I'm not Quite sure what this is about or what I was thinking at the time I got the idea for it, but it all started with a sketch with the person staring off into the distance and birds flying and caption "It does not do to have a mind of a bird if you aren't going to fly." And then I decided to elaborate on it, took a picture of my own profile (which is SO eye-burning that I'm absolutely refusing to post it anywhere), chopped it up beyond recognition, did the same with pictures of a sunrise and my dress that I'd taken before, painted over them so that nothing of the chop was remaining and um well this is the outcome. It's not a pure painting, but it's quite far from a photomanip as I painted over absolutely Everything, so I decided to stick it in the Misc category. Just consider it a (much needed) stress relief sort of thing.
Also, an entry into =Elixia-Dragmire
, 'cause I'm realising more and more that it's an inner self painting in a way.
Corel Painter 9, Wacom Intuos 3, well and Canon Powershot a95.
