are some of the one's that you want to do over completely? :hmm:
Don't get too carried away buddy :XD:

lol I know, I know. Just some of them that I'm not as happy with =P
Like, I'll keep the old ones, but I'll upload the new versions seperately.
It's not all body art, some of them are just normal photographs. Like, I was going to upload some of them we got with Dawn at the mall downtown, but instead I got some day shots I'm going to upload, as they look much better. :nod:
And like, I got some photos at the eaton center a while ago during the winter, and later I got some in the summer which were more appealing, so I just added those later. :nod:

Okay that's a relief. I was worried you might completely replace some photos that I really liked haha =P
I can't wait to see your new photos! :woohoo:
Maybe once you have enough revisited shots you could make some sort of comparative image!:O Show off the major differences between the new ones and the older ones, you know? :D

I'll probably just put a link/thumbnail of the old image in the description of the old one =P

I was listening to OKGo while doing this one... :meow: "It's like a sky dive, or getting high, the kind of thrill that could just kill ya" :lmao:
The song is so swanky and 70's :giggle: &the video is trippy as all hell [link] :dummy:

I really like the one for Invincible, too. The description is like,
"If you love explosions and great music, this is for you" or something =P It's very entertaining :)

This one is my most favourite of your uploads tonight! I can tell you spent a lot of time on this one, Elissa :D

I love how it starts off at your chest like a normal sky, but then ask it goes up to your face the clouds start to take over. Very cool
Reply
:iconshesabromide:
ShesABromide Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2010
Hehe it actually didn't take as long as you might think =P
Like, I started off trying to make it all detailed, so the process was slow and tedious,
but I realised pretty soon that if you go quickly instead, the colour blends a lot easier and spreads nicely without looking too textured. :nod:
Overall, it was very fun to do this one :aww:

Dude, by the way, have you ever thought of becoming like a make-up artist? :hmm:

You'd definitely be good at it! :D

I guess, I mean I do like painting as well as sculpture :nod:
But I don't know how well I could handle application of materials to skin =P I might try that though,
=Anmagdan has some rather inspirational pieces in terms of material use :nod:

Now that's pretty darn amazing... makes you look like a cross between an impressionist painting by Monet and a surrealist painting by Dali. Very impressive.

I love Dali :flirty: and Monet :D Or is it Manet? :giggle:
Hehe either way, thank you kindly for the feedback on my work :) and for the fave :aww:
